Powerful Women Choose to Wear Clothes Designed by Nina McLemore

The Wall Street Journal recently reported, “Exiting a television appearance recently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and PBS NewsHour co-anchor Gwen Ifill stopped and had a laugh. They were wearing nearly identical blue jackets by a designer named Nina McLemore. Though she is little known in the wider world, Ms. McLemore's clothing is well-known in the circles of powerful women. Hillary Clinton wears her. So does PepsiCo Chief Executive Indra Nooyi, Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.”  Renowned designer, Nina McLemore will discuss the evolution of fashion and the history of the European exchange with the Far East via the Silk Road at the Charleston Library Society.  For more information, please call 843-723-9912 or to RSVP, please send an email to
