It’s hard to know which moment proved most meaningful for Chicago retailer Ikram Goldman recently.
Was it winning the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Legend of Fashion Award during which designers Jason Wu, Kate and Laura Mulleavy and Irini Arakas, and T editor Sally Singer came to pay their regards?
