Note: "In the early sixties Alfredo's Wife, Ava Dering, began receiving invitations from ladies who had seen her designs while traveling through historic Jerome, Arizona. She was asked to show her distinctive yet elegant casual clothing in homes from LaJolla, California to Daufuski Island, South Carolina. (Her tops, bottoms, dresses and caftans were once draped over President Harry Truman's piano!) Women have flocked to her shops in Sedona, Sanibel Island, LaJolla and Hilton Head. Retail stores like Neiman Marcus, and Nordstroms, and numerous boutiques around the country clamored to feature her unique designs."
