Allison wanted to start a high end jewelry line that would appeal a wide variety of women at every stage of their lives. Allison’s personal taste ranges from bohemian and funky to chic and sophisticated. With a broad mission and lofty goals to bring high end affordable jewelry to the masses she created Queen Bee Designs to fill a niche in the Washington DC fashion community that was instantly recognized as world class - The Washingtonian Magazine named her a Rising Star in the Fashion Community and a Person to Watch. Her work has been seen on national television and in print editions of The Washington Post, Lucky Magazine, The Washingtonian, and on celebrities such as Laura Bush, Marcia Cross, Nancy Pelosi, and fans include Vogue's Andre Leon Talley and fashion expert Tim Gunn. Women & Wine engages women 21 and older who are interested in learning more about community volunteer opportunities, networking, socializing, and enjoying wine. Early bird rate available!
