Obsessed with Gilbert A. Chagoury's couture creations but not exactly in the market for a custom-made ball gown? You're in luck. The LA-based designer, whose A-list fans include everyone from Katy Perry to Carrie Underwood, recently opened a new Chagoury Couture boutique on Melrose that houses his debut ready-to-wear collection.
Much like Chagoury's previous Beverly Hills outpost, his 8378 Melrose atelier offers his signature bespoke services, but is also home to the new line. LA Confidential notes that the collection includes form-fitting cocktail dresses, silky sheer blouses and tailored tuxedo blazers that are all exclusive to the new shop. If you have something fancy but not-too-fancy coming up, swing by.—Ashley Heaton
