Alexandria native, now New York fashion designer

Kathlin Argiro spent Saturday, July 21, at Susan Gerock’s shop Zoe. Argiro was featured in the Alexandria Gazette at the age of 16 when she started selling some of her designs at the Farmers Market at Market Square. She is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design and has been designing under her Kathlin Argiro Atelier label for a number of years.

She is known for her white graduation gown designs, her bridal and formalwear offerings, and her wrap dresses.

Zoe Boutique carries a regular stock of her wrap dresses and the Dressong (a dress/sarong combination), and they also carry samples of her formalwear for special order.

Out on the street, wands were being made, balloons being created into hats and animals, music wandered through the seaport. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic was chosen as the beneficiary of the Wish Star sales.
