GRETA also unveiled a new partnership with SHARE Inc., one of the most respected Southern California-based charitable organizations which raises funds for developmentally disabled, abused and neglected children. Joan Rush, SHARE Chairman of the Board, expressed sincere gratitude at Greta’s commitment to donate 10% of every regular price purchase made with the new loyalty card to SHARE. Several board members joined her at Wednesday evening’s cocktail party including Shirley Turteltaub, Esther Rosenfield and September Sarno.
Husband-and-wife designers Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia, based in NYC, expressly chose GRETA whose owner is renowned for her exquisite taste and loyal clientele. This is the exclusive home for their beautiful collection of dresses, separates, outerwear and jewelry which exudes an air of urban sophistication. The clean color palette is primarily comprised of whites and silver metallics, grounded by deep, inky black and navy blues, and accented with light pinks. Materials such as silk voiles, cotton, chiffon and organza are accented by just the right touches of sequins, florals, pleats, crinkling and drapery. The Resort 2010 collection is the perfect canvas to showcase Sachin + Babi’s renowned embroidery embellishment, and finishes.
For the past 48 years, GRETA has made her mark on the Westside’s well-dressed woman offering luxury fashion at reasonable prices. The next decade will continue to carry her brand’s progressive image with discriminating taste.
