Morris Sokol’s granddaughter touts designs of her own at Copper Penny this weekend
New York-based designer Pauline Sokol Nakios has made her way home to Charleston this weekend for an exclusive show of her latest designs at Copper Penny Boutique.
Nakios was born and raised in the Lowcountry and is the granddaughter of the late Morris Sokol, an iconic Charleston retailer who founded the furniture store on 510 King St.
Continuing a family legacy of luxurious designs, Nakios created Lilla P, a women’s fashion label that is now carried in upscale boutiques around the country.
“I was born and raised in Charleston so coming home is always special,” Nakios said. “I look forward to seeing old friends and getting to know the Copper Penny customers and Lilla P fans.”
The fashion designer will be at Copper Penny at 280 W. Coleman Blvd. in Mount Pleasant for an exclusive trunk show on Friday until 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Five percent of the proceeds earned from Lilla P clothing sales will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Light refreshments from Sugar Bakeshop and Goat Sheep Cow will be served during the event.
