Indianapolis socialite Lorene Burkhart knows how to dress for an occasion.
Burkhart, of Burkhart Network, showed up at Saks Fifth Avenue’s luncheon and Chanel trunk show March 5 in one of the design house’s vintage suits.
The cream-colored skirt and jacket combination was purchased in Florida about 15 years ago.
Burkhart was one of about a dozen people at the luncheon, held just outside the swanky Chanel
boutique at Saks.
“It is a very glamorous name, just because the woman (the late designer Coco Chanel) was so glamorous,” said Burkhart, who added that women should expect to wear a larger size in Chanel than they do in American clothing. “So you don’t pay
attention to what the number says. Find something that looks good and clip the number out.”
Attendees were treated to lunch, wine and a trunk show with models wearing samples from Chanel’s 2009 spring and summer collection.
Other lunch attendees included Jacqueline Buckingham Anderson, president and CEO of Jacqueline Buckingham Anderson LLC; Sherri Meyer and her daughter Nicole Newkirk, both of Pendleton; and Kathy Martin Harrison, of Ed Martin auto
