MHK in STL Meets: Chrissy Fogerty of Fauxgerty

I had the privilege of meeting with Chrissy Fogerty, founder and designer of Fauxgerty, and chatting with her about her beautiful brand, designs, apartment, and more. I had been a long-time fan of her designs, but meeting the personality behind such a unique brand was a true experience for me. Learning all about the story behind the brand really helped solidify my love for Fauxgerty…I can’t wait to share it with you!

Fauxgerty eschews the typical leather manufacturing process for a more animal-friendly, high-end and enduring option. The band emphasizes symbolism, texture treatments and intricate characteristics. Truly an artistic brand, Fauxgerty pieces are highly meticulous, hand-sewn in New York City, and rich in meaningful details. On the upper right shoulder on the back of each jacket, the collection’s name is debossed in Morse code, a brand signifier authenticating the piece.”

Animal friendly? High end? Enduring?
Could a faux-leather jacket get any better? Sounds like my kind of closet staple piece.

T H E  P R I M A R Y  C O L L E C T I O N :
Featuring premium quality, faux-leather jackets in black, mustard, grey, blue, and red, The Primary Collection has every girl’s wear everywhere jacket.

MHK in Fauxgerty:
I chose to try on and wear the black jacket from this collection because of its classic feel. It looks perfect when thrown over a feminine sundress or added to a pair of roughed-up boyfriend jeans. In fact, Chrissy was kind enough to lend me a black jacket from The Primary Collection to wear to the Spring Soirée with Elle Magazine + Wella Professionals that I re-capped last week! Paired with a lace blouse and pair of relaxed crepe track pants? Perfection. [See pictures here!]
