Slifer Designs showroom hosts Nina McLemore trunk show
EDWARDS — The Slifer Designs Edwards showroom is hosting “Three Days for Bright Futures,” a Nina McLemore trunk show benefiting the Bright Future Foundation.
The event kicks off today and runs through Sunday. McLemore will donate 15 percent of purchases and Slifer Designs will donate 5 percent of proceeds for these three days. There will be a kick-off reception with refreshments in the Slifer Designs Edwards showroom today from 3 to 6 p.m.
Bright Future Foundation, a nonprofit based in Avon, empowers individuals and families affected by violence to lead safe, productive lives through prevention services, advocacy, crisis intervention and recovery services.
McLemore designs a well-tailored wardrobe for both professional women and the “community professional” woman who serves on boards, travels and is active in social events. She cuts for all body types, with flattering colors and styles in sizes ranging from 00 to 18. The fabrics are made with natural fibers including cotton from Switzerland, exotic hand-woven silks from India and fine wools and tweeds from Italy and Scotland. Many of the fabrics are also designed by McLemore.
MCLEMORE, SLIFER COLLABORATION
This trunk show continues a collaboration between McLemore and Slifer Designs where the two businesses currently share a space in the Nina McLemore boutique at 183 Gore Creek Drive in Vail Village.
“Beth Slifer and I both believe in giving back to the community,” McLemore said. “I am particularly passionate about promoting economic independence for women and families, and am delighted that Bright Future Foundation will be benefiting from this effort.”
