April Renée
Clothing from Saks Fifth Avenue: Alice + Olivia

April Renée’s art is her fashion — she believes that how someone dresses can reveal their inner spirit. “You can recreate yourself through clothing, and you can be the canvas,” she says.

A. Renée Boutique’s unique clothing comes from small U.S. designers and can’t be found in most boutiques, with vivid colors and beautiful fabrics that are sized exclusively for women. A. Renée says her fashion is for women who dress to kill. “You can hide behind fashion or stand out in it.”

April is also a dedicated member of Saint Augustine Catholic Church in Treme and is the Campaign Manager for its Restoration Campaign, which aims to preserve the 178-year-old, historically significant building. “Find a cause that speaks to your heart and touches the lives of many,” she says.
