This Week's Feature: Innovative Scarf Company Empowering Women

No-Fuss Scarves was created by Joyce Marie, a fashion industry maven with thirty years worth of designer/seamstress experience.  Picking up on the fact that the scarf industry had become outdated, Joyce Marie decided she would try her hand at changing the scarf design and strategy.

"Women hardly wear them anymore, especially the square scarf.  In fact teens don’t wear them at all.  So, I asked myself...why is that?  It was obvious that in our Western culture, with today’s clothing styles, the traditional square has long been outdated," says Marie.

Knowing that scarves have the ability to add much more character to a woman's wardrobe, Marie patented two different scarf designs.  Her goal in doing so has provided women with the opportunity to own one scarf with many different functions.  Her designs can be worn as a shirt, a dress, a skirt or simply as a scarf, plus many more uses.  With these new alternatives this makes "shopping on a budget" easy.  Owning just a few designs can redefine a women's entire wardrobe.

No-Fuss Scarves has not stopped their mission of empowering women as the company is an active charitable contributor to many women's causes including The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation and the Women's Employment Network.  They are even affiliated with the Dress for Success program and have attended functions hosted by the organization.  No-Fuss Scarves fashion shows are educational and actually provide step-by-step instructions for women on how to wear the scarves in creative ways.  They will continue to make programs and demonstrations part of their strategic goals in their business plan.
