Just like every actor wants to direct, many models dream of getting behind the sewing machine. Case in point: Florida native Abigail Lorick, a beauty who worked the catwalks and editorial circuits of Paris and Milan before enrolling at FIT to realize her own fashion vision. Her European influences and big-time attention to detail are the backbone of her super-chic, structural dresses, jackets and separates. With a subdued palette done mostly in solids, Lorick's expert pleating, draping and form-fitting tailoring make each piece feel not quite retro but certainly from another time.
