As a woman in the workforce, it can often be difficult to find time for oneself, but on September 15, prepare to be pampered. Local clothing designer Heather Ringland is hosting an event to offer women a place to have fun, socialize, network, and learn new things from several female entrepreneurs.

The Fall Fashionista Event will showcase 10 local women who have built their own businesses. Many of those women will have services such as hair, makeup, nails and even glamour shots to provide to guests at the event.

Dianne Boundikas, of Gelmoments, will be there offering $8-10 manicures and pedicures. Mallory Monteith will be available to create fall hair trends, styled for $10 or a blowout for $25. Mary Kay Makeup Trends will be creating fall eye and lip trends for $10, and Phelan photography will also be there to provide glamour or business shots for $5.

According to Ringland, the goal of the event was to allow working women in the community a chance to interact and learn from one another, all while being pampered. There will be live music by Truelove Ways, plenty of shopping and much more.

Ringland, who has always been intrigued by the world of fashion, has created a fall fashion line, made almost entirely out of bamboo fabrics, that she says is perfect for working women.

“It travels well, it looks great, it’s casual yet you can dress it up with different jewelry,” said Ringland. “It’s very good for todays women who are busy and on the run; they can just wash it, hang it, grab it and don’t have to iron it.”

She displays her collections, which range from size XS-3X, every Saturday at the Western Fair Market from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. each week. Her clothing will be on display and for sale at the event. On her website, Ringland advertises that if you can’t find what you’re looking for in her collection, she would be happy to create something custom-made.

Ringland is a proud member of the Women in Business group, who is also the events’ sponsor. They are a group of women who provide business and marketing support for other female entrepreneurs. Ringland is proud to be a part of the Women in Business organization because it is community-centered.

“It’s important to me that we are able to connect with other like-minded people who have different businesses that are working in the community,” she said. “It’s about building relationships.”Read more at:cocktail dresses
