Cheryl Gerber


Who is your favorite designer? Malene Birger: She’s sophisticated and universal, while offering fun and flirty everyday pieces.

Whose dress did you like at The Oscars? Halle Berry’s; I like a sleeve with a deep plunge for an unexpected look.

Who would you most like to dress? I had great fun with Blake Lively; she’s open to mixing classic looks with fun, edgier pieces.

Do you think New Orleans is stylish? Yes! It’s such a unique, European-inspired city with such a lot of history and creativity, that it inspires women to develop a unique style and to have fun with clothes.

Give us one piece of fashion advice? Throw out those yellowing clothes – you can’t save them and any scuffed up shoes too, no matter who the designer is or how fabulous they once were!

How do you make your buying decisions? We make sure we offer a collection of beautiful pieces from classics to funky, that is as good or better than any you can find in any city, anywhere.  

Why do you do what you do? I love my customers to have wonderful things to wear to every occasion in the knowledge they won’t look like anyone else.
