Spring has officially arrived, and with it comes a spate of trunk shows featuring new looks for the season. Here’s the lineup:
▪ Galatea Boutique’s Hothouse Posey jewelry trunk show wraps up Sunday. The jewelry line is made by local designer Ndidi Kowalcyzk using enamel to create funky, colorful statement necklaces and more. For details, call 919-833-8565.
▪ New shoe styles from VanEli come to Main and Taylor for a trunk show March 31-April 1. The North Hills store will have additional spring and summer styles, all available in sizes 4-12, including hard-to-find narrow widths. For more info, call 919-821-1556.
▪ Dress Raleigh hosts a trunk show of handbags from New Vintage at its Wade Avenue location on March 30. New Vintage repurposes high-end handbags to create funky new designs – think a Louis Vuitton logo bag with a poop emoji applique or original bird art. Call 919-699-6505 for more information.
