is a Chicago-based independent fashion designer who creates sustainable contemporary clothing inspired by her city's architecture and culture. Her clothes are made from eco-friendly fabrics like organic cotton, hand-loomed bamboo, hemp and vegan silk. Adding to the sustainability factor, most garments can be wrapped or flipped into a completely different look.
We love the variety of party dresses in her fall and holiday 2009 collections - there are many colors, shapes and styles to fit everyone's body type and personal tastes.
