Local boutique celebrates unique artists

Fra Angelica, Cleveland, Ohio boutique
Fra Angelica Studio is more than a boutique - it's a showcase for wearable pieces of art. Owner Linda Damiani opened shop with the intention of selling knitwear she created and has grown it to represent the work of more than 60 independent artists. Damiani was kind enough to take the time from her busy schedule running her store to answer some questions about entrepreneurship, working in the fashion industry in Cleveland, and her favorite style advice.
