Fashion Designer Dena Burton to present Collection at Special Needs Network Affair
Los Angeles Fashion Designer Dena Burton will present her fashion line during the Special Needs Networks 8th Annual Pink Pump Affair at The Four Season Hotel LA in Beverly Hills, CA
A native of Chicago, and a graduate of Howard University with a BA in English, and Minor in Radio, Television, and Film Production, Dena relocated to Los Angeles where she began a successful career in film, television, and theatre. Working behind the scenes further fueled her true ambition, which was to design fashionable clothing for women.
With the support of a Karen Kane scholarship, she attended The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), and the rest, as they say, is fashion history!
A veteran of the fashion industry, Dena successfully launched The Dena Burton Collection in 2008, offering classic one-of-a-kind luxury designs for the confident, accomplished, and discerning jet setter. Burtons designs have been presented in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Miami, as well as internationally, in Africa, Jamaica and Fiji.
Special Needs Network is a non-profit organization that was started by Areva Martin. The purpose of the organization is to provide services and support to underprivileged families impacted by autism. The proceeds from the Pink Pump Affair are earmarked for Camp JPAC which is SNN's free summer camp for children with autism and their typically developing siblings.
