Ah! It’s been over a week (I think) since I formally announced my BIG news and it completely slipped my mind to post on here. I know, I know, what the hell was I thinking?! Oh wait … I was thinking that I need to furnish and merchandise a store in 6 weeks because we are opening a pretty amazeballs boutique in Bucktown June 27th! To say I’ve been slammed is an understatement but it is 100% worth all of the work. Ok, a little bit about the boutique:
von Z, founded by Chicago designer Jenna Zielbauer and her husband Patrick Zielbauer, will be located in the trendy Bucktown neighborhood and will bring new flair to an already bustling shopping scene. von Z’s name pays tribute to Patrick’s ancestors, who dropped the ‘von’ from their last name von Zielbauer to during their emigration out of Germany in the 1700s. As such, in addition to carrying fabulous domestic lines as well as Jenna’s own brand Cotton Candy Couture (sold in boutiques nationwide), Jenna will incorporate established European designers to create an incredibly diverse shopping experience that includes contemporary apparel, shoes, accessories, and even a few sweet treats! von Z will be located at 1874 N. Damen in Chicago.
A few of the lines carried are Bobi, Harlyn, Hunter Dixon, Pencey, Naven, oneoneseven, mata hari, Schutz shoes, Hazel, Dress The Population, Bardot, Blaque Label, Janessa Leone Hats (just picked up by Barneys) and Alice & Trixie. Our boutique will carry items as affordable as $35 – $350, kind of amazing right?
