Local Lookbook

Well Zzouzi Hats have finally hit stores (a single store really...but it's a start!) Showcased are thirteen hats and some headbands and clips.

The store is Local Lookbook and it focuses on Chicago designers with a range of prices. It is in the heart of Lincoln Park, right by Oz Park, a very cute area.

The owner wants to showcase Chicago talent, and show that we are as good as, if not better than all of the fashion capitals. Chicago's fashion scene is little to be desired, but with the talent the city produces, definitely up and coming. We have the talent, now all we need are the venues and events to expose our products.

Here is my set up:

Here are a few other things available at the store:

Evil Kitty

Also a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago,
Evil Kitty Designer is inspired by Animated project she made
while attending SAIC.

I saw her stuff at the store yesterday and she already has gotten offers to make more dresses (the one pictured specifically).

Very simple, very clean, unbelievably elegant.
Marisa uses her talents in painting to paint
on different silks and uses them in her different


A very fun line inspired by rockabilly style designed
by Belinda Cook, a classmate and fellow graduate of
the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Belinda uses a
combination of different screen printing and heat press
printing in her clothing lines.
Definitely someone to keep eye out for.

The soft opening of the store is today, next week we're sending out our announcement to the press, and our grand opening party is August 5th. If you guys are in the area - I would love for you to go check it out!
