Marti Jonjak—The Stranger’s fashion columnist—has a technical degree in apparel design and works in the garment industry. Her treasured casual-wear aesthetic is both glamorous and trashy, suggesting she’s just emerged from a Camaro, and she draws inspiration from gas-station gift stores and motel bedspreads. She once spent an entire summer sewing maternity bras. Also, she’s been writing The Happiest Hour column since before you were born.
