White House|Black Market Launches Inaugural-Inspired Dress Collection
Everyone is dying to know which designer gown Michelle Obama will wear for the inaugural ball later this month. The retailer White House|Black Market is getting a jump on the festivities with an inaugural-inspired dress collection launching in seven of its Beltway area stores. The prices range from $250 to $300 and the nine styles are being touted with "From Our White House to Yours."
The chain is also a sponsor of the Washingtonian Starry Night Inaugural Ball being held on Jan. 20 at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The party is a first for the Washington magazine. As for the newest addition to the party circuit, the Washingtonian one will be sure to have White House|Black Market's brand president Donna Noce partying the night away and two signature cocktails - The White House and The Black Market.
They began in 1985 as a single, tiny neighborhood boutique in Baltimore, Maryland. They were then called The White House, and offered unique, individual collections of fabulous clothing and accessories in shades of white and ivory.
As they grew they expanded on their original theme and opened Black Market in 1995, and in 1997 combined the boutiques into one concept, and White House Black Market was born.
Their goal has always been to make women feel beautiful and their clothing remains a symbol of that: the honest simplicity of black and white, and the remarkable individuality of the different styles we build from it.
