JLMH Represented at Couture for a Cause

Thanks to ME3 and Amber Smith’s hard work, JLMH was represented at Couture for a Cause by talented young fashion designer, Karen Huskins. On Friday, November 5, 2010 at the IMAX in Raleigh, many talented young designers showcased their creativity by designing two dresses that they thought embodied the spirit of a local non-profit. It was a really great evening! Our dresses were spectacular.
