NCJW to celebrate golden anniversary of Couturier Sale

The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Couturier Sale from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22 at the Contemporary Art Museum, 3750 Washington Boulevard.

“It’s very exciting to recognize Couturier, as NCJW’s premier event in resale since 1964,” said NCJW President Darien Arnstein. “For many years, generous NCJW members and others have donated designer and luxury brands to be sold at discounted prices in support of the critical work of our organization. For over 120 years, NCJW has worked to help women, children and families in our community.”

Reservations are required, and tickets start at $36.  Attendees are also asked to bring a new or gently used item to donate to TheResaleShop. RSVP to 314-993-5181 or online at

Well-known designers who will be represented at the event include Randi Chervitz, Lori Coulter, Michael Drummond (Project Runway), Amy Johnson (KayOss Designs), Laura Kathleen (Project Runway), Emily Koplar, Courtney Tharpe, Anjali Kamra and Everett Johnson.

The Resale Shop is the longest-running project for NCJW, raising funds for a myriad of services for women, children and families in the community.  The Resale Shop, formerly known as the Council Shop opened in 1940, and in 1964, the first Couturier Sale was held to showcase the finest merchandise.
