On March 20th, I, and the fabulous Miss Tami Reed of Talking with Tami, will be heading to Charleston, South Carolina for Charleston Fashion Week! Yes lovelies, you heard me right. Charleston, South Carolina is hosting its 6th annual fashion week event; and lil ol’ me (in my best Southern Belle accent) will be backstage for an up-close look at the designers, the fashions, as well as interviews with the judges for this marvelous event.
I did a bit of research on the event a while ago and was pleasantly surprised to know that Charleston is a hautebed for fashion, and Charleston Fashion Week rivals that of New York Fashion Week. Hmmm… Of course that gets me all giddy inside since I have never experienced NYFW and hope to someday attend.
Well, my bags are packed, my room is booked, and I am ready to roll!
Here’s a sneak peak at CFW:
The event will feature daily runway shows, pop-up shops, a style lounge, a Project Runway-esque designer competition, and nightly after parties. Special guests and judges for the event will include fashion designer Mychael Knight; model, actress, and TV host, Vanessa Lachey; fashion designers Chris Benz and Lindsey Carter; media maven Fern Mallis; SocialPrimer.com founder K. Cooper Ray; founder and co-owner of Decades, Cameron Silver; and ELLE magazine fashion news director Anne Slowey. Also, the event will include model judges such as supermodel and RHWOA star, Cynthia Bailey; fashion model Molly O’connell; and founder of the Karen Lee Group and international model scout, Karen Lee Grybowski.
Ok, ok… I will try and save something for the recap; but I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself!
Here’s a breakdown of the Charleston Fashion Week Runway Schedule.
Miss Tami and I will be staying at the elegant Vendue Inn located in historic downtown Charleston, and I’m personally looking forward to experiencing a bit of the Southern charm, warm hospitality, and vibrant history that Charleston is known for… oh, and let’s not forget about the fashion!
Well, we’re headed off to Charleston in the “murnin” and we will give yall the skinny when we return.
Well…We’re back from Charleston… Check out a few pics from our trip to Charleston Fashion Week:
