It’s always a thrill to stumble upon a new local designer who sets my Spidey sense off and Lu. by Jenny Fort has done it. Her Line No. 1 collection, currently looking for funding on Kickstarter is a two of my favorite things: chic and unique. Silhouettes are nontraditional, unless drop crotch MC Hammer pants are your standard, and will fit a range of personal styles and body shapes. Fabrics range from soft wool to easy wear Ponte knit and each garment is lovingly made in Seattle.
I’m particularly taken by the maxi-dress because I like pieces that speak for themselves and are quick to throw on in the morning and still look and feel like I’ve put a ton of thought into my outfit.
Fort is hosting a trunk show on November 7, details here. I'm super eager to check this line out in person.
