Fashion designed honored by Fairfield Library

Fairfield Public Library recently installed a plaque in its teen room recognizing fashion designer Jennifer Butler's donation of all of the proceeds from her spring and fall runway shows to the room.
Since last year she has raised almost $4,000 for the library, she said.
Butler in 2006 opened Jennifer Butler Made to Measure, a fashion shop, across the street from the library, according to a library news release. She said she feels that the library is "the real anchor for downtown Fairfield" and has thought, while looking at it, that she and her daughters, Hazel and Olivia, would probably visit often.
Butler will present her spring 2012 collection to benefit the library 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, at the Delamar Southport Hotel, 275 Old Post Road, Fairfield. Cocktails and hors d-oeuvres will be served from 7 to 8 p.m.
The event, which will take place in the Delamar's new Folly room, will include a runway show featuring rainwear, suits, dresses, evening gowns, bridal and bats mitzvah dresses, girl get-ups, and menswear. Jewelry for the show will be provided by Jennifer Brown, make-up by Leslie Atiles of Distinct Artistry and hair by Fringe 125.
Call Butler at 203-256-5768 or visit her store, 1326 Post Road, for tickets, which cost $60 each.
