ST.

Donations of gently used business clothing will be accepted for the organization’s Dress for Success program.

By collaborating instead of competing, we create a community of support to grow our businesses,” said Ellen Quade, Co-owner of Soul Sisters Designs & Boutique. “In addition to supporting a really great cause and our local women-owned boutiques, St. Charles Women’s Fashion Collective & Market is a fun opportunity to get your girlfriends together, grab a glass of wine, see the Spring and Summer 2023 fashion trends and shop for unique items.”
