Yes, she’s styled Michelle Obama. But beyond that, Ikram Goldman has long been a champion of emerging design talent, and she outfits all of her clients in edgy looks from ridiculously talented designers. She’s the Midwest’s high fashion ambassador known around the world for a reason.

900 North Michigan Shops

This Magnificent Mile anchor boasts a six-level Bloomingdale’s and over 70 upscale shops that include a line-up of world-renowned brands like Gucci, Michael Kors, and MaxMara in addition to an eclectic mix of unique boutiques
