Chicago, IL, October 4, 2016 – MODIQUE LLC

Modique, an online women’s apparel company, announces the launch of its inaugural dress line. Founded by Chalise Southwick in 2013, Modique has produced seven unique and classy dress designs for its Summer/Fall 2016 line that are sold exclusively through its website,

Modique’s asthetic is timeless and sophisticated, with high fashion and modesty being left uncompromised. The dresses appeal to women needing comfortable business casual wear, Sunday best, or a nice piece for a special occasion. Bridesmaids and nursing mothers are also a focus group of Modique’s designs.

Based in the suburbs of Chicago, Modique does short-run productions and has partnered with a local manufacturer near downtown Chicago for the cutting and sewing of all pieces. “Being a new and relatively small online boutique, the most important thing to me right now is quality,” Southwick said. “As the only designer, I am able to pay close attention to detail.” Southwick said one of the main reasons she chose to produce in the U.S. at a local manufacturer is so that she can work closely with them and maintain her high standards for Modique.

Southwick was a seamstress at an early age, sewing everything from doll clothes to prom dresses. More recently, she studied fashion design at Salt Lake Community College and was featured as an emerging designer for Shabby Apple, a women’s apparel company. Over her career, she has designed and sewn more than 30 styles for herself and friends. “My hope is that every woman who receives a Modique dress will feel like they are getting a custom dress made by a close friend,” Southwick said. “They will know the hard work that has gone into each dress and feel like a million bucks wearing it!”
