For starters, we’re showcasing three outstanding local boutiques, each of whom have picked a designer to feature in a special spotlight presentation. For starters, we’re showcasing three outstanding local boutiques, each of whom have picked a designer to feature in a special spotlight presentation. The shops— White on Daniel Island, Fabulous Frocks and The Bridal House of Charleston will send 20 looks from their full roster of designers down the runway, then they’ll launch an additional 10 superstar looks from a separate, single collection onto the catwalk. These featured designers are some of the fashion world’s best, from Alvina Valenta to Theia and Kelly Faetanini. Add in a fourth runway show featuring one of CFW’s past emerging designer successes, Marie Cordella, and anyone into high-end fashion (these gowns start at $1,000 and range into the five figures) will need a fan and smelling salts come March 19. Other changes? A super-cool entertainment surprise midway through the happenings; expanded shopping hours in the style lounge; a super-deluxe giveaway table sponsored by A Signature Welcome; and more sweet and savory treats to sample than ever before.
