Name: Dilane Mitchell Hometown: Chicago, IL Moment I discovered fashion: I was 16 and I went to Bloomingdale's in Water Tower place to shop for a junior prom dress. Favorite ELOQUII item:Cut Out Shoulder Sweater Dress
Name: LaNita Humphrey Hometown: Chicago, IL Moment I discovered fashion: When I was 3 and my mother bought me a pair of navy blue corduroy harem pants that were covered in a teddy bear graphic. I refused to wear them because even at that young age I knew they were terrible… She later admitted I was right. Favorite ELOQUII item: I love the Satin Slip Dress. I remember being a kid in the 90’s and idolizing Deon and Cher’s style from Clueless and this dress is the perfect reincarnation of their style.
Name: Calvin Higgins Hometown: Chicago, IL Moment I discovered fashion: When my mother bought me this GUESS denim jeans and jacket set. To have a piece of that collection at that time is when I discovered fashion. Favorite ELOQUII item: The Quinn Blazer in olive is my favorite item because I love the gold buttons with the blue under the collar detail. It’s perfect for the fall and it will be a great piece to have over the years.
Name: Tony Papandrea Hometown: Troy, MI Moment I discovered fashion: Watching endless marathons of America’s Next Top Model on VH1 every Saturday while in high school. Favorite ELOQUII item:The Peplum Cape Jacket because it fits everyone beautifully (and I’m obsessed with any kind of outerwear).
Name: Gillian Jackson Hometown: Phoenix, AZ Moment I discovered fashion: I discovered fashion at 3 years old, when I would reach out and steal clothing tags of fabrics I liked the touch of. Favorite ELOQUII item: My current favorite piece is our Faux Suede Flare sleeve dress! It’s a necessity every woman should have in their closet.
Name: Ashlee Linton Hometown: Chicago, IL Moment I discovered fashion: I discovered fashion when I used to go to Borders after school to read fashion magazines. Favorite ELOQUII item: The Harper Heel bootie because they have a pretty unique print, plus it adds a little glam to anything.
Name: Dani James Hometown: Cochrane Alberta Canada Moment I discovered fashion: AS long as I can remember I have always loved playing make-believe and dressing up in costumes. As a kid, I was very theatrical (still am) I love that a piece of clothing can transform my mood completely! Favorite ELOQUII item: I love the Ruffle Waist Faux Leather Skirt. The length and texture are perfect for a fall day. I love dressing it up with a turtleneck or edging it with a band tee.
Name: Eloise Wilson Hometown: Chicago, IL Moment I discovered fashion: The moment I discovered was fashion was when I was a little girl, admiring how my mom would put pieces of solid colors, prints and patterns together. Giving her my input on her outfit I started to develop my own sense of style. Favorite ELOQUII item: My favorite ELOQUII item is the Wrap Front Dress. I love how it highlights the curves of a woman, making her look and feel beautiful.
Name: Quin Hurlburt Hometown: Orange County, CA Moment I discovered fashion: I first discovered my love for fashion by playing with Barbie’s and Polly Pocket’s. I would spend hours putting on fashion shows with the dolls and later I tried to recreate it with my own wardrobe. Favorite ELOQUII item: My favorite ELOQUII item is the Printed Kimono Top because it’s the perfect piece to transform a basic day look into a fun night time ensemble. It’s definitely a go-to. (The pleated faux leather skirt is a close second).
