High Fashion At The Factory: The BerkChique! Preview Party
Amy Krzanik reports from Dalton. In the immortal words of David Bowie, “Fashion! Turn to the left. Fashion! Turn to the right. Oooh, fashion!” To the left we had BerkChique! event chair Vicki Bonnington’s hand-curated couture in a wide range of styles, sizes and price points. To the right, was another roomful of reasonably priced men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, bags and belts to pour over. Those who attended the BerkChique! preview party on Friday, June 5 at The Stationery Factory got first dibs on all of the above, plus hors d’oeuvres courtesy of The Red Lion Inn (a founding sponsor), beer and wine from Kelly’s Package Store and goodie bags stuffed with freebies from Blue Q, Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Mighty Brittle and Radiance Yoga. The Berkshires’ most popular used clothing sale continued through the weekend, with a portion of sales donated to Community Access to the Arts, IS183 Art School, Shakespeare & Company and WAM Theatre, and unsold items going to local non-profits, including Goodwill Industries and its Berkshire County Suit YourSelf program. Above, fashion guru Vicki Bonnington beautifully reigns over her fashion kingdom.
