December 31, 2014 - Comments Off on Event: Join Us for ‘Stories & Style’ at Bene Rialto on January 29th
Mark your calendars—you won't want to miss Stories & Style. Every piece of clothing and style comes with a story, whether it's something that happened while you were wearing it or the very inspiration behind the design. At Bene Rialto on Thursday, January 29th, we're joining forces with three storytellers to bring you a night of entertainment and fashion.
Come hear NPR's Ophira Eisenberg, Writer/Comedian Elna Baker, and Author/Comedian Sara Benincasa recount fashion-focused tales—we guarantee you won't leave without having a laugh. You'll also be able to meet the designer and try on pieces from the Nicole Lenzen ready-to-wear collection, browse the other apparel and accessory brands featured throughout Bene Rialto's multilevel retail marketplace, and snack on some yummy appetizers and wine.
An RSVP will be required to enter, so get your name on the list for this free event quickly!
