Ikram Overview:

Ikram, which is owned by Ikram Goldman, sits in the tony gold coast shopping area, just up from the Lamborghini dealer.

It carries high-end women's fashions and accessories by designers from around the world, and Goldman even adds some hand-picked vintage items to the mix.

The store is favored by Michelle Obama, but Goldman usually remains quiet on the subject. Ikram is one of Obama's key fashion advisors.

Quotes about Ikram Goldman:

"(Ikram) has been a dear friend for many years, continues to be someone who I admire and someone who I think has a very good eye in regards to fashion and style. And she knows my style very well . . . She has said to me, do not let Washington change your style. . . You should not feel like you have to dress differently in this city."

--Desiree Rogers, White House Social Secretary and former Chicagoan quoted in the Chicago Tribune on March 15, 2009
