On Aug. 30, a painting inspired by a vintage Lanvin dress will be unveiled at Second Style Clothing Resale Boutique. The painting was created by Streetsboro artist Jennifer Avers Benson. Avers Benson spent more than 20 hours recreating the geometric black and white designs of the painting titled "A Vintage Illusion."
The dress was brought in to the store for consignment last fall, and store owner Brandi Wiles-Evans was immediately struck by the beauty and quality of the dress, and decided to commission a painting. The dress will be on display, as well as the painting.
Avers Benson will be on hand to discuss the painting from 1-3 p.m. Aug. 30. Second Style is located at 8098 Main Street, Garrettsville. The store carries new and gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories for men, women, and children, as well as toys and baby gear.
