Inside the oldest commercial building on South Congress, Blackmail Boutique breathes gothic life into the 120 year-old structure. Blackmail is owned and operated by Gail Chovan, who designs her namesake line in an atelier studio also located within the SoCo building. Along with her own work, the merchandise is carefully curated in the vein of "noir danger." The store's products are mostly a monochromatic black, playing with the idea of how diverse and elegant a store can be that only focuses on one color. Blackmail is more than just a clothing store, it could also be considered a gallery where Chovan exhibits her masterpieces. The only difference is that you can wear these art pieces home.
