Hello dolls! Today I am happy to introduce you to a talented Chicago designer, fellow rock n roll spirit, and new friend of mine: Heidi Hess. Heidi and I connected through Instagram and shortly after planned a date to meet up in her studio so that I could check out her collection. I had a great time with Heidi trying on her designs, listening to music, and sharing our love for classic rock. We even bonded over Miss Pamela! Heidi told me she used to work in radio, which to me made perfect sense since it was clear that music influenced her style. I asked Heidi where she draws inspiration from when designing and I loved her answer: Everything everywhere I go. I can see things from miles away and get inspired and sometimes even dream inspiration. Heidi’s love for fashion started at a very young age when she’d dress herself for school. She said she has always been fascinated with knits, though. She stated, “Heidi Hess Designs was born out of a love for knits/ fashion but turned into my life’s passion and driving force. I really loved seeing all of her pieces in person; everything was so beautifully made. I thought it was cool that for her Mesh Me Up collection, Heidi makes her own fabric in L.A. out of two kinds of yarn! My favorite piece, though, had to be the super flares that she gifted to me in a really versatile denim. I can’t wait to wear them in so many ways! Speaking of versatility— Heidi designed the Hoodie Ponch which, essentially, is a classic poncho with an added hood for style and function! Perfect for saving your hair from the rain or wind, or just adding that extra element to your outfit. It looks sooo cute belted, especially, and super 60s beatnik - cool. I already know it’s going to become a favorite travel look for me! Check out the full campaign I did with Heidi Hess Designs to see my other favorite pieces and how I style them.
