UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J., May 28, 2011 – When it comes to reality TV, these days it is hard to get bigger than the Kardashian sisters. People magazine refers to them as, "the Gabors of the new media age" and it's hard not to agree. Their much anticipated Dash boutique in New York City's Soho has opened and is being chronicled on "Kourtney and Kim Take New York,." the third in the series of reality TV shows featuring the Kardashians and airing on the popular E! network.

Also known to be fond of the spotlight, Luminette® Privacy Sheers from Hunter Douglas with soft fabric sheers backed by fabric vanes that rotate for privacy and light control was selected by the Kardashians for the boutique. Luminette sheers are used on three round changing areas and in the "boudoir" area, which includes a makeup room, lending a more feminine and romantic touch to the industrial space.

Pronounced "gorgeous" by Kim, the most famous of the sisters, the product adds softness and filtered light and was "fast, easy and perfect" to use in the store according to the designer Gregory Okshteyn, President of New York's Studios GO, Inc. "Luminette sheers have such a rich, lush, sophisticated look," says Okshteyn, who counts Jay Z among his clients. "They're so 'glam' like Kim and polished looking."

The front of the store is based more on Kourtney's aesthetic according to Okshteyn and has an industrial chic look with raw iron hanging racks, bare hardwood floors and gray walls. "The Luminette sheers provide a luxurious contrast," concludes Okshteyn.

Tune in to E! Sunday nights.
