Fashion’s Happy Place Since 1999, Kirna Zabête is a women's luxury fashion destination featuring the best edit of the best designers of today and tomorrow – all personally selected by Beth Buccini. In 1999, Kirna Zabête opened at its first location at 96 Greene Street in SoHo. The colorful flagship soon came to be known as the candy store for designer fashion, and after nearly 15 years of success, Beth Buccini and Kirna Zabête started making some big moves. In 2013 the flagship location moved to a larger space at 477 Broome Street, and by the end of 2015, Beth had become the sole owner of her growing business. Then came a pop-up in East Hampton that did so well Beth decided to turn it into a year-round haven selling a selection of high-end fashion for every occasion from the wine bar to the sand bar. Soon after, a third store in Bryn Mawr on Philadelphia's Main Line was opened – a little jewel box oasis of city style. In December 2017, Kirna Zabête opened its fourth store in Palm Beach, bringing a radiant and luxurious shopping experience to Florida's sunny clientele. Today, Beth travels between her four boutiques as a wildly influential force in fashion, using her editor’s eye to curate the best in fashion, worn by the brightest, boldest, and most stylish of women.
