Doser: Frei Designs

Founder: Annie Novotny

Workin’ it: In addition to teaching ¬†young designers at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and designing her own line, the South Side Chicago native owned a Chicago-centric storefront-meets-studio-space, Workshop, in Pilsen. Phase two: After shuttering the shop, she’s joining forces with Angela Finney-Hoffman to sell her wares and work out of Finney-Hoffman’s fabulous vintage furniture and housewares shop, Post 27.

Products: Sustainable and organic women’s clothing and jewelry. Designs are made with organic cottons, natural dyes and locally manufactured textiles.

Why we love her: Frei makes feeling comfortable and looking good easy.
