Style Room 326
Gone are the days when a lady would kick back in the plush comfort of a private couture showroom to watch a défilé of leggy lovelies parading the season’s latest wrinkle. Or not so…?
Offering hushed, exclusive digs and unprecedented services, Style Room 326 bills itself as the crossroads ‘where fashion and style meet’, showcasing savvy womenswear to those prepared to sign on the dotted line, not unlike the secretive fashion salons of yesteryear.
A members-only retail showroom in Lakeview, it brings an entirely new shopping concept to Chicago, backed up by online purchases. Not a traditional boutique, but rather, an exclusive style community, it gathers like-minded style-lovers together. Members can access womenswear, shoes, and accessories at exclusive prices, as well as enjoying services from image consulting to monthly style chats and personalised wardrobe recs.
You’ll also get discounted pricing on special beauty-, fashion- and entrepreneur-themed workshops, and events including product launches. You can even throw your own fashion shindig, with Style Parties up for grabs if you gather 10 of your friends, with snazzy shopping, drinks and bites laid on. Look out for pop-up shops and book signings too. The current members’ price tag is USD$69.99 per year, with the first month free. Brands like 25k, Blue Rose, Du Jour and STMT are in the mix, so pick up a batwing Tee, black open-back maxi dress or floral blazer. Shop on!
