Artist Rosaria Pugliese, wearing the Tory tunic here, has two daughters in the fashion industry — Reed Krakoff’s Sales Director Bianca Dueñas (left, in the Izzy jean) and Elle’s Accessories Director Maria Dueñas Jacobs (in the Polina sweater) — so we know that creativity runs in the family. But what else? Find out in our quick-fire with the trio.
First fashion memory?BD: My mom used to dress up my sister and me in matching (but not identical) outfits. We both actually really loved it until about middle school, which is sort of embarrassing. She used to put us in canvas sundresses with matching striped espadrilles one day and denim overalls with construction boots the next. We were lucky.
