by Daniel Saponaro

The Hutch girl knows what she wants, and she knows how to get it. She knows how to dress for every occasion, and she owns the perfect shade of red lipstick. She might be sweet as sugar but she can be tough as nails. She fills her closet with dresses that are fun but ageless, feminine but versatile. She opts for timelessness over trendy,as a rule, and she never underestimates the power of a high heel.

Quick Bio
For ten years, before launching Hutch, Daniel resided at luxury evening and contemporary companies alike, designing for Heidi Weisel, Samantha Treacy, Isaac Mizrahi and Thread Social, among others.

A native New Yorker and a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and the Instituto Polimoda in Florence, Italy. Daniel lives in Brooklyn with his partner Kyle and their long-haired Dachshunds, Rusty and Moxley.
Hutch is the delightful result of Daniel Saponaro’s realization that what women really want–no, need– in their closet are easy, feminine pieces that are flattering, timeless and versatile. And so, with the hope of giving girls just that, Daniel launched Hutch in late 2010. Sold in over 125 stores across the country and recently profiled by WWD and seen in People Stylewatch, and InStyle Magazine, Hutch is well poised to become a girl’s go-to for fun and fresh dresses and separates.

Urban-wear for men

Quick Bio
Jeremy Pinne, a self-taught designer, grew up in the town of Champaign, Illinois. Growing up, he has always been a creative individual with an eye for detail. When he would attend parties and other events, he never wanted to be seen wearing the same outfit as anyone else nor be seen wearing the same garment twice. So he decided the best way to prevent this from happening would be to design his own clothing. After constructing a few garments, his designs were beginning to be noticed.

Jeremy became a trendsetter in his community. This recognition led to Jeremy’s talents being commissioned to create costumes and garments for private clients around Champaign. Since his relocation to Florida, Jeremy has launched his line Xempt, which debuted in the
2010 Creative Ambitions fashion show. His inspiration is derived from things that he himself would want to wear.
