DSU alumna Maxine Lewis, class of 1973, has been named among the 2009 “Best of Delaware” in the July edition of Delaware Today magazine.

The magazine recognized Ms. Lewis for providing the “Best Women’s Accessories” in Delaware through her Maxine’s New York Fashions, which is part of the Fashion Connection shop located on Loockerman Street in downtown Dover.

Ms. Lewis is featured in a page-length photo on page 91 of the July edition along with S. Renee Smith, a “Best of Delaware” judge and also a 1988 graduate of DSU. According to Delaware Today, Ms. Smith said that Ms. Lewis is included in the best because of her store’s stylish clothes and one-of-a-kind accessories.

Maxine’s New York Fashions has collaborated with the Wedding Boutique (owned and operated by 1992 DSU grad Tammy D. Robinson) and Top Notch Sewing to combine under one business roof called The Fashion Connection, located at 125A W. Loockerman St. in Dover.
