What a group!

Since UPS doesn't arrive on Sunday, we thought we would give you the best of the best...Meet the new faces at Panache, 2 whole weeks now!

Alana Galvin

I recently graduated from Eastern Michigan University, Michigan, with a degree in apparel, textiles and merchandising. After graduation and several years of working in retail, I was uncertain of what I wanted to do with the next chapter of my life. Luckily, I have been blessed with an amazing family who has supported and encouraged me with my recent move to Chicago, a City that I have traveled to since I was a child and have always thought it would be a great place to live and work.

I have always loved helping people put together the perfect ensemble. Since I can remember I have been spending time in my mother's closet putting together outfits. I am interested in many different aspects of fashion; I am a creative person and often engage in creative outlets, whether it is music, drawing, or simply assembling an outfit. Although the path forward isn't totally clear, I am confident that it will unfold as it should. I am so excited about my future at Panache, and all the people I will meet and help build the perfect ensemble.


Lauren was born and raised in Chicago. She grew up surrounded by musical artists, but her passion has always been in the visual arts, more specifically: Fashion.

Lauren spent her undergraduate career studying Fashion Merchandising and Design and earned a minor in Business Administration. With this being said, she has spent her college career studying both the creative aspects of design as well as the fundamental structure of the business world.

Lauren spends her time drawing, sewing, and creating visionary ready to wear styles. “I love all things fashion, and I aim to further engage myself within the industry.”

At Panache, I have been able to express my love for merchandising. It is something that is not only enhances my creativity, but is also very enjoyable. A hobby of mine while working is playing with accessories within the store and finding new and interesting ways to wear them. I am very happy to be working in such a great environment with very caring and professional individuals.

We are looking so forward to meeting all the Panache customers. We have heard so much about all of you!
