Over the weekend I stopped by a trunk show at Muléh, a DC lifestyle boutique that sells furniture and women's clothing, including brands like 3.1 Philip Lim and MM6 Martin Margiela. The show was Lizzie Fortunato Jewels, run by twin sisters Lizzie and Kathryn Fortnato. Lizzie is the designer, and her sister runs the business end - it's left brain / right brain in action!!
Isabella Bird. She was an 18th century natural historian who came to America and explored the Rocky Mountains on horseback. "I love this idea of this independent woman who was a little bit defiant - she refused to ride side saddle as women then were supposed to," says Lizzie. That defiant pioneer woman and "natural, really organic influences" were what shaped this beautiful collection!"
