Taneasha Prunty is the creative heart and soul of Gidi. She specializes in evening gowns that blend vintage sophistication with a modern edge. We wanted to know how Chicago has inspired Taneasha's work. "One word: architecture! Chicago's unique architecture takes you back to a different time and place. I love the exquisite detail in the buildings."
Cettina is a line of ready-to-wear women's fashion, designed by Concetta Cipriano. We wanted to know what kind of mark she hoped to leave on the Chicago fashion community. "I plan to build my business here in Chicago by designing, producing, and selling within the city...I'd like to bring it closer to being recognized around the world as the strong fashion capital I know it can be." We love Cipriano's passion, and we couldn't agree more!
