A few days ago former Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designers JLINSNIDER and Michael Wiernicki became featured designers and local retailers at this year’s Charleston Fashion Week. They have always been personal favorites of mine since I first saw them both present as emerging designers. I am so excited to see the progress that they have made since then. Both designers are graphic and experimental. I feel like their clothes are not for the faint at heart, but I will admit that JLINSNIDER’s designs were more wearable this year. Either way I am still a big fan and can’t wait to see their next collections.
The Charleston Fashion Week 2011 Finale was on FIIIIRRREEE!! I met Fern Mallis, Derek Blasberg, K. Cooper Ray from Social Primer, and other awesome folks. I got to see new friend Brittany Bosco perform her new songs on the runway (check out her music), and got to see who won the Rock the Runway and Emerging Designer contests.
