Victoria Inverso has a Masters in fashion design and a natural, intuitive sense of what will look great on all shapes and sizes. Her award-winning Cannery Row shop, with its modern, industrial vibe, is the perfect natural-light-filled canvas for her gorgeously curated collections of vintage and contemporary pieces.
She's been a stylist since she was very young and her entrepreneurial spirit comes naturally. She loved growing up in a family with five kids around her father’s restaurant, the well-loved Ron’s in Exton.

The How We Build Matters Speaker Series event on September 22nd will equip community members to take action on projects that are seeking in different ways to build an inclusive community.
What’s missing in Kennett Square is not the will to address the urgent needs for attainable housing and equitable access to opportunity. “Angst is high,” says Kennett Collaborative Executive Director Bo Wright, “because people recognize these needs but there’s been a lack of quality outlets for the community to come together to listen to one another and have input on meaningful, feasible projects that address these needs.”
Kennett Collaborative’s next How We Build Matters Speaker Series event is designed to offer exactly that kind of opportunity for community action. Read more here and RSVP here.
