Ken Downing Gift Collection at Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue

Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue opened The Ken Downing Gift Collection shop last evening. The kickoff event featured a champagne reception, holiday treats – and shopping!

Neiman Marcus’ Fashion Director Ken Downing curated an exclusive collection of 37 gifts ranging in price from $32 – $1,800. His selections are so beautiful they put everyone in the mood to shop! Ten percent of the sales of each of these gifts will benefit a local charity supporting arts experiences for youth. Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue selected the Chicago Children’s Museum. So this holiday season you can give fabulous gifts (already picked out for you) and then give a little bit more to a great cause. When you shop Michigan Avenue you support the Chicago Children’s Museum nd online The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.

Designers in the collection include: Chanel, Maison Francis Kurkdijan, Nest, Tom Ford Beauty, John Hardy, Ippolita, Alexis Bittar, Michael Kors, Eddie Borgo, Jonathan Adler, William Yeoward, Monica Rich Kosann, Mrs. John L. Strong, John Derian, Alexander Wang, Moncler, Charlotte Olympia, Alexander McQueen, Tory Burch and Stella McCartney.  The gifts include pillows by Jonathan Adler, a Tory Burch bag, Tom Ford lipstick set and a McQueen clutch. Here are just a few of my favorites.
