The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Nellie Gay Prestwood as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. NAPW is the nation's leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I'm pleased to recognize Nellie with this important honor,” says NAPW President Star Jones. “Her perseverance,work ethic and leadership qualities are an inspiration to all women.”

Nellie Gay Prestwood is the inventor of Teachable Clothing, an innovative, altruistic action that serves a purpose of bettering the leaders of our future: children. Teachable Clothing clothing, an early educational tool that happens to be clothing, puts the focus on helping parents introduce the basics of education with revolutionary design. Teachable Clothing starts with the basics of education from the ground up. “ABC” letters, numbers and colors make teaching and learning stimulating and fun for toddlers and preschoolers.

Teachable Clothing is the brainchild of Ms. Prestwood, an acclaimed Artist and Designer. Her designs have been used by some of the biggest names in the music industry. In fact, when Michael Jackson was 12 years old, he took notice of Ms. Prestwood’s necklace at a business meeting and asked where he could get one. It wasn’t long before Ms. Prestwood would make five necklaces for each member of the legendary group. She had no idea back then that the Jackson Five's hit single, ABC, would become the inspiration for Teachable Clothing many years later.

Fast forward to 2012 and Teachable Clothing has transformed from an idea to a business dedicated to nurturing the minds of children. Ms. Prestwood has acquired patents for all items on the website, which are covered by Intellectual Property Laws. Parents can purchase the full line of letters, numbers and colors that make teaching and learning stimulating and fun for Toddlers and Preschoolers. All fabrics and learning components are eco-friendly.
