Style Bits:

  • Handmade haven, The Foundrie, currently located inside Chesterfield Mall is hoping to expand—but they need your help. By donating to their Indie Gogo campaign you can help owner Shelah McClymont meet the high demand for her carefully curated selection of locally made wares with the opening of a new location at West County Center.
  • After several years of business, and a stellar showing at STLFW, international clothing boutique Pace Farias has announced that they are closing the doors of their Plaza Frontenac location and relocating to Las Vegas, effective immediately.
  • Ivy Hill has announced that they will not be renewing the lease at their Central West End location. After six years of business, owner Hillary Dutcher has made the decision to focus solely on the boutique’s newest location at Ladue’s Colonial Marketplace. Ivy Hill CWE will close at the end of July, and customers can currently snag merchandise at 30 percent off.
  • “Project Runway:Under the Gunn” finalist and St. Louis-based designer Shan Keith announced on Facebook last week that his winning jacket design from the Francesca’s Challenge that aired on the show several weeks ago was put into production and is currently available both in-stores and online as of June 18.
