DU in Details Magazine

26 Mar

We’re super stoked on being included in a great story about the “Rust Belt” in the April issue of Details Magazine.  In addition to reading about what DU and other creatives/entrepreneurs are up to in the Midwest, you can also find out if “anal sex is the new deal breaker”.  Inquiring minds want to know!

field trip: we visit our factory in Chicago

26 Mar

This past weekend, we took a little trip out to Chicago to visit our factory.  It is where our DU private label is produced.  Sean has been working with this factory for years and years, with Wrath Arcane, and has spent much time there, but I have never yet had the chance to see where ‘the magic happens!”.

It was pretty cool to see where and how it all comes together.  This is Sean’s profession, but I don’t know much about it, so I am glad I finally got to do this.



Project MOCA event winning garment at DU

23 Mar

Sean and Dana from DU recently judged Project MOCA and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland. The winning look was designed by Deanna Turcotte, and is being featured in the front window of the Dredgers Union for the next two weeks.  Below are some images of Deanna’s look as well as images from the event.

PS…  Those are actual beetle wings on the shoulders, and hand dyed ties make up the skirt.

red jeggings study

18 Mar
4 items found at Dredgers Union right now:
the floral Keds (again, I own and love)
the red and white stripe Parisian chic  top (just got in, likely will own!)
I took 2 of the items, the RED JEGGING & TUNIC, and paired them with items found both at DU and at other stores, to play around with options and directions one could take these two basic items…really, I was so inspired I believe I will do several ‘studies’ of these items.  It was a lot of fun playing on polyvore, and I guess it’s just yet another social media tool that I will lose years of my life to…
check back for more studies on the red pants!
