In this Designer Dress Series, we have made a dress for a specific woman. A woman with a story. We will have the pleasure of listening to Lorelei Colbert, a breast cancer survivor, speak to us about her story amongst the beautiful gardens of Village Pine Venue.

Lorelei Colbert was diagnosed in 2020 with triple negative breast cancer at the age of 28. Today, she shares her experience and projects to empower others to control what you can, be your own advocate, SURVIVRE and spread kindness along the way.

What is the Designer Dress Series? A collaborative effort by two women, Kim and Andrea, who share the same creative passion for fashion and design. A dress with a purpose. To be seen. To be shared. Handmade with love. And truly, one of a kind. Be inspired. Be beautifully YOU!

As an owner of a boutique, my dreams came true when Andrea Jones, a local sewist, agreed to brainstorm with me, design and make a beautiful dress. And then the Designer Dress Series was born. 

At this event, we will unveil our third dress in the series, but with a twist. And we can't wait to have our first two dresses make a reappearance.

Join us!
