After forming Sparkle Plenty Accents almost 2 decades ago — one of the first “kids on the block” to create custom rhinestone shirts and Swarovski sparkle wear — the company found new owners, a new home and a new name, Sparkle Plenty Designs. Now, more than a decade later, the masters of blingwear remain in Queen Village, and in 2014 they relocated their Sparkle HQ to The Foremost Building on historic Fourth Street. This month, Sparkle Plenty Designs marks the beginning of its fifth year in the Headhouse district, and we though it would be interesting to share a couple of fun facts (and photos) about the building where the sparkle is created for customers of all types (small business, schools, teams, spas, special events, venues, fundraisers, etc.). We hope you enjoy!
♦ This is the same building in which Sylvester Stallone filmed the famous meat-locker scene for the movie ROCKY
♦ The movie, Mannequin Two was shot her in the 1990s
♦ Actor Will Smith had offices in the building in 1988-91
The scene from years past:
And, just in case you’re not familiar about what we do: Sparkle Plenty Designs creates custom rhinestone logo-wear apparel like t-shirts, hoodies, yoga pants, caps, tote bags, decals and more. We can crystallize the look of a logo and add it to apparel for branding, staff, special promotions, local businesses, special events (birthdays/bat mitzvahs), fundraising opportunities.
Sparkle Plenty’s client list includes The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, NASA, The Ritz Carlton, THE TODAY SHOW, with the morning anchors sporting a large blinged out TODAY logo on their Olympic jackets, and has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, among other publications.
