As early as Shari can remember she always had a passion for dressing her girlfriends. With a genuine talent and natural eye for fashion, she decided to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. It was here that Shari learned how to merchandise fabrics, patterns, and colors which would later afford her the opportunity to dress thousands of women.
Behind the dressing room curtain, Shari's genuine warmth has led to countless lifelong friendships. She recognized leather and suede as sophisticated, chic, and feminine, which continues to be her trademark fabric. When combined with lavish silks, cashmeres, and cottons it unveils the essence of Shari's "look".
Her dream of owning her own boutique became a reality in 1979, as Shari's Place opened in Kings Point, NY. Her loyal staff embraces her fashion philosophy and understanding; a client who wears what they buy will be complimented and feel beautiful.
