Smashing Darling: Featured Independent, Kate Boggiano

We know you will oooh and ahhh over these blouses and jackets by Chicago based designer Kate Boggiano, just like all of us Darlings do. Whether you are heading to the office, or out the door to a party her designs are just the right amount of sass and function, made with high quality materials, in the USA, and built to last. "When you buy a Kate Boggiano blouse, you are buying an item of clothing that will be a part of your wardrobe for years to come."

Kate Coxworth left Polo Ralph Lauren in NYC and headed home to Chicago, welcomed not only by the familiarity of her hometown, but also to the amazing support for indie/emerging designers in the Chicago fashion community. Mayor Richard Daley aims to help keep young designers in Chicago with the Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy's on State street, which is designed to help 6 emerging Chicago-based designers further launch their careers in fashion.

If you find yourself in Chicago you can find Kate Boggiano's work at the incubator, OR you can always peruse her store on Smashing Darling; even contact her if you like by clicking the contact button inside her online boutique. I'm sure she would love to hear from you.
