There’s good news for fans of the cloth­ing line Boudoir Queen, cre­ated by Trail­blazer Award-win­ning de­signer Dawn Younger-Smith. The Boudoir Queen 2013 col­lec­tion is now be­ing car­ried at Wan­der­lust Bou­tique and Gallery, mark­ing the first time in years the cloth­ing has been avail­able at a lo­cal re­tailer.

Wan­der­lust will fea­ture Boudoir Queen out­fits in cre­ative in-store dis­plays each month. Younger-Smith’s pieces were fea­tured ear­lier this year at Austin Fash­ion Week, where au­di­ences gave them a stand­ing ova­tion. The vin­tagein­spired looks were a nod to Ten­nessee Wil­liams’ South­ern Gothic movie “Baby Doll.”

Shop­pers will get a chance to meet Younger-Smith at a Wan­der­lust fash­ion event at 7 p.m. Dec. 28. Snacks and drinks will be served. The event is free.

Younger-Smith has been de­sign­ing for more than a decade and has a client list that in­cludes celebri­ties such as Martina McBride and Shawn Colvin. Younger-Smith has a home stu­dio in the Vic­to­rian district of Smithville and her fash­ion busi­ness name was in­spired by a col­lec­tion of boudoir dolls she owns.

Wan­der­lust Bou­tique and Gallery is lo­cated at 1601 Koenig Lane. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tues­day through Satur­day and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sun­day. The Boudoir Queen’s on­line shop, the­boudoirqueen.com, will con­tinue to be op­er­a­tional.
