Everyone is treated like they are someone at Charleston Fashion Week. It’s the opportunity to act and be treated like royalty. As guests are ushered into the style lounge, they are greeted by free manicures and unlimited champagne.
Ann Yancy from Ro Sham Beaux in Charleston took her expertise in lighting to the runway Wednesday evening of fashion week.
Ro Sham Beaux is a lighting collection boutique in Charleston.
Creator Yancy decided to step outside of her comfort zone and take a chance with clothes.
She debuted her first line of clothes at Charleston Fashion Week.
Her clothes were laced with delicate textures and patterns. Some flowed while others held noticeable structure. Modern, yet classy, the collection consisted of cocktail dresses, gowns, jackets, pants and blouses.
The line took the rest of the show into the emerging designer competition as fashion week guests gradually indulged in more food, drinks and conversation with people they’ve never met.
On and off the runway, Charleston Fashion Week is an affair that appears to come straight out of a high-class television show or movie.
Photographers gallivant around Marion Square, asking anyone and everyone in a nice outfit to allow them to take their picture.
Multicolor lights, loud dance music, a photo-pit and hundreds of eager guests flood the runway tent for the production to begin. It seamlessly flows from one designer to the next, making a fashion show that rivals New York Fashion Week.
Creator of New York Fashion Week, Fern Malice, can attest to the wonders of Charleston Fashion Week. She lives for new designers to showcase their work while local Charleston boutiques get the chance to show off next season’s fashions.
From start to finish, Charleston Fashion Week is an intricate production for everyone involved. As it comes together, it cultivates a week dedicated to bringing people together around fashion and showing off some of the best Charleston has to offer.
