Charleston Fashion Week 2014

Featured designers

I am in love with Charleston! Every time I visit Charleston I feel like stepping back in time at sight of the majestical mansions, the scenic promenade and the historic downtown. Narrow alleys, beautiful gardens hidden behind mansions, the history of Charleston is alive with each corner and each stone.

Charleston has this special Southern charm that appeals to people who want to escape the stress and daily routine. Charleston is also the home of the most exuberant, enchanting, elegant, intense, world class annual fashion event in South Carolina – Charleston Fashion Week – The Emerging Top 20 Designers East Coast Competition.
