I was told by my clients who reside in Chicago that I had to visit IKRAM the high fashion boutique when I visited Chicago. That it is a unique shopping experience featuring a selection one would expect in Paris or Milan. My friends were not mistaken because I was totally mesmerized from the moment I walked into this store or should I state museum of retail fashion.

With a red lacquer exterior you are greeted by a comprehensive selection of designer clothing, accessories and fine & costume jewelry. In the back you will find shoes and handbags throughout. With a selection of vintage to complement the high fashion selections, on the 2nd floor is home wares and an amazing restaurant.

From Alexander McQueen, Victor & Rolf, Chanel and to showcasing many young designers; IKRAM is a locally owned boutique that is unique in this age of mass production. Many items that you can’t find anywhere else await you here! The founder Ikram Goldman has shown that fashion does not have to be based in New York and that a city like Chicago can be on the vanguard of high end and emerging fashion.
