If you know much about fashion, you probably know the name Laura Vinroot Poole. The fashion business definitely knows about her – she’s a common presence in the houses of designers all over the world. She owns three boutiques in Charlotte, and her flagship store, Capitol, has now been around for 20 years. But Laura Vinroot Poole didn’t plan on going into fashion. The path of her life has surprised her, the same way it surprised her family and friends. It all came from one strong desire – to get back home.
