My name is Meryl Franzos. Once upon a ten + years ago, I was a model and Anna Sui's design assistant in New York City. I could've carved out quite the fashion career for myself. But instead I found myself in Pittsburgh--a post-Industrial town, commonly dismissed for its plethora of steel and proletarian ways. And yet, I have no regrets. Life, love, inspiration and yes, fashion exists here in the rust belt.
