Beginning in Washington, D.C. his capital home city, Neiman Marcus will host private clients, professional athletes and entertainers, Capitol Hill staffers and members of the DC lifestyle and destination press in store with the designer.

“We are so excited that this is happening now. It allows us to scale our production and meet the needs of our very discerning clientele around the country.
