Laura Hlavac, a local Minnesota designer creates clothing that flatters any woman’s body, regardless of shape and size. Her fabrics are all soft and stretchy and her designs are slimming through her use of unique embellishments and stitching detail. Her look is often described as “athleisure” for the real woman.
