school-house frocks

September 28, 2012

After graduating from Duke University in 2007, Rachel Weeks headed to Sri Lanka as a Fulbright Scholar.

While she was there to research ethical manufacturing initiatives, Weeks started School House, a socially responsible collegiate fashion brand.

In 2011, Weeks brought her company back to North Carolina. Recently, Weeks was honored for her efforts when she made Inc. magazine’s “30 under 30” list of America’s young entrepreneurs.

Based in Durham, School House’s classic yet modern collection appeals to today’s college coeds.There are school spirit tights ($16) and an updated Oxford shirt dress ($130).

But it is the sweaters ($90 to $110) that are fan favorites. So far this fall, the chic cardigan with the shawl collar(above)  is a best seller.

New this fall is the “Bluto Sweater,” inspired by John Belushi’s character in the 1978 movie “Animal House.” The 100 percent cotton letterman sweater (below) features the iconic “COLLEGE” woven across the chest.

School House wear can be found at select campus bookstores and at www.shopschoolhouse.com

P.S.  On Nov. 1, School House debuts a new collection for University of Notre Dame fans.
