For high end or upscale, responsibly-sourced women’s fashions, Manouche is a must-stop shop. Located at 103 N. Oak Park Ave. in Oak Park (708 505-5546), this is a globally inspired boutique, with pieces made by independent artisans from all over the world.
Owner Kim Shimkus emphasizes intentional, timeless pieces that transcend trend and become permanent wardrobe staples. In sweaters, jackets, silky tops and dresses in bright summer hues, natural and organic fibers are key.
To meet its promise to customers of responsible manufacturing practices, Manouche prefers designers who own their own factories, employ their own workers or have a consistent on-site presence during the production process.
The chic, sophisticated store space showcasing the clothing and accessories boasts especially spacious fitting rooms. Manouche also offers personal shopping by appointment, a gift registry, installment plans and same-day local delivery service.Edit Module
