“Fashion tells a story about where we have been, where we are, and where we are going,” states designer, style coach and Davis, California downtown retailer Heather Caswell, as she launched a nationwide contest to get women talking about the “great romance and passions of a human experience” that relates to a single piece from their wardrobes.
The Wardrobe will be hosting an “If Our Clothes Could Talk Fashion Party” on Friday, July 23rd from 8-11pm. The evening will feature an informal fashion show, music and videos, as well as the top stories from the If Our Clothes Could Talk contest. The final winners will be announced Friday night July 23rd at the fashion party located in the heart of Downtown Davis, The Wardrobe.
