News & Observer Spring Style 2006

Relocating to the Triangle from Atlanta, I was more than a bit concerned that the fashion division of my business could suffer without the same level of retail resources available to draw from.  I found quite the contrary; with the recent trend of hip, young, business-savvy sophisticates introducing their own interpretive sense of style into the Triangle's prospering retail community, this fashion scene is quickly heating up. Just as eager to encourage this momentum, the Triangle's traditional merchants, mentors to more than a few of these emerging trendsetting business owners, are updating their own inventories with new labels to attract a broader clientele.  With upscale national retailers now locating to our area and their own highly skilled fashion consultants ready to assist the most particular styles and tastes, why shop any further than our own backyard?

I encourage each of you to venture into these chic new boutiques, revitalized retail shops and upscale department stores, and enjoy the experience.  And when you're ready for some real retail therapy and a whole lot of fun, please give me a ring or drop me an e-mail.

In this latest edition of Spring Style, we are pleased to present our highlights of this season's impressive selection of fashion trends in the Triangle.

Once again, I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to my friends at the N&O, our wonderful retail community, and my loyal clients, both old and new, who provide me the opportunity to succeed in a career that I find so rewarding and enjoyable.
