Bush Foundation Presents Fashion Show

For Release: April 6, 2004
College Station, TX - The George Bush Presidential Library Foundation will host a fundraising luncheon and fashion show on April 7 th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Hilton Hotel. The show features the Gayla Bentley 2004 Spring Collection.

The spring collection is a mélange of colors ranging from a palette of soft pastels to bold, bright colors and of course, black. Bentley's collection, designed for the "woman with curves," targets a fuller figured woman, size 12 and up. "Flirty and feminine...my clothes are designed to flatter real women," says Bentley. Silhouettes are designed to enhance the form of a woman's body and hide imperfections. The collection features a mix and match approach, giving women more options with fewer pieces.

Gayla Bentley began designing her line for "women with curves" in 2000 after 25 years as a fashion consultant and stylist. She spent countless hours in dressing rooms with women, size 12 and larger, who criticized the retailers for not offering them the three "F's" . fashion, femininity and fit. Seeing the opportunity, she made the decision to design a collection that would address these issues and has turned out a line of clothing that keep women coming back for more. Loungewear or black-tie, business or vacation, the collection is designed for all occasions. Helping women feel confident and look beautiful is Gayla's primary objective.

The Gayla Bentley Collection is available at her showroom in Houston , through the Barry Zucker Showroom at the Dallas market and will be available this Fall 2004 at Nordstrom's. A trunck show will follow the fashion show from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Mockingbird Room.
