On Saturday evening, the nationally acclaimed Baltimore fashion mainstay, Ruth Shaw, celebrated its 40th anniversary. Guests mingled and sipped cocktails until the lights dimmed for the highlight of the evening, a runway show featuring the season’s latest fashion trends.
The current treasure of the Ruth Shaw collection, handbags by Love, Alex, above, were on display inside. The bags, hand-woven by artisans in Italy, are exclusive to Ruth Shaw in the Baltimore area.
Aimee Martin carried a Love, Alex bag and praised its functionality, “I can never find a place for my lipstick or my phone in my Fendi, but these have got pockets for everything.”
Throughout the night, guests commended Ruth Shaw on its 40 years as a staple in the Baltimore fashion arena saying, “Every major fashion designer in New York we have here in one tiny capsule.” —Meredith Herzing, social media intern.
