Sixth Annual Women that Soar Awards

The Sixth Annual Women that Soar Awards will honor beloved local designer Paulette Martsolf with the Entrepreneur Award on November 9th, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Reunion Blvd.

The Women That Soar Awards debuted in 2007 to honor extraordinary women in entertainment, sports, business, fashion, arts, philanthropy, media and civic health as well as Lifetime Achievement and Legacy awards.

The November 9th program will be broadcast on December 15th and another date TBD. In addition to Paulette, the 2013 Women That Soar Awards honorees include: Her Royal Highness, Princess Reema Bandar; Former FirstLady of Mexico, Marta Fox; Former President WNBA, Donna Orender; Entreperneur and Stylist, Aly Scott; Philanthropist, Anne Davidson; CEO of Ewomen Network, Sandra Yancy; activist, Cheryl (Action) Jackson; Executive Producer, A&R Executive, Teresa Lababera-Whites; Group Publisher, DMagazine, Kimberly Elenez; Attorney, Dawn Neufeld; and Legacy Award Recipient Nell St. Cyr, first female president of the Houston Petroleum Club.

Paulette will receive the Entrepreneur Award recognition just two months following the twenty year anniversary of her popular Snider Plaza boutique - Alllie Coosh. Allie-Coosh is the longest running ladies boutique in the popular shopping destination. 

Making her first mark on the design world with a line of pajamas at age 28, this Newfoundland native branded her designs 'allie-coosh' which translates to 'off to bed' in her Canadian province. Although the chic line of sleepwear awoke a strong initial audience, she evolved her collection to everyday and special occasion wear in the first three years of business in Snider Plaza.

Paulette’s clothing collection stems from a variety of novelty textiles such as cashmere, cotton, linen and organza yet has an exceptionally high demand for her signature custom dyed fabric. This fabric, imported from Japan, is well received by her sophisticated audience who enjoys jet setting and socializing in style and comfort.  

A prestigious crowd of Park Cities women beckon Paulette for custom made designs such as wedding, charity gala and daytime attire. Over the years she has had several boutique expansions and the launch of her own jewelry line. This handmade jewelry collection incorporates inspiration from the rugged coastline of Newfoundland known to the natives as ‘The Rock’.  This appreciation for natural elements blended with her husband’s influence as a paleontologist results in necklaces, bracelets and earrings constructed of dinosaur bones, mammoth tusk, antique ivory, raw amber, black jade, pyrite, raw crystal, Ethiopian silver, Mali prayer beads, coral, wood, leather, feathers and other elements of the earth. 

Women That Soar will donate a portion of the award show ticket sales to two charities: the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth and the Memnosyne Foundation. For more information about the organization and events, contact Gina Grant, CEO of Women That Soar, at 214-708-2663 or email
