Fetish finds home in Hyde Park

Rachel Clark believes women are passionate about their clothes and accessories - especially shoes - so when it came to naming her new store in Hyde Park, Fetish seemed appropriate.

The 1,800-square-foot shop, which opened Sept. 6 at 3425 Erie Ave., has clothes, accessories, and is still getting in more shoes in preparation for the Oct. 11 grand opening.

"We have two storefronts. The 800-square foot side is open now and the second side with more clothes and shoes will open in a few days," says Clark.

Look for shoes from Anne Klein, BCBG Girls, BCBG, Joan and David and Martinez Valero.

Creations by local artists are showcased at the store, as well, with cigar box purses by Amy Friedman; straw, silk and wicker bags by Meghan Dolle, and bracelets and chokers by Kip Vota.
