i recently received a lovely email from catherine lerer
a fashion student studying at the school of the art institute of chicago

her latest knitwear collection familial fronts
features both hand & machine knits & crochet
as well as hand embroidery
check it out here
where all items are available for purchase

she also happens to work at 1 of my favorite chicago boutiques
where i used pop in during my lunch breaks from here
to happily browse (& feel) some of my favorite designer wares. . .

when i was studying fashion
i remember the art institute as putting on the best
& most inspirational fashion shows in chicago. . .
best of luck to you, catherine !

lovely designs -- thanks for finding the new talent. i studied at the art institute as well in graphic design -- is that where you were? wonderful atmosphere and what an inspirational city. thanks for the links...i miss the days of meandering over lunch into a fantastic little shop. sigh...
