Wes Gordon may not be a household name yet, but the Chicago-born designer made waves with the sequin herringbone blazer that Michelle Obama wore to the Kids' Choice Awards last year. Yep, that stunner was designed by none other than Wes Gordon. We've since checked out the rest of his collections, and his pieces are to die for.
If you're hoping to meet the man of the hour to discuss his newest collection inspired by the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, then you're going to want to trek northward to Winnetka's greatest meccas of style, neapolitan. He will be there on March 12 for a personal appearance, but the trunk show of his Fall 2013 line runs from March 8-12. Expect lots of texture and glamour with a rock 'n' roll vibe. To make an appointment for the event, call neapolitan at 847.441.7784.
