2013 Style Exhibition Brings Fashion Designers From Around The US

Style Exhibition

This weekend was the sixth annual Style Exhibition. The Style Exhibition is a local fashion event put on by 3 Jay Productions every spring which showcases fashion designers from all over the country. The first night is a networking mixer, and then the last two nights are full of fashion shows. This was my third time attending the events, and I have written about it in the past.

Style Exhibition 2011

Another event that I went to last week was the Style Exhibition. It was put on by 3Jay Productions here in Columbia, SC. It was a three day event, but I could only attend one day. I went to the networking event expecting to meet some of the designers who were showing in the fashion show the next day. I got to meet two of them and speak with some vendors.

The two designers I met were Valeri Reaves from MyMyApparel and Michele Walden from Michi Knitwear. Both designers make straight and plus sizes, so you know I got excited when I heard that. Both designers were also wearing their wares, so check out the post pictures for a looksee. I also met Gloria Qualls who makes Earth 2 Earth natural beauty products from scratch.
