(ST. LOUIS, MO) For nearly a year, a local business owner has embarked on a mission to revolutionize the way St. Louisans think and feel about shopping for clothes.


“This is a place where when you walk in it doesn’t matter who you are, where you are from, or where you went you went to high school,” said Lia Glynias, owner of LAUNCH, the newest clothing boutique at Skif Int'l in the Hill neighborhood.


LAUNCH, which will be celebrating its one year anniversary in June, thrives in being a place where shopping for clothes should come with no pressure, and a lot of fun.


“LAUNCH is open – inclusive,” explains Glynias. “I am thinking about the woman who came in the other day and later told me, ‘I’ve never had so much fun or tried on so many pieces of clothing at a store before.’”

To celebrate the store’s first anniversary, Glynias is throwing a “One Year & Counting” party from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 8, where she hopes both new and loyal customers will join her in celebrating the inclusivity and enjoyment of fashion

About the owner:

Glynias returned to St. Louis in late 2015 after more than a decade in New York City working with dozens of domestic & international designer clothing and jewelry brands and 1200 retailers across the US during her tenure at GAP, Roni Rabl, & Bombshell Accessories. 


After encouragement from Nina Ganci, the Designer & force behind the Skif Int’l made in St. Louis Fashion Label, Glynias took over the north-west corner of retail space in the Skif building at the intersection of Daggett and Marconi, bringing in clothing from Israel, Europe, New York City and featuring some of her own hand-made jewelry.
