A fashion writer's knit dress puts empowerment at the forefront
Fashion writer Lauren Fern was flitting around during a release party for Giorgio Armani's new self-titled autobiography in the designer's Oak Street store. Fern stood out, largely due to her knit dress by Gudrun & Gudrun,
a brand based in the Faroe Islands whose collections are handmade by
women in Jordan and Peru as part of the company's women's empowerment
projects. The womenswear expert for the Chicago Chic
lifestyle website, Fern sees fashion as "an analytical art form" and an
attitude rather than a reflection of "the size of your pocketbook".
Getting dressed is about "feeling like yourself and leaving room to step
outside of your comfort zone from time to time." See her gracefully
doing just that on Instagram at @unfabulous_elle.
