Daytime Drama

5 looks for Michelle Obama

(page 2 of 2)

3  DIETER BENNET
Nationally distributed line by Columbia College grads Dieter Kirkwood and Bennett Cousins

LOOK Fuchsia wool dress with black wool flannel jacket

PHILOSOPHY “We were inspired by artist Edward Gorey, whose sketches embody lightness,” the pair says. “Michelle Obama is a strong, independent woman. We wanted the pieces to reflect that, but not overpower her.”

 

4  ORLANDO ESPINOZA
L.A. transplant with long-standing collection; available at fine stores throughout Chicago area

LOOK Marine-blue matte jersey dress with steel-blue silk charmeuse

PHILOSOPHY “Now that she’s in the White House, we need a refined, modern look,” Espinoza says. “It’s exciting when you see the first lady in looks that you’re not accustomed to.”

 

5  SAM KORI GEORGE
Art Institute grad with appointment-only showroom on Delaware Place

LOOK Cashmere and angora milk-white jacket with full-rise pants

PHILOSOPHY “You see her in dresses and prints and things a lot,” George says. “I wanted something very simple and outstanding.”
