When Les Habitudes swapped spaces on Robertson Boulevard a few years back, the budget-busting bridal boutique left a major void in the stretch's dress department. That emptiness will soon be filled by internationally-faved eveningwear brand Jovani, which is taking over the space with its bedazzled gowns and more.
Window signage confirms that the NYC-based brand is moving into the approximately 5,800-square-foot shop; per its website, the location looks like it'll be Jovani's first standalone Stateside outpost. (It currently has stores in Kuwait and Russia.) Expect the space to stock Jovani's bridal gowns, prom and pageant dresses, red carpet-ready styles, cocktail numbers, and more alongside accessories and footwear. No word yet on the opening date; stay tuned.
