Located at the top of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, LaunchPad is a revolving retail store that rotates fashion, accessories and home décor. Designed as a chic in-home living room, the LaunchPad experience changes weekly, offering a unique take on retail.
Our changing roster of designers, brands and creatives paired with custom in-store activations provides our customer with a distinctive shopping experience.
Co-founders Katherine Lande, current Fashion Editor of Palm Beach Illustrated magazine, and Nicole Munder, former VOGUE alum and fashion show producer, curate the collections with the surrounding market in mind. Located in a luxury destination where consumers crave variety and designers desire exposure, LaunchPad offers a modern approach to traditional retail.
One of our main goals is to help introduce and launch brands to Palm Beach and see them become successful in the market. We don’t want to protect brands and be competitive, rather encourage them to flourish in hopes of leading them to other potential opportunities in the community.
