Once the player obtains access to Lumiose City for the first time, they'll be able to visit Boutique Couture from the city's Vernal Avenue (South fork, connecting from South Boulevard). Upon entering the store without performing any other actions, the player will be turned away and informed they "aren't stylish enough" and that they should visit more places in Lumiose City before visiting again.
This description is dubious, and doesn't inform the player of what they need to accomplish to gain access. Specifically:
Even beating the game (completing the Pokémon League) fails to allow access, as does modifying the player's look, visiting most shops in all areas of Lumiose City, and performing all hair stylist, PR studio, and associated actions. Completing a set of triple battles in Restaurant Le Wow did set the event flag that allowed access in my copy of Y, but it is not clear if this is the only requirement for access.
So other players may benefit, and so I know how to repeat this process if I obtain a copy of X or the future release of Z, what exact requirements yield access to this store for the first time?
