Womenswear designer Lisa Hackwith is the founder of Hackwith Design House
, American-made ready-to-wear and swimwear collections produced by hand with a team of seamstresses in her Minneapolis design studio. The brand launches a new limited-edition line of pieces every Monday in addition to the company’s seasonal collections, which feature easy, minimal, affordable basics. What started as an Etsy
shop several years ago has blossomed into a robust womenswear business. Flowy twill kimono jackets, wide-leg jumpers, blousy tops, gauzy tunic dresses, and tapered pants are flattering fan favorites.
We chatted with Hackwith about her design business, love of Minneapolis, and her other favorite local brands.
