Schlussel
designs clothes
for the active
woman. It wears
well, travels
well, and packs
well.

After a divorce, she decided
to return to fashion designing
and selling clothes. In 1984,
Schlussel put together a collec-
tion of six pieces — pants,
dresses, and tops. She intro-
duced her collection at a March
of Dimes meeting, and had two
orders at the end of the day.
The Eccentric also featured a
story about her new designs.
She then showed her collec-
tion to a friend, a salesperson
at Neiman-Marcus. Her friend
loved the dresses and wore one
to work. By the end of the day,
the friend went to the manager
because some customers
wanted to buy the same dress.
