When it comes to must-wears for winter, the latest collection from industry veteran Bonnie Young tops Chicago fashion guru Ikram Goldman’s list.
Bonnie Young is having a breakout season with her latest collection, featuring this tie-neck sequin column dress, price upon request.
It’s been less than two years since fashion designer Bonnie Young debuted her first women’s ready-to-wear collection, but she’s no industry newbie: Starting her career at Ralph Lauren, the Cornell grad joined Donna Karan in ’92, ultimately serving as the label’s creative director from 2000 to 2007.
No surprise, then, that Young’s own BY. line is coveted by some of the world’s most stylish women, and carried in an incredibly exclusive selection of boutiques—including River North temple of chic Ikram. “It’s an amazing women’s clothing line, and it’s not to be missed,” says owner Ikram Goldman, who is particularly enchanted with Young’s latest collection. “I love the fit,” she explains, adding, “I love that it’s full fantasy dressing—they’re fantasy clothes, billowing, drapey, pleated, beautifully cut clothes, that are just exquisite pieces to have in your closet and are at the ready for any occasion, dressy or casual. It’s a beautifully edited collection in a sea of exotic fashion.” Available at Ikram, 15 E. Huron St., 312.587.1000, ikram.com
