Squasht designer Lesley Timpe was trained at Maestro Mateo Design School in Spain and brings a subtly sophisticated European vibe to her seasonal collection of dresses, skirts, tops, tunics, headbands, and reversible hats. The signature pieces of the Squasht collections continue to be endlessly wearable vintage-modern dresses and retro-styled reversible handmade hats.
After being in business for many years and being carried in more than 30 boutiques nationwide, Lesley opened a brick-and-mortar storefront in the Ukranian Village of Chicago in May 2010. In addition to the Squasht collections, Squasht Boutique also carries the handiwork of many other independent designers from both near and far.
