It’s been a big year for Amy Kirchen. She made her big debut at last year’s Cincinnati Fashion Week, and she’s been trailblazing ever since.
Now, with three collections under her belt and a booming custom couture dress business (not to mention being a loving mom and doting wife), she decided to take on a new adventure: opening a boutique.
But she didn’t want to open just any ol’ boutique. She wanted it to be different from all the others, with price being the paramount distinction. Her prices range from $30-$250, so everyone can find something that fits their budget. "I want people to be surprised when they walk in, find something fabulous, look at the price tag and realize it’s actually affordable," says Kirchen.
She carries lines such as GLAM, BLACK, RYU, ELLISON and her own AMY KIRCHEN lines. She gets in new styles weekly, so the floor is always fresh.
"I am excited to make the latest fashion trends from all over the world accessible to Cincinnati," says Kirchen. "The boutique is also home to my own lines and an excellent platform to offer my custom couture wear as well. I am so excited and honored to dress the amazing women of Cincinnati!
She’s careful to not over-order, too, so you’ll never have the dreaded "same outfit" situation at a cocktail party. Kirchen typically only carries two smalls, two mediums and two larges in any piece. She can custom-make any sizes outside of that range. Kirchen also offers custom tailoring to garments purchased from the store and garments not purchased from her store
Kirchen chose Milford because she says it’s the perfect addition to the growing community of shops and restaurants on Main Street. "Not only is there an excellent wine bar, Italian restaurant and delicious cupcakery, there is also a gourmet coffee shop, local choclatier and so many more amazing shops," says Kirchen. "You can truly spend an entire day in Milford and find just about everything you need!"
