Charleston Fashion Week 2018

Charleston Fashion Week® is a 5-night fashion event held under the tents of Marion Square in Charleston, South Carolina.

Also coined as Lexus Charleston Fashion Week or LexusCFW as it is presented by Lexus USA as their Top Tier Sponsor, the event showcases Charleston's most fashionable Boutiques & Trendsetters, Emerging Designers, as well as Model Talents across the country. Charleston Fashion Week® (CFW) has fast becoming one of the premier events in North America since it has been founded in 2007.


With this year's event, I was fortunately granted with 2 separate days (March 14th and March 17th) Influencer/Blogger Credentials to attend the Shows. Unfortunately, upon traveling to Charleston, SC from New York City on March 14th, my flight got delayed and later on was cancelled — shout out to Delta Airlines! — allowing me to miss the March 14th shows.

Fast forward March 17th, I was able to convince two of my friends in Charleston to buy tickets and go with me on the show Finale.

On the last night of the event, there were 6 Emerging Designer finalists (Namely: Joan Madison, Kenya Freeman, Patresea Peppers, Emilie Schroeder, Kelly Callaway, and Tygerian Burke) who presented their work on the runway from each night during the Fashion Week competing for the Title and the Grand Prize valued at more than $20,000; —together with the presentation of Featured Designer Yigal Azrouël.

These are some of my favorite looks during the show:
