iPEARL Fashion Collection to debut in Chicago
Oct '09
The iPEARL fashion collection will debut in Chicago at the Jane Miller Gallery in Evanston on October 31 and November 1, 2009. The collection is the creation of Ilene Pearl Bannwart, a Bucks County, PA fashion designer with a flair for creating sophisticated, luxurious investment jackets that are timeless and effortlessly wearable. Her iPEARL collection features couture quality and classic styles of limited edition jackets out of luscious European fabrics lined with spectacular silks that are "like a party inside". The collection offers exclusive, meticulously tailored and detailed pieces that can be worn as eveningwear or casually with jeans.

"Women appreciate the quality of my workmanship and the flattering, feminine styles and gorgeous fabrications. They constantly tell me they've grown tired of basic black, but continue to wear it because it's the safest way to go, " said Pearl Bannwart. "If the design and colors come together to enhance their natural beauty, women no longer need to 'play it safe'," added Pearl Bannwart.

Ilene Pearl Bannwart will be showing the iPearl collection at the Jane Miller Gallery at 708 Church Street, Suite 234, in Evanston, IL on Saturday, October 31 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, November 1 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
In its first two years, the iPEARL collection has gained a strong following with fine specialty stores such as Takashimaya New York, select boutiques and a discerning clientele around the country. As an added quality feature, the iPearl collection is made in New York City.

The iPearl collection, known as 'Luxurious fashions for elegant women' is the vision of Ilene Pearl Bannwart. Pearl Bannwart launched her concept for the iPEARL collection two years ago. Her firsthand, in depth knowledge of fine custom apparel, however, can be traced back to her family heritage, the love of fine clothing, and the arts.

The Bucks County, Pennsylvania designer was borne into a family in the Midwest whose lineage was steeped in the art of crafting fine quality garments. Her ancestors immigrated to America from Russia and Poland, and were skilled artisans in the world of design and tailoring. As a child, she had the good fortune of being outfitted in a custom made wardrobe, which soon became the standard she expected in clothing, and continued over the years. She loved fabrics and textiles, and spent hours studying patterns.
