Wellington, FL – Fashion and art go hand in hand, especially at ShowChic, an upscale dressage fashion boutique located in Wellington, Florida. ShowChic is the ultimate destination for dressage riders who want the height of fashion, the latest colors and the perfect coordinates for their ensembles – turning dressage riders into true works of art. Art can also be found on the walls of ShowChic, painted by Michele Hundt, owner of ShowChic and the boutique’s resident artist. “I combine my fashion background with my artistic ability to make ShowChic a unique boutique,” Hundt said. Hundt’s work is displayed on the walls of ShowChic, and the bright bold colors and abstract shapes – which Hundt said describe the beauty and motion of the horse – makes ShowChic a true Wellington shopping destination.
Hundt expresses her artistic gift through original abstract paintings, figure paintings and equine artwork. Hundt said she enjoys the intensity of large-scale artwork and works in large dimensions. “My art reflects the many years of riding and watching how the horse moves,” she said.
“Art is my background. I used to work at a major department store as a fashion art director, so combining my fashion background and artistic ability is a natural fit for me,” Hundt said.
For over 17 years Hundt served as a Designer and Artistic Director at various companies in the Midwest. A graduate of the Cooper School of Art in Cleveland, Hundt also studied Drawing at the Cleveland Museum of Art and Figure Drawing at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Her work has appeared in the Mulry Fine Art Gallery in Palm Beach, Florida and the Artists Haven Gallery in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Hundt’s colorful equine artwork hangs on the walls in many equestrian’s homes, and can be found a striking note cards in the store, and even on the covers of dressage show prize lists; including a past Palm Beach Derby CDI souvenir prize program cover.
In addition to Hundt’s fabulous art adorning the walls of ShowChic, the boutique carries everything the rider needs to dress for success in the dressage arena, including well-known brands like Kentucky, Cavallo, Arista, Animo, Pikeur, Kinsgland, Back on Track, Samshield, GPA and Charles Owen. ShowChic also has a mobile store, which can be found at shows along the east coast in the summer and on the Florida show circuit in the winter. “Whether you need couture for the show arena or the social scene, ShowChic can help,” Hundt said.
