Noir et Blanc clothing boutique is a fusion of sophistication and edge. Searching through racks and racks of clothing is unnecessary here; Deborah Koenigsberger, Noir et Blanc’s stylist and owner has years of experience dressing her long-time clients, and will personally find the right outfit for you. This boutique carries mostly European brands, such as the French Zapa and Italian Transit, as well as Kaos, which is only available in Europe. But Koenigsberger isn’t simply looking for labels, she looks for long-lasting clothing, traveling to Europe up to three times a year in search of the right merchandise. With fresh inventory coming into the store every two weeks, there’s always something new and stylish on the racks.
Koenigsberger's successful Noir et Blanc allows her to focus on her nonprofit organization, Hearts of Gold, that supports enriching the lives of homeless women and their children. The organizations storefront, The Thrifty HoG, located next to Noir et Blanc, is more like an upscale designer resale boutique.
