One of the first fashion boutiques in Bucktown, p.45 was founded by Tricia Tunstall and Jessica Darrow in 1997. Since the day it opened, the shop has offered cutting-edge women's clothing and accessories from both established and up-and-coming designers. The merchandise is displayed in a simple, narrow interior adorned with pale hardwood floors, eco-friendly grass wallpaper, a sleek white checkout counter, and color-block dressing room curtains resembling Mondrian paintings. The handpicked garments range from structured jackets to minimalist dresses, and featured designers include 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jeffrey Monteiro, Obakki, Ulla Johnson, and local jewelry makers Sarah McGuire and Winifred Grace.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
