Day Nursery Director of Development Beth Rodriguez is our guest blogger today. Beth has been working closely with our Auxiliary on the production of the Day Nursery Auxiliary Luncheon and Style Show which is October 1 at the Oak Hill Mansion on 116th Street in Carmel. Tickets are still available. For more info, click the link to the right. Beth wanted to share some information about the sponsors who are supporting this year’s fashion show.
I want to tell you about two special sponsors of the Day Nursery Auxiliary Style Show- DL Lowry Hairspa and Boutique and Fresh Fettle.
DL Lowry Hairspa and Boutique will provide the hair styling and make artistry for the Helen Wells Models at our upcoming style show on October 1. This fantastic salon has been making its mark as the go-to hairspa for cutting edge styles and boutique accessories. We are very excited that they have so generously donated their services to our event for which all proceeds directly benefit the children and families we serve. Be sure to join us at the Style Show to see their amazing work!
DL Lowry Hairspa and Boutique is located at 1300 E. 86th Street in Nora Plaza. Call them at 317.843.2611 to make an appointment or visit their website for more information. And be sure to check out their new location, DL Salon, at 49th and Penn.
This year, the Day Nursery Auxiliary has engaged Danielle Smith (a Day Nursery graduate!) and owner of Fresh Fettle, an Indianapolis-based fashion events and creative consulting company to produce the Style Show. Danielle’s background includes a Bachelors Degree in Fashion Design, and her experience includes work as a fashion journalist, wardrobe stylist, on-air fashion personality, public relations and special events coordinator and corporate merchandising coordinator. She also served as Technical Editor for the popular book Fashion for Dummies (Wiley) and is an adjunct fashion illustration instructor at The Art Institute of Indianapolis.
Smith credits some of her earliest child memories of enjoying art (and discovering a dislike of raisins) while being a student at Day Nursery’s Lilly Center Preschool Program in 1983. The excitement of working with color, shapes, and texture follows her today. “Day Nursery provided a great foundation and helped enhance the creativity my parents and sisters were already nurturing at home. I can remember feeling advanced in this area and wanting to learn more. I am a true believer of the saying ‘Never stop learning.’ The beauty of creativity is that it is unlimited and uninhibited…especially for a child. “
