GREAT BARRINGTON — We women wish to be fashion fabulous. It’s our unique way to express ourselves and flaunt our truest colors from the inside out.
We glow with confidence and self-assurance in clothing and accessories that emulate our spirit and give us wings to fly.
So it’s only natural that when we see the word “sale” on clothing, you better believe we’ll flock like geese in search of the perfect bag, shoe, dress or jewelry to match our distinctive and flowering personalities.
Now, I’m about to reveal a best-kept secret in the fashion world of the Berkshires. This past weekend was the sixth annual celebration of BerkChique.
Founded by Nancy Fitzpatrick in 2012, BerkChique is a “fashionable alternative to the traditional fundraiser in the form of a pop-up boutique selling clothes and accessories collected from some of the most fashionable and stylish closets in the Berkshires.”
This year’s BerkChique was presented by Catwalk Boutique, the hippest shop in resale clothing, owned by and in support of The Berkshire Humane Society.
Catwalk co-founders Mimi Rosenblatt and Leslie Weil were at BerkChique to accommodate guests.
