Sure you would love to design and sew a smocked dress for your little girl on the prairie. Just as soon as you’re done churning the artisan goat butter in the garage.
Certain old-fashioned skills are beyond your ken. But for Lorena Lopez, having a daughter brought back memories of the hand-sewn, hand-detailed dresses she wore growing up in Ecuador, so she got to work.
After eight years of designing frocks to sell in local boutiques, Lopez has finally opened a namesake shop stocked with her limited-edition collections of silk, linen, and cotton dresses alongside hard-to-find gems like leather Mary Janes from Spain.
Helping you pioneer a whole new style.
