About Us

After working 30 years in women’s apparel, MMB Exclusive was established in 2005 to bring exciting designers to Kansas City to provide one-of-a-kind fashions to my customers.  12 years and 262 Trunk Shows later (with 10 shows scheduled for this Fall), my clients have ordered everything from daily active wear to the finest couture from around the world.  A Trunk Show is a special event within the fashion world in which a designer puts on a special display of his or her work for review.  These Trunk Shows will preview the styles from the upcoming season before they are made available to the general public.  This gives the customer an opportunity to order during the event…her “one of a kind” in Kansas City!

I assist you in every step of the way from the ideal purchase, to the perfect alterations, to the on-time delivery.  This personalized attention you recieve is the hallmark of MMB.  And to make all this happen I am able to hand select designers from Europe and the United States who offer something unique to our Kansas City market and that exclusively can be seen and purchased at my Huntington Farms Clubhouse. I bring some of the world’s great designers to your doorstep. Going forward, I will be the only hostess in the Kansas City area for an extensive selection of designer special occasion fashions…cocktail dresses to magnificent ballgowns. Please plan ahead!

I have been privileged to assist 36 Ball Chairman’s, numerous mothers of Debutantes, brides, grooms, and other fabulous clients to find their perfect ensemble. Selections can be made from the current collection or designed just for you.  I take enormous pride in all my clients’ selections as each purchase is handled with discreet confidence — from ball gowns to a daytime jacket.

Please stop by this Fall to sneak a peek and say hello to Ellen Bartels who will join me for each trunk show. Your visit to one of our shows will be full of energy, fun, and laughter, plus beautiful clothing to feast your eyes on. NO pressure to buy—just enjoy a relaxing shopping experience!
