About 50 women gathered on April 17th to support a good cause and learn about the latest in professional clothing trends.
Guests learned about Turning Point, an organization at UVU that helps individuals get back on their feet again after transition. Many of Turning Point’s clients are women who are re-entering the work force. WBN members and guests donated gently used professional clothing that will be given to women who are interviewing for or starting new jobs, but who can’t afford a new professional wardrobe to get them started. According to Shalene Matthews, who represented Turning Point at the event, the organization also offers a wide range of training to help individuals succeed.

Cherry Lane Boutique and Bijou Michelle Jewelry provided fashions and jewelry examples to keep everyone up-to-date on the latest trends. Thanks to models Katie, Rachel, Claire, KayAnn, Susi and Glenny for modeling the jewelry and fashions.
Featured trends: neutral colors with gold “statement” jewelry; lace accents and accessories,
such as the lace slip extender featured on the far right. Bold accessories such as handbags are also popular this year.
More trends: floral prints create a more feminine look without making clothes look “little girlish.”
Longer lengths are also in fashion this year.
New this year: navy as a neutral color, visible seams, and asymmetrical ruffles.
Thanks also to the Scera Center for the Arts for providing a great venue for the luncheon.
Up next: the WBN will join with the north county Women in Business for an outstanding conference in May in place of our regularly scheduled meeting. For more information and to register, click here.
