It all began in 1977 when two N.Y.C. born sisters Tish and Snooky added some extra ambition to their rock 'n' roll lifestyle.
They gathered up some of their clothing designs and opened America's very first punk-style boutique on NYC's infamous St Mark's Place. Mom coined the name "MANIC PANIC as her two daughters rocked by night and became business proprietors by day. New York had never seen anything as cool as MANIC PANIC.
