As one of the founding corporate members of the LVFC Executive Committee, Cintas will work with the organization to establish Las Vegas as a world player in the fashion industry.

“Las Vegas is a land of opportunity when it comes to fashion,” said Carrie Carter-Henderson, Founder and President of the LVFC. “We’re here to support, educate and collaborate with local designers and help bring their work to industry and professional levels. That’s why we’re thrilled to be working with Cintas, a recognized leader in the hospitality fashion industry with a huge presence in Las Vegas.”

The LVFC members consist of fashion professionals, students, community leaders, philanthropists and organizations that have a desire to diversify and expand the Las Vegas economy through the efforts of the fashion industry. Alisia Pulella, Global Account Manager at Cintas, serves as the Membership Chair of the founding Executive Committee. Other notable members include Zappos Couture, VEGAS Magazine, BESTAgency, Bank of Nevada and more.

With its design studio in Henderson, Nev., Cintas has created designs for almost every casino on the Las Vegas strip over the past 25 years, including the most recent openings for The Cromwell, MGM Las Vegas, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Red Rock Casino & Resort, as well as several other sister properties of Stations Casino.

Cintas will be present for a check presentation for Dress for Success on Sept. 26, hosted by the LVFC and Zappos Couture.

“We’ve worked with several of Las Vegas’s top hotel and gaming executives to develop uniform programs that enhance their brand from front-of-the-house to back-of-the-house,” said Karla Perez, National Director of Gaming, Cintas Corporation. “We are honored to join an extraordinary list of companies on the Las Vegas Fashion Council executive board that share our passion for making Las Vegas a fashion hub of the world.”

During the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), two models from the BESTAgency modeling agency will be on site Sept. 30 at TAO Las Vegas for the G2E Welcome Reception, sponsored by Cintas.
