After opening River Oaks’ Casa de Novia bridal boutique in 2005, fashion-savvy entrepreneur Luvi Wheelock expanded her fashion stake with Atrium—a ready-to-wear outpost just next door. The sleek, Gallery-like shop celebrated its launch in April 2011, offering cocktail gowns and evening frocks from a mix of well-known and rising-star designers.
One-of-a-kind, eye-catching designs by Prabal Gurung, Palazzo and Angel Sanchez share space with Christian Cota, Trias and Yigal Azrouel. Even better, fans don’t have to worry about running into their fashion doppelganger at a social event, either, since Atrium stocks a limited number of each design, allowing the piece to be tailored to each customer’s body.
The shop—which is adjacent to Casa de Novia—is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
