Fashion Fun at the Foundry

Featuring Fashions from Abigail's Apparel

St. Charles County Lifestyle's fashion feature takes place at various art studios at The Foundry Art Centre in Historic Saint Charles. Hair and makeup was provided by The Cherry Blow Dry Bar at Streets of St. Charles. The models, along with the clothing and accessories, were provided by Abigail’s Apparel, at 124 South Main St. 

Abigail’s carries something for everyone and creates a pleasurable shopping experience—from the fun '40s-era music to the unique items of clothing, handbags and accessories. The customer service is by far the cherry on top of the sundae.

“We pride ourselves in carrying fashion that you won’t find at the big box stores, and we are here to cater to your needs,” says owner Beth Mohr.

“Abigail’s even has some items for the man in your life, including sandals, socks, sunglasses and fragrance.”

There is always something new to find as you wander through this gem of a shop and see something different each time. Beth has created a unique destination boutique on Historic Main Street. She travels the country looking for the trendiest fashions at the most affordable prices for her customers. Don’t wait, though, for many items on the shelves are so unique that once they’re sold, they’re gone.

It’s been eight years, and Abigail’s Apparel is going strong! If you haven’t been there yet, stop by. “We look forward to helping you with your fashion choices,” Beth says.

The mission of the Foundry Art Centre is to connect people with the arts through exhibitions, performances, education and studio artists. The artists’ studios at the Foundry have open glass fronts on the mezzanine level of the building, allowing visitors to see artists at work and interact with them as they create. A variety of media are represented by these juried studio artists. 

The studios we photographed the models for this fashion feature included Botanicals By Nature, where artist Jody Williams holds drawing and painting botanical art classes. See BotanicalByNature.com for her work and more information. 

The cover photo was shot at the studio of Ann D. Croghan, who creates and teaches watercolor, oil, acrylic and drawing. To register for classes, email A.Croghan@sbcglobal.net.

We also used as backdrops the artwork of Lisa Hinrichs at her studio, where she uses wool felt to create her art. The layers of silk and wool, ink and stitch result in unique textures and colors. See her website at LisaHinrichs.com.

Finally, the hand-crafted baskets at the studio of Expedition Subsahara are beautiful and inspiring and are a must-see at the Foundry Art Centre. You can also see her work at ExpeditionSubsarhara.com.
