Liberte boutique brings international fashion to Oklahoma City
The store in the Classen Curve shopping center showcases up and coming designers from around the world.
Through her defense contracting work, Danielle Keogh has traveled the world. And along the way, she shopped, falling in love with exotic clothing in South America and trendy designs in Europe.
Retailers here didn't carry the brands she craved, which include Herve Leger, Robin Brouillette and Issa — one of Kate Middleton's favorite designers — so she decided to dive into the retail business.
Her shop, Liberte, opens Friday in the Classen Curve shopping center.
Gorgeous silk dresses mingle with luxe cashmere sweaters and designer denim inside the unique boutique, which carries business clothing, formal wear, cocktail dresses, designer denim and accessories. Keogh said she wants to showcase emerging designers and brands not available elsewhere in Oklahoma.
Features inside the store include clear acrylic shelves and a stunning center chandelier made with 15,000 crystal beads. Interior designer Anh Weber, with HSE Architects, said Keogh wanted the store to be modern yet feminine.
A round center bench invites shoppers to sit back and relax and the clear shelves add ambience as well as a level of security. Dressing rooms have modern, white glass doors and domed lights with a pretty pattern inside.
Keogh, who owns the Edmond-based defense firm Erys, said she believes clothing is an investment and should be beautiful, comfortable and flawlessly transition from day to evening.
“You should be able to have clothes 10 years or more,” she said.
