Samantha Sleeper

Doser: Samantha Sleeper

Founder: Samantha Sleeper

Why we love her: This Chicago-bred designer has made a big name for herself in the fashion world — her designs have graced the pages of international publications and have been worn by some big name celebrities — but her success hasn’t changed her ideals. The doe-eyed Sleeper is dedicated to “conscious making,” using salvaged, reclaimed or re-purposed materials while honoring ethical production practices. Not to mention her couture bridal creations — absolutely divine in every way.

Products: Feminine, romantic women’s wear, with a city twist.
