This week, one budding Chicago Designer, fresh out of the Fashion Incubator packed her wardrobe, boarded the private jet and embarked on a journey to conquer the limelight in the whirl of bubbly NYFW glamor. Under the platform of EMERGE at NYFW, Taneasha Prunty of label GIDI, has shown her latest collection inspired by the wine country in Napa Valley.

The collection walks a line sophistication and sweetness. Flowing shapes in commanding color using rich jewelry elements from Nicole Harry of Nicole Designs All and Shelly Patoff-Becker & Molly Patoff have created a look that relaxed effortless and elegant. This collection is Taneasha's first wholesale collection and has made arrangements with a few niche boutiques around New York and Chicago to stock the collection.
