In addition to delivering a proclamation in honor of both Donna Salyers and her husband Jim, Mayor Meyer announced the “unofficial” renaming of West 11th Street to The Fabulous West 11th Street in recognition of the local pride and international success of Fabulous Furs.

“The Salyers’ creativity, energy, entrepreneurial spirit – and just plain hard work – is making Covington a special place,” said Covington Mayor Joseph Meyer.

The 30 & Three Celebration also featured a Fabulous Furs fashion show and specialty cocktails, lite bites and desserts by Coppin’s at Hotel Covington.

“Building a sewing kit project into a global fashion business is beyond anything I could imagine and our Luxe Collection could hold its own in Paris or Milan. I couldn’t be more proud of what our amazing team has accomplished together,” said Donna Salyers of Fabulous Furs. “Being surrounded by so many people who have helped, supported and sweat along with me for the last 30 years truly made the evening fabulous.”
