Hunter Lingle and Jennifer Dixon are the faces and founders of Hunter Dixon, a gorgeous line of women’s clothing based in New York. While Hunter is the principal designer, Jen works on developing their business (as well as modeling their pieces!). Combining their backgrounds in fashion and entrepreneurship, they created Hunter Dixon to design whimsical, flirty, and feminine clothes for women. Their clothes have been seen on everyone from actress Lake Bell to PR powerhouse Alison Brod, and everywhere from the Today Show to the Sex and the City movie.

I’ve been lucky enough to own a few pieces in my own closet, and I can say for sure that they are classics that will last. As their brand rises and grows, Hunter and Jen recently took the time to tell us their obsessions and what inspires them as designers. (more…)
