designer crush: jennifer chun

There's nothing I love more than having a trusted girlfriend pass along a new designer they've recently become obsessed with, which is why I enjoy sharing my designer crushes here with you! After all, it's all about paying it forward, right? And today's designer crush -- Jennifer Chun -- is a good one.

I've stalked Jennifer's work from afar for the past few months, so you can imagine my delight when I received a personal invitation to her showroom while I was in town for NYFW. While there was inevitably plenty of dress up to be had (can you blame me when the lookbooks are styled as eye catching as this?), I also loved chatting with Jennifer and picked her brain about how she got started working with Derek Lam and Brian Reyes, what really goes into designing prints from scratch and our common love for turtlenecks as the unsung styling heroes of any wardrobe. I've gathered just a few of my favorite outfits here from both her fall and spring collections and am beyond obsessed with the leather apron on the right in the third row. I know. A leather apron. Quirky, unexpected and yet, so darn cool. Which pretty much sums up why I love her work. 

Jennifer, on behalf of San Francisco, please bring your pieces out west! I, for one, would be one happy shopper if you did. 

This post was brought to you by the Conrad New York, who asked me to share a highlight from my fashion week trip. Meeting Jennifer was certainly a highlight and I hope we can meet again sometime soon!
