When I first moved to NYC to begin my somewhat short-lived and oh so miserable retail career, I worked at what was then considered to be one of the most exclusive and expensive stores in the world. Bijan was a Fifth Avenue, appointment-only boutique and it wasn't unusual for a Sheikh or Prince of some Arab country to arrive and drop hundreds of thousands in one visit. Needless to say that when they insisted on training me in how to serve tea "the customary way" my designer boutique career ended.
Bijon the designer has since passed but his boutique remains open by appointment only on Rodeo Drive and thus, doesn't appear on this list but...whether you are one of the proprietary data collected from 20 million and holders or, just dream of shopping till you drop...tons of $$$ that is...in one of the most pricey boutiques you can find in the 50 states of America, here is the list but before you scroll down, can you guess #1?
I was surprised!
