Peter Nygard Supports Victims of Hurricane Joaquin
designer Peter Nygard opened his new NYGARD SLIMs store on October 17th at the Mall at
Marathon in Nassau and announced that $1.00 from every pair of
SLIMs sold during the months of October and November will be donated
directly to the Family Island Hurricane Relief Efforts.
"Together WE can make a difference," said Nygard at two separate
fashion shows with a standing room only crowd.
Nygard has been a long time philanthropist to Bahamians in need,
sponsoring numerous athletes and donating hundreds of thousands of
dollars to other worthy Bahamian causes.
Taking part in the show was Nygard's daughter Bianca, as well as his first grandchild, Saylor Rayn Murray, who is Bianca's daughter. The fashion shows debuted an inter-generational segment where
mothers, daughters and granddaughters walked the runway together.

NYGÅRD International states that Breast Cancer awareness and research is
of the utmost importance and is their corporate charity of choice. Over
a decade ago, NYGÅRD responded to a customer survey and decided to take
the recommendation to make a meaningful contribution toward finding a
cure for Breast Cancer and the company’s commitment to the cause has
been strong ever since. The company donates $1.6 million a year to this
worthy cause. As Peter Nygård says, "Our company philosophy is to keep
the awareness for Breast Cancer 'top of mind' not just during Breast
Cancer Awareness Month, but all year round."
"Every year, NYGÅRD celebrates Breast Cancer survivors in our fashion
shows," said Bianca Nygard. "For NYGÅRD's Fall 2015 Fashion Show and Event on
October 17th, we invited 10 vibrant survivor models to participate and
help raise awareness. The outfits worn by the models were gifted to them
following the show as a fun and exciting way to celebrate the amazing
women who are survivors of this horrible disease." In addition, $1 from
every in-store sale of regular priced NYGÅRD SLIMS sold between
September 18th and October 31st is donated to Breast Cancer research in
both Canada and through NYGÅRD's U.S affiliate department store

NYGÅRD SLIMS Still Going Strong
Since its 2013 debut at the semi-annual NYGÅRD SLIMS Fashion Show, the carefully crafted Peter Nygard SLIMS collection has been exceedingly successful, not only with its target audience, but with fashionable women of all classes, ages and stages in life. This is because there is a SLIM designed for any and every type of woman. There has been a dramatic shift in target consumer to include younger, fashion-conscious women which can be attributed to the creation of this one cardinal item.
NYGÅRD SLIMS help women with many of the common issues they face in their search for some convenient go-to bottoms at an affordable price. From eliminating muffin tops entirely and smoothing the hip and thigh areas to butt shaping/lifting and flattening the tummy with 2.5 or 3.5 compression elastic waistbands. NYGÅRD SLIMS ultimately address the problem areas associated with pant purchasing while helping women find their own personal sexy. NYGÅRD SLIMS will enhance your curves by elongating the legs, adding 2-5 inches in length for a long slender look.
The style choices are endless and affordable, ranging from $49.99-$69.99/pair. In addition, the SLIMS line has expanded significantly to include tops, tunics, as well as vegan leather and faux suede vests and jackets.
NYGÅRD has seen tremendous numbers in sales, selling over 1 million SLIMS, with thousands being purchased in Canada, the US and overseas weekly. SLIMS are available from XS to 3X, in boot-cut, legging, ankle, straight or jegging and in a variety of popular colors and styles.
