[image-1]Founded in 1962 by Robert and Marie Gray, St. John is an American luxury house specializing in “effortless, alluring, and refined clothing.” While the clothes they offer today are worn by the likes of Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, and Hillary Clinton, the company has humble beginnings — a knitting machine inspired Marie to design dresses for herself, and the brand has since been a “coming together of craft and couture based on the premise of a simple, yet elegant knit dress.”

Shop the couture line this Friday and Saturday at Gwynn’s of Mt. Pleasant from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Gwynn’s, founded in 1967, is an independently owned and operated luxury department store offering men’s and women’s designer clothing and accessories, including labels like Jimmy Choo, Escada, Tom Ford, and more.
