We asked Project Runway finalist Rami Kashou -- who has his own storefront in Los Angeles -- to take us shopping. Here's his report:
Maxfield (8825 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, (310) 274-8800) is my favorite specialty and high-end designer boutique in LA -- a veritable one-stop shop for a fashionable life. I can find anything from a unique belt, candle, or accessory to the most elegant, show-stopping suit guaranteed to fit me like a glove. I especially love their selection of shoes and brands that I have not seen elsewhere in Los Angeles. The merchandising of the boutique is meticulous; I love when I walk into a store to shop and everything is visible. I tend to raid through every single piece before I decide what I will buy. Last but not least, Maxfield is my favorite place to shop simply because it is a place for the artist in me. It is the kind of place I want to go to and admire the work on the racks as though I were in an art exhibit.
