Retail Therapy: Ooh La La


Ooh La la womenswear. The name that’s been a 17th Avenue staple since 1997 is still today one of Calgary’s top shopping destinations for the absolutely chic.

Offering a compilation of the world’s most irresistible and sought-after designer collections – including Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, Marchesa and The Row, just to name a few – this one-stop-shop for everything luxe is equal parts Parisian chic and Manhattan cool – think compact atelier drenched in light, grouped with polished furnishings.



Looking for that perfect cocktail number to accompany you to a charity ball? Ooh La La has it, and all the stand-out accoutrements to go with it. “Clients come here looking for unique pieces that help them stand out,” says Ooh La La’s sales associate, Kathryn Furlan.

Sophisticated women flock to Ooh La La to stock up on impeccably tailored pieces that exude confidence, glamour and intrigue, including this year’s best-sellers, such as The Row’s perfect Tees, and the season’s hottest constructed chunky knits and moto jackets.

As store owner and fashion stylist Chris Wells (above) points out, fashion is all about personal style. The store’s philosophy is, after all, about ensuring a personal touch for every client who walks through the door.

“Chris personally involves herself with her clients and makes sure that when they leave the store, they’re happy with everything, and that she’s happy with what they’ve purchased,” says Kathryn.

“Every one of her customers are her personal clients,” adds Ooh La La fashion adviser, Lauren Popadiuk. “She’ll help put together whole looks for her clients, and who wouldn’t like that?”

Offering wardrobe consultations and in-house alterations, Ooh La La is certainly at your service.

And who wouldn’t like that?
