inspires and motivates. Her delicate, ethereal designs show off elegance in locally produced fashion. We caught up with Elise this spring to take a peek at her new collection, a.k.a. our dream wardrobe. Click through for her spring collection, inspired by '70s fabrics and nautical themes. We're also spotting a touch of old Americana in there, too, and we asked Elise about it. "All the red, white, and blue might be a result of all the folk music I've been playing and listening to." We love seeing how Chicago designers move through the creative process. We were even lucky enough to snag a photo of Elise's inspiration board for spring. Scope out your favorite styles, then head straight to Roslyn in Bucktown to grab them before anyone else.
