Alexander Graham Bell once said “When one door closes, another door opens.” I was working at Lola Boutique in Glen Ellyn when it closed its doors. The women I worked with there encouraged me to follow my dream so I opened Alla Moda's doors last November. The inspiration for the name, which means chic or fashionable in Italian, is a tribute to my late husband’s Italian heritage.
I believed this was an opportunity to offer women shopping in Glen Ellyn a unique and varied selection of clothing, jewelry and accessories with a focus on things Made in the USA, though I figured it would be fun for my customers to wear apparel from Italy, too. Our featured collections include the soft, playful, effortless styles from Comfy, Sympli, Clara Sunwoo and Snoskins as well as Lola Jeans, Nikibiki and TeezHer casual wear. I carry handbags from Sondra Roberts New York and jewelry from Nakamol Chicago as well.
Alla Moda is constantly evolving by seeking out top quality designer brands with styles that fit a variety of sizes, shapes and personalities, so we’ll be adding Elliott Lauren and Patrizia Luca to our Fall inventory.
We aim to provide not only wonderful apparel and accessories, but also level of customer service and personal styling that can’t be found online. We invite you to stop by and have a look around or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for new items and specials.
