The first of several in-store events hosted by Altman is scheduled for Sept. 19 at the Wolford store in Beverly Center in Los Angeles. A second event is slated at the Wolford boutique at NorthPark Center in Dallas.
Altman described Wolford as a specialist of “some of the most innovative and technological products in the market.”
“I love outfitting women from head to toe, inside out, and I know that it takes great shapewear and sexy lingerie to make every outfit look its best — and make every women look and feel her best,” said Altman.
