In his hometown’s most famous mall, Walden Galleria, Westside is opening an art gallery named Buffalo Kids that will sell his Fashion Rebel streetwear brand in addition to some unreleased collaborations with well-known brands such as Nike . Original art, books, children’s apparel, and a new collection of Westside-designed hats will also be sold in the shop.
If you’re familiar with the crew of Griselda, you know they’re proud of Buffalo, the New York community. On of the label creators, Westside Gunn has just cemented this identity again, with plans plans to set up this luxury art gallery in the most prestigious shopping centers in the area.

Westside also talked about the project on press release
“This is one of the most exciting times of my life. Growing up in Buffalo, Walden Galleria has always been the premier shopping center. At age 14, I started designing clothing and I’ve always been taught the sky’s the limit,” – he said.
“I wanted to bring a lifestyle brand for the people and give them the highest quality garments at a high fashion designer level. I breathe art and this will give the city something to be proud of. I will do my best to provide experiences the town has never seen before. Thank you for supporting Griselda and now, I present to you, Buffalo Kids.”
