Pumpkin Maternity

Rocker-turned-designer Pumpkin Wentzel is often cited in the media as the leader of a fashion revolution.

She founded Pumpkin Maternity in 1997 with husband and former bandmate Charlie Gansa. What inspired them to put down their guitars? "I wanted women to have a resource where they could feel absolutely beautiful and normal, that didn't feel patronizing or cutesy. So that's what I try to be. I offer clothes, beauty items, books and accessories that I have test driven myself while pregnant."

Wentzel also hosts parenting-pertinent events in her SoHo store in New York City-- family concerts, book release parties and fashion shows. "Just talking to another mom-to-be can be very centering," she exclaims.

What's at the center of her radical collection? Her popular UnderBelly line features low-cut bootleg pants, jeans and capris tailored precisely for pregnancy. She's got the perfect black dress that grows with you, thanks to an ingenious shirring construction. She even sells open belly skirts that eliminate layers when and where you need them least! Pretty simple and very cool. I guess that's why Ana Gasteyer, Kate Winslet, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Kate Moss all wear Pumpkin's clothes.

When visiting New York, go on down to 407 Broome Street, NYC and tell them that we sent ya!
