Here at G&F, we’re always scouting for the latest and greatest in all things style—so when we met Alexis Nido-Russo, Founder of Local Eclectic, we knew we had met our match. Alexis is the beauty and brains behind the e-commerce site, which features under-the-radar, independent designers from across the country. Local Eclectic gives the shopper a more intimate look into the designers’ creative process with behind the scenes interviews and photo editorials. And besides discovering fresh talent, Alexis helps pair together like-minded creatives for limited edition collections. The latest inception? Celebrity nail artist Astrowifey and jewelry designer Cities in Dust collaborated on a bad ass bronze ring that accents the nail. That’s why we love Local Eclectic, they bring artists together and let them do what they do best—bringing beautiful things to you from inspiring, honest work.
