Klara Kouture EventKlara Kouture is hosting a festive event for their new sensory sensitive dancewear line! Klara Kouture offers chic dancewear created for your comfort.  Klara, a 10 year old model, actress, dancer, and now designer, began the brand after seeing a lack of sensory-friendly dancewear throughout her eight years of dancing.  She had a mission that her biggest passion – dance – would become more accessible to those who wanted to be comfortable.The grand reveal of the clothing brand will be attended by various designers Klara has worked with in the past, including at New York Fashion Week. It is planned to be an event full of music, dance, entertainment, yummy food and designs. Tickets are also available for the public to attend.  The grand reveal will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 3 at Ellington Studios, located at 51 S. Raleigh St. in Angier. ​
