This summer, New York–based Nina McLemore (that’s nine-uh) brought her brightly colored jackets and suits to Buckhead. McLemore’s background is with Liz Claiborne; she started its accessories line in 1980. These days, she dresses Hillary, Supreme Court justices, senators, and university presidents, filling a niche for the powerful career woman who cares more about style than fashion. Her garments are made of Italian wools and dupioni silks but come at a fraction of the price of luxury designer labels. 110 East Andrews Drive, ninamclemore.com
