Featured in N.E.E.T. Magazine!!

Earlier this year, Dedicated Follower of Fashion was contacted by Stephanie J, N.E.E.T Magazine's editor-in-chief. She asked us if we were interested in being guest writers for the March issue of the magazine, and we could not have been more delighted or excited to be a part of it!

The March issue of N.E.E.T. was focused on sustainable, eco-friendly fashion, so the Dedicated girls helped paint a picture of four amazing brands devoted to these standards in design. Our spread in its entirety is called Green Piece.

My first article in the spread starts on page 92. I wrote about Suno, which is a unique new brand based in New York and produced in Kenya. Definitely read the article on your own to learn more about the label's creative director Max Osterweis and what led him to create Suno in the first place. It is quite an interesting story!

By the way, Suno just showed its first collection at New York Fashion Week this season, which pretty much means this brand has ARRIVED in the fashion industry. It was an absolute pleasure corresponding with them and having the opportunity to write this article!

My second article begins on page 128. I interviewed the lovely trio behind Jackson, Johnston & Roe. Based in Brooklyn, this brand encourages its fans/wearers to create sustainable wardrobes through staple pieces. As noted in the article, the label succeeds in this effort by focusing on classic shapes and simple lines. And as a bonus, all designs are produced locally. Three cheers for social responsibility!

Wow, it was such an amazing experience to work with N.E.E.T. for this issue. There is something so wonderful about seeing your name in print!

When you go over to read the issue (because I know you will!!), I am featured on pages 92-107 & 128-138.
