Mark your calendar. Eileen Fisher and Dillard’s at Quail Springs Mall will present a free spring fashion show March 7.

The event, with Eileen Fisher representative Roy Fiedler, will be from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Eileen Fisher department at Dillard’s.

Fisher started the company for what she says was a personal reason. She was having trouble getting dressed.

While working as an interior designer and graphic designer, she kept thinking about simple shapes for clothes. Of course they had to be in great fabrics, beautiful colors and proportions that work together.

With $350 in the bank, she took the plunge, made up four shapes and took them to The Boutique Show in New York. She got $3,000 in orders, expanded to eight pieces and took them to a second show and received $40,000 in orders. She was in business. That was 1984.

From the beginning, she said, she wanted Eileen Fisher to be known for clothes you don’t have to think too much about. You put them on and know they will give you the comfort, ease and elegance to move with confidence through your day, she said on her website.

For reservations, call 755-5220, Ext. 5153.
