ikram is the Midwest's retail haven for high end enthusiasts and luxury connoisseurs. Located in Chicago's Gold Coast, ikram's 16,000 sq. ft space houses a slew of high end wardrobe, vintage pieces, obscure home goods, an art gallery, and a cafe.
ikram captivates your attention the minute you see it's vibrant red exterior. Once you enter, you can see the American, European and Japanese influence on the interior design which serves as the perfect backdrop for designers Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaïa, Comme des Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Junya Watanabe, and Proenza Schouler (all are carried at ikram).
WIth comparisons to Colette in Paris and 10 Corso Como in Milan, emerging designers often refer to ikram as one of the fashion industry's gateways to prominence and cultural relevancy; especially since it was founded by one the industry's gatekeepers, Ikram Goldman.
Ikram Goldman is known for her immaculate taste, styling Michelle Obama, and helping young designers including Jason Wu and Thakoon rise to stardom.
