So. we are keeping our eye on 5 top local and national brands we think are going to make a big splash in 2018, check them out!
Have you heard of Shernett Swaby yet? This fashion brand was started by one amazing woman who is originally from Jamaica, grew up in Canada, and now calls Chicago home! She has an insane attention to detail and creates edgy eye-catching designs that make every woman no matter her taste wanting to rock her collections. A pretty cool fun fact about this local designer is that she was a top 5 finalist on Project Runway which gives her major bragging rights! Shop her full collection of vests to tops to dresses and once you pick out favorite pieces Shernett will tailor each piece for you at no additional cost.
Versace X FarFetch.com
Versace exudes elegance and fabulosity and the fact that they are collaborating with one of our favorite shopping sites, FarFetch makes life just a little bit sweeter! This collab is currently featuring select vintage Versace pieces on Farfetch’s website from William Vintage to commemorate the amazing Gianni Versace. If you are a gal that loves some serious color, nostalgia, and iconic fashion then this partnership was made for you! You will find decadent embroidered jackets, structured dresses, along with a few more modest pieces to balance out your wardrobe.
This high-end local yoga brand focused around doing good, looking good, and feeling good is one of our top go-to ways to rock the athleisure style. Joriki stands out as one to watch for us because a percentage of proceeds from sales goes to support their select organizations that fight global poverty. Each piece is inspired by places they are giving back to around the world while also always promoting positivity through every piece! So what is behind the name? Well, “Joriki is the strong, individual power that arises when the mind unifies in Zazen concentration. This unique focus enables instinctive action. The yogi who has developed Joriki is free and in control of herself and her circumstance”. They stand by the hashtag #LookForwardGiveBack and that is exactly what they do!
T3 Hair Tools
You may have seen these pretty picturesque hair styling tools on blogs and Instagram over the past few months and let’s be honest, they are worth a double take! T3 started in the past few years as a startup company out of Los Angeles, California with a focus on “luxury hair tools” and they are certainly following through on that. Their products are not only aesthetically cool, but they are built to save the consumer time and maintain the health of their hair. From curling wands, hair dryers, one pass flat irons, and curling irons they are there to make all of your #hairgoals come true.
This trendy and colorful spa is located here in the city in Wicker Park and we think it’s the perfect place for a winter skin pick-me-up! Owner, Amanda has passion for her brand that includes skincare and body care as well as a sexy makeup line. Her products are made in small batches and made from herbs, fruits, and vegetables because she believes that what’s good for you on the inside is good for you on the outside too! This is where luxury meets comfort, local style!
