The Bonnington Collection

You may recognize Vicki Bonnington as the woman with the extraordinary costume at every Berkshire Art School (formerly, IS183) annual Spring gala, but Ms. Bonnington is so much more!!

Since its inception, Vicki has been and continues to be a driving force behind BerkChique! – donating her time, energy, and most exciting, her curated selection of personal clothing from her collection to the sale.

Featuring designer dresses, skirts, jackets, blouses, pants, and accessories at a fraction of the original price, Bonnington’s BerkChique! collection has a die-hard following.

“It’s a once a year opportunity that everyone looks forward to,” says event coordinator Tabitha Rasmussen. As Marilyn Bethany puts it in her article, Vicki scouts out fashion “the way a racetrack tout keeps tabs on the ponies.” She is passionate about the positive impact great clothes can have on how one feels as much as she is passionate about supporting area non-profits. With BerkChique! she is able to share these two passions – spreading the joy of wearing great clothes, while raising important funds for area non-profits.

Vicki is very excited to be partnering with Ventfort Hall to bring this beloved event back to the Berkshires in 2024!! She will be bringing a treasure trove of fabulous garments and accessories to ensure that every shopper goes home with something they will truly love.
