It may be wet and rainy out, but spring merchandise will start hitting store shelves before we know it. We asked several local designers what they're dreaming about for the new season and what they'll be wearing once the weather warms up. From Chanel clogs to Kitchen Aid mixers, see what gets these designers' creative juices flowing.
