Ready, Set, Blow: DreamDry Opens in Chicago


DreamDry Chicago


Chicago! DreamDry (904 W. Armitage is here, just in time to make you beautiful for all of your holiday parties or to provide the ultimate in glamorous gifts for that special fashionista on your list.

I had the opportunity to attend DreamDry’s grand opening last week, to tour the salon and to try out the services – all three left me wowed and in a dream-cloud of glamour and hairspray.

DreamDry is truly a haven for the beautiful-hair-obsessed. The gorgeous salon space is set just off the street, and nestled between the various boutiques on Armitage in Lincoln Park. Inside, the surroundings are classic and clean in black and white. Each station is set up with a luxe leather seat for you to get cozy in while you peruse the style menu on your own personal iPad.

Eight students from various schools (Fashion Institute of Technology, Savannah College of Art and Design, Rhode Island School of Design and Pratt Institute) were given the task of designing evening gowns using Supima cotton, America’s luxury cotton grown only in California and the Southwestern U.S. and prized across the world by designers and retailers who value its luster, strength and superior softness.

Using ‘made in the USA’ Supima cotton fabrics — knits, twills, corduroy, denim and shirting — these emerging designers had to find ways to craft Pima cotton into formal attire. The panel of judges included industry heavy hitters Buxton Midyette of Supima, Tadashi Shoji, Cindy Weber-Cleary of InStyle, Alexandra Wilkis Wilson of Gilt Groupe and Aslaug Magnusdottir of Moda Operandi.
