Originally from Boise, Idaho, Luke migrated to New England at 17 to attend Tufts University. Located in the city’s oldest residential quarter, the North End, the pre-industrial storefront serves as a showroom for gowns, dresses, and separates. An avid history buff, Luke draws inspiration from Boston’s mythological connections to early America; from the stately elegance of Beacon Hill to the Seaport’s weathered utilitarianism. lukeaaronboston.com
Born and raised in India, Avni’s designer, Avni Trivedi, spent her formative years immersed in the rich history, vibrant fashion, and beautiful art of Indian culture. Now calling Boston home, Trivedi blends her Eastern heritage with her Western urban aesthetic to create a contemporary cultural connection for women. Each collection is marked by the designer’s signature elegant, wearable silhouettes crafted from unique, luscious fabrics that are all hand-made by artisans in the small villages of India. avnifashion.com
