New Store Opening - New York

No CommentsNovember 8th, 2011 Posted in Nina McLemore Stores

Nina McLemore Inc. announces the opening of its 9th boutique located at 1023 Lexington Avenue
between 73rd and 74th Street in New York City. The boutique opens on Saturday, November 12th
with a special appearance by Nina McLemore, who is the designer and CEO of the company.
Other stores include San Francisco, Seattle, Aspen, Cleveland, Nantucket and Chestertown and
Easton, Maryland.

Nina founded the collection after many years in the apparel and accessories industries to fill
a niche in the women’s apparel industry: designer clothing for executive women, “community
professionals” and women who simply want beautiful clothes that are understated and
elegant. The collection includes luxurious natural fabrics that are expertly crafted primarily in
the U.S. Nina designs with a focus on quality, taste, vivid colors, and attention to detail coupled
with a superb fit. Women who have limited time to shop, travel extensively and are looking
for clothing to serve multiple purposes seek out the collection. Sizes range from 0 to 18. In
essence, the Nina McLemore Collection is about casual elegance, effortless style, exquisite fabric
and at an excellent price for the quality. The collection ranges from professional separates to
casual and evening.

The company has a unique approach to distribution with company owned free-standing stores,
select better specialty stores and directly to women in private trunk shows by sales consultants
who own their own business and who provide outstanding service and a wide selection.

keen sense of style, a wealth of business experience, and the determination to become a leader

image and her passion for community service is rooted in these early years.

Nina founded Liz Claiborne Accessories and served on the Executive Committee of Liz

Nina believes strongly in contributing to the community, particularly to women, children, and the
arts. The company works closely with many non-profits and will donate part of the proceeds of a
Trunk Show to charity.
