“Style Exhibition” Fashion Show – Columbia 2013

The 6th annual “Style Exhibition” fashion show in Columbia, South Carolina was a three day celebration of fashion, beauty and talent. I was very excited to attend this event, to meet the designers and the extraordinary people behind the scene.  It sure feels great to be surrounded by fashion lovers and learn more about the driving force behind the designers.

The ‘Style Exhibition’ 2013 fashion show theme was “Concordia”, from the Latin “harmony” which is one of the core axioms in design. Harmony is a principle, a goal to reach when adding together different elements of style and design. Just like the notes in music, fashion needs “concordia,” agreement and consonance in color, shape, fabric so that the diversity of the elements involved contribute to the unity of the final product. Each designer featured in the “Style Exhibition” Fashion Show were able to create skillful combinations, bringing their collections to balance, rhythm, scale and proportions that ultimately led to harmony.

The Friday night Trendsetter’s showcase  was an opportunity for new designers to present their concepts and embark for a new journey in the fashion industry. Attractive models  showcased a variety of designs on the runway, including men’s wear, ready-to-wear, swimwear collection as well as more innovative, truly avant-garde ones presented by Dupp & Swat, Dhakmani, Stylon & Blvd, Carlespie Couture & Accessories, and Camille Jeanay.
