And that's a wrap!
The eighth annual Charleston Fashion Week wrapped up Saturday night with not one, but TWO emerging designers winning $5,000 checks and invaluable mentorship experience with their lines.
I absolutely loved Kaitlyn Machos' glamorous collection, and have to admit being a little sad not to see her come out with the crown--but know she will be doing big things. Remember the name!
While it's hard to nail down my favorite parts of last week, I can definitely pinpoint a few.
+ Bargaining with Hunter Bell regarding how I could get her jumpsuit before ShopBop.
+ Meeting Fern Mallis, creator of NY Fashion Week.
+ Running into (again and again) the stunning as usual Miss South Carolina, Christina Zapolski.
The aforementioned coincidentally served on the judges panel for the Emerging Designer Competition alongside featured designers Brandon Sun, Timo Weiland, and Antonio Azzuolo.
My role was to assist with event logistics and production. In particular, working the box office registration tent, overseeing the Sponsorship and Emerging Designer Check-In, and serving as the VIP personal liaison for title sponsor's CEO.
Thanks to the fabulous Naomi Russell, Production Director and Director of Special Events for Charleston Magazine, for seamlessly pulling together a fabulous #CHSFW.
