Dylan Lauren is as Sweet as her Father Ralph
Dylan Lauren opened Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC, right in midtown near Bloomingdales
and Lexington Avenue. There have been recent renovations to make room for more sweets.
She sells old styled candy, clothing, body products with flavors, pillows, and other accessories.
She graduated from Duke University with a major in fine arts and decided to go to candy and
design tradeshows to create this candyland fantasy. She parterned with Jeff Schwartz, from
FAO schweetz. The business has been around for sometime and since then stores have been
opened in the Hamptons, Orlando, Houston, and there are plans for some international venues
such as Tokyo. The irony is there is a dentist's office right above the Manhattan location, so
be careful of your sweet tooth. She also has candy for diabetics and markets to adults as well.
Do not be surprised to see birthday parties and charity events which are held often. Gift
baskets for all occasions and a store decorated with candy encased in the stairway and a huge
chocolate looking bear make it all the more appealing. Creativity flows in the Lauren family.
The question is how do you fit into Ralph's clothing after eating at Dylans.
