Althea Harper to Host Trunk Show at Sloane Boutique

I’ve been a huge fan of Althea Harper for several years now. It’s been really neat following this midwest fashion maven from her formative days right out of DAAP and on Project Runway… then as a designer formulating her first collections…getting Hollywood attention… and visiting Tri-State boutiques for trunk shows.

If you are a big fan too, I have some good news! She’ll be visiting the area very soon! March 16 from 6-9pm, she’ll be at Sloane Boutique in OTR. See the below release for more details!

Sheer maxi dress that I'm LOVING in Althea's new 2012 collection
CINCINNATI (March 8, 2012) – On Friday, March 16 from 6pm to 9pm, Sloane Boutique will be hosting a Trunk Show with Fashion Designer and DAAP Graduate, Althea Harper. Althea Harper will be present with her Spring 2012 Collection as well as her Fall 2011 Collection. Sushi from Fusian Sushi and Gallo Wines will also be provided.
Althea Harper is a fashion designer and entrepreneur who manages her own fashion line, ALTHEA HARPER. With a cutting edge style that combines both tailoring and draping to make silhouettes appear strong and beautiful, Althea Harper is one of the breakthrough fashion designers in today’s industry. Her style reflects her experience working alongside numerous renowned designers, including Anna Sui, Zac Posen, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. She is also known for her unique work in knitwear.
Althea is poised to dress the women of today for tomorrow. Her designs have received much praise from industry leaders. According to Tim Gunn, former chair of fashion design at Parsons The New School for Design and host of Project Runway, “Everyone [thinks] she’s only on the show because she’s a tall blond beauty. But she’s extremely talented. She’s going to blow people away.”
Althea’s designs have won the attention of many people, including passionate Project Runway fans and the entertainment industry’s most respected personalities. Bloggers and fans have affectionately labeled her the “fabulous glamazon” and Tommy Hilfiger called her “genius.” Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, the Kardashians and Angela Simmons are all fans of her designs.
Althea attended both University of Cincinnati School of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning and Central Saint Martins in London. Following graduation she became a finalist on Project Runway Season 6. Upon completion of filming Project Runway, Althea moved to New York City where Tory Burch invited her to become a part of the label’s design team. While designing for Tory Burch, she continued to build her own line, self-titled ALTHEA HARPER which has shown consistently in New York fashion week since its debut in September 2009. Althea now currently designs full time for her successful eponymous line.
