EVENT ALERT: Atelier AZZA To Make Retail Debut

There's an emerging Chicago-based clothing designer who's well on her way to becoming a household name: Azeeza Desai Khan.  Not only is she catching the attention of Vogue editors, fashionistas, and buyers across the country, but she's also my BFF.

This Sunday, March 11 her line Atelier AZZA, will make its retail debut at Dose Market, the premiere vendor marketplace for food, fashion, and design purveyors in Chicago. 

Azeeza sporting an embellished blazer from her SS12 collection. 

Intricate hand-woven and embroidered, fine cashmere summer shawls, as well as opulently embellished blazers, collars, and dresses from her SS12 collection will be available for purchase. Plus, with each Atelier AZZA buy, a garment will be provided to an impoverished South Asian woman in need. 

If you're looking for one-of-a-kind pieces that will get you noticed, definitely stop by Dose Market this weekend and check out Atelier AZZA. 

Do you make an effort to support local designers?

No I don't but I will certainly support AZZA. I love her style. Will I be able to purchase online since I'm not local??
