With stores across the country and clients including some of the world’s most powerful and influential women, fashion designer Nina McLemore offers a beautiful, elegant and colorful collection made in New York from the finest natural fabrics.
Nina recommends washable tech-stretch equestrian cotton made in Switzerland. It looks contemporary and youthful in jackets, pants and dresses and travels well.
Nina recommends lightweight merino wool with a slight basket-weave texture, especially a jacket with three buttons closely spaced. It doesn’t bunch when you sit. It’s very smooth while standing. Wear with a dress and two-inch heels for a powerful yet feminine look.
Nina recommends silk dupioni, which has texture and iridescence and travels well. The reversible three-quarter-length jacket is very elegant and elongating. The ruffled neckline is very flattering for the stage or photos, and jacquards with a touch of gold are great at night.
