On September 23rd, fashion designer Paulette Martsolf celebrated the 23rd anniversary of Allie-Coosh. Founding the longest running ladies boutique in Snider Plaza, she is grateful for her clients who have embraced and sustained her beloved brand which all started with a pajama collection. The name ‘Allie-Coosh’ stems from Paulette’s native land of Newfoundland which translates to ‘off the bed’. Although her apparel has evolved from sleepwear over the last 23 years her chic everyday lines continue to carry the quality of comfort.

Guests enjoyed wine, delicacies from Ford’s Kitchen and the chance to support Dwell with Dignity who benefited from the special occasion. The graceful and eloquent DWD founder Kim Robison shared her gratitude for the work all had put into the occasion. The crowd or realtors certainly understood the plight of the nonprofit which is to provide dignified housing for those in need. Each month Allie-Coosh will benefit a chosen charity with her new line of hand crafted handbags.
