Lifestyle Letter

Fashion To Fall For.

W

e are incredibly excited to bring you the first all-fashion issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle. Our team has never worked harder on an issue, but we’ve also never had this much fun. We started by looking for local models—real women living right here in our community. Two ladies featured in our May issue blew us away at their “Women to Watch” photo shoot, so we brought Jenny Gutman and Kara Lyons back to strike a pose for us. We added Melissa Askren to the mix, a local working mom who has dabbled in modeling and is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. These three ladies did a stunning job—especially while donning heavy fall coats on 90-degree July nights. Once we had our models, it was time to find our looks. We leaned heavily on four local experts to guide us: Felisa Insignares from Designer Items and More, Sherry Armstead from Art on Symmes, Tracey Schneider from Liberty Center and Richard Lanthorn from Dillard’s. The stores they represent are vastly different in style, which provided us with the variety we sought to fill our pages. Thank you also to Bill Welling from Welling & Co. Jewelers for helping to provide a few finishing touches. Next, it was time for the photo shoots. Pure Concept Salon + Spa at Liberty Center made our models photo-ready by providing beautiful hair and make-up. And one of the photographers on our team, Len Kaltman, spent many years in New York doing fashion photography, so we knew right away he would be up for the challenge. He accomplished our vision. When it came to finding the setting for our photo shoots, Liberty Center made the perfect backdrop. Thank you to all the shop owners and shoppers for being so accommodating during our many nights of shooting. Add in a beautiful car courtesy of Tom Fiehrer from Fiehrer Motors, and our backdrops were complete. Last, my editor, Abbey McMahon, and I learned that our roles expanded far beyond just the organization of these complex photo shoots. We fixed stray hairs, buckled shoes, fanned overheated models, powdered faces, pinned dresses, rolled around heavy bags overflowing with clothing and accessories, and finally collapsed in exhaustion at the end of some very long nights. But all the while we smiled and laughed more than we have on any previous issue. What you see inside these pages is a labor of fashion love, and we hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed creating it.

One of 145 affiliates worldwide, Dress for Success Cincinnati shines as one of the top ten in programs offered and number of clients served.

tic violence victims, or with mental illness. We work with a wide spectrum of women.” She explains that one of the unique features of the program is that once a woman is a client, she is always a client. “Our services are available to a client for life. She can come and go as she needs, but there is no timing out of our services,” Nolan says.


The Suiting program is the entry point for its clients, where referred women are offered an interview suit, then invited to participate in its additional programs. At its downtown office, Dress for Success Cincinnati offers a Career Center, including a computer lab for preparing and printing copies of resumes and one-on-one appointments with Human Resources professionals, volunteers who fine-tune resumes and conduct practice interviews with clients. It also features a mobile unit that brings its services to women in the greater metro area. The Going Places Network is a nine-week group program for job seekers, covering a different training topic each week to build skills and confidence. “In 2016, 86% of the program participants were employed within 90 days of program completion,” Nolan shares. “Once a woman gains employment, she is first eligible to come back for an additional ten pieces of workplace appropriate clothing,” Nolan explains, “and she is invited to join our Professional Women’s Group.”

Gina Goings (middle) served as the 2016 Dress for Success Cincinnati Fashion Show chairperson.

The Professional Women’s Group is an ongoing support network, designed to help women navigate the work world. “It meets at least once a month on Saturdays covering topics like how to get the next promotion, financial literacy, health and wellness, work/ life balance—a variety of topics,” says Nolan. More than 160 tons of clothing was gathered by Dress for Success Cincinnati in 2016. What doesn’t get saved for the Suiting program goes to Portaluca, a resale shop located Downtown. All proceeds go back to Dress for Success Cincinnati. “We accept donations not just of employment attire, but any women’s attire,” Nolan shares. “We always have a particular need for plus size clothing.” Don’t be fooled by its name—Dress for Success Cincinnati, like the women they lead, is about more than the power suit. It’s in the business of changing lives. “We do so much beyond the suit,” Nolan says. “We recognize that the suit is just the Clients walk the runway at the 2016 Dress for Success Cincinnati Fashion Show.
