The holiday season provides an endless stream of reasons to dress up—black tie galas, fundraisers, cocktail parties, office events and more. From fashion forward to more classic stylings, Dugo at the Galleria helps women discover that perfect holiday attire. “It’s a matter of studying the trends and knowing our clients,” says owner Nancy Shank.
What’s on trend this year? One word: color. Red, burgundy and olive tones are replacing the black and gray of Christmases past. Flower gardens may be whitewashed by our Minnesota winter, but pops of color in our holiday wardrobes help defy any seasonal sense of gloom.
Dressy separates, formal gowns and beautiful jewelry from Dugo, all in a wide variety of popular colors, ensure you’ll look as amazing as the Northern Lights. Shank recommends most clients consider purchasing dressy separate pieces for all of their party needs. Blouses, blazers, dress pants and more. “A dressy separate piece works to wear multiple times,” she says. If clients are looking for something more glamorous this season, Shank recommends the formal gowns. Designers like “Teri Jon, Carmen Marc Valvo, Baratelli, Tom and Linda Platt, Theia and Frascara,” Shank says, “These would be the people we have the most beautiful gowns from.” Prices range from $75–$4,000 dollars.
“We have an amazing fitter available to us if something needs a little tweaking,” says Shank. A stunning outfit that fits perfectly is the stuff of fairy godmothers, or more likely, Dugo.
