LOCATION: Main House

Join fashion and communication faculty, alumni, and students for A Tribute to Fashion Journalism and a trip back to 90s fashion on the occasion of the gift to Marymount’s library of an archive of the nationally syndicated column "Dress for Less".

The column ran from 1990 to 1995 in such newspapers as The Palm Beach Post, The Rocky Mountain News, Hartford Courant, and Washington Times. Sisters Andrea Lee and Christine Negroni syndicated the column, which was written by Candy Barrie. The column was so successful that a book of the same name followed, written by Barrie and Marymount alumna Patty Lowell ʼ85. The Negroni sisters and Lowell will be at the reception.

Lee Negroni is currently a lawyer with BuckleySandler LLP in the field of financial services regulation. Christine Negroni, a career journalist, writes for The New York Times and many other publications. She has worked as a network television correspondent for CBS News and CNN. Her book, Deadly Departure, on the crash of TWA Flight 800, was a New York Times Notable Book. Patty Lowell, former fashion editor for the Washington Times, writes the blog www.moreroomforshoes.com.
