Fashion Friday: Wiksten… Jenny Gordy in Iowa

One of my favorite designers to follow is Jenny Gordy out of Iowa City by way of New York. I first read about her blog years ago around 2006 in Lucky Magazine and tore it out to look at later.  A year ago my friend Kate told me to look at her sibling’s friend’s website, Wiksten, and lo and behold, it’s the same person. Jenny studied at F.I.T. in New York, and creates clothing, patterns, and knits out of her home studio in Iowa City.  Her patterns are classic silhouettes that work on many body types, and her products are carefully crafted with quality construction.  She also has beautiful photos on her blog. Some of my favorites:
