Who We Are
La Botica is a conceptual pop-up shop. We are motivated by art, botanicals and beauty. Established as a curated space and collective by artist, Dawn Marie West, La Botica encapsulates edits of local brands that evoke dreamy beauty, the romantic and the undone. Dawn Marie created the brand, La Botica to curate all the possibilities for a beautiful, muse-worthy identity and lifestyle.
The presence of La Botica is to feel purposefully as a concept space exhibiting beautiful things. Feelings of stumbling on unusual pieces that you may have not even known you needed. Many of our things within the showroom are small runs until sold out, allows for our space to exhibit rotating brands/artists and things.
Working in the art and museum industry, Dawn Marie developed an innate ability to curate and find unusual brands and artists to work with. Her days spent working on art reflected this, however it is the quiet moments with the 'little things' as palo santo, a candle or her botanicals at home that are an intrical part of her identity.
Bringing together modern femininity, ritual and la cultura La Botica is an invitation to connect your souls aesthetic with your environment. Many of the artists we work with are local from Brooklyn to Nolita and everywhere in between.
A Note from Dawn Marie
Opening La Botica for me has been this concept of a space that is representative of my self-made sanctuary within the aesthetic nature of the gallery space. Its bringing together elements of necessity for a delicate, quiet life, specifically for the creative woman who is such a force to be reckoned with, that this mood has to be set aside meticulously and purposefully. Working in the Art and Museum industry, my self-care took a back seat for a minute, and it was only when I would come home to my self-made sanctuary of candles, comfortable bodysuits, palo santo, a great bachata playlist - all the things that got me ready for Monday, that sort of thing. - It was then that I realized there are a lot of working women that can relate, and those little things we add to our environment are so necessary for personal growth and to continue being that force to be reckoned with. La Botica is curated for those women, to be able to escape and vibe for a little while.
