Zero Dress Code opened its doors 8 years ago in the tropical paradise of The Florida Keys in the heart of Islamorada! It doubled in size back in 2013 with a complete renovation including a new business model with its’ trademarked signature style. In September 2017, The Keys were hit badly by Hurricane Irma. Fortunately, Zero Dress Code survived Irma’s wrath, but sadly many other retailers and local businesses did not do as well. Our community is strong, and we all support each other. Thankfully, a year later, many businesses are back and the community is growing and rebuilding better than ever!
Despite the challenging year, Owner, Suzanne Gleason, opened another specialty boutique in December 2017. “The Dress Code” boutique debuted in the private community of Ocean Reef Club in upper Key Largo where she resides.
No stranger to the retail and fashion world, Suzanne has come full circle after 22 years in retail, starting as a legacy to the former Angelika Clothing Company. Suzanne was the Buyer, Owner and Operator of Angelika, a well-known and highly adored Islamorada boutique from 1996-2003. With a bit of nostalgia, customers may find some similarities in the styles, the look and the feel of the clothing that Suzanne is bringing back from her past experiences with Angelika, but which are also influenced by her roles as Regional Manager for a chain of Boutiques in Charlotte, North Carolina and her career as Manager of Maison Rouge, the former flagship store for Rhonda Shear, a former Playboy Playmate and current HSN (Home Shopping Network) lingerie diva.
