Charleston’s Fashion Group International (FGI) has put together an event that all local fashion aficionados will not want to miss! This Thursday, April 19, the Hippodrome will play host to FGI  for their video presentation of Best of Fall/Winter 2012 International Collections from Paris, Milan, London and New York.  Although we would’ve all loved to have a front-row seat at any of these shows and watched the stilettos and loafers storm the catwalk, this video presentation is a great alternative for reliving all of the latest styles as seen on the runway!


In addition to this presentation of collections edited by renowned fashion journalist and FGI Creative Director, MaryLou Luther, attendees will have an opportunity to meet with distinguished panelists to discuss the Fall/Winter trends in fashion, beauty and accessories. Charleston's own Stacy Smallwood of Hampden clothing is among the industry experts on the panel. Joining her are media and accessories experts Karen Giberson (President of The Accessories Panel), Edward Cortese (Fashion Manager, Departures Magazine) and Cator Sparks (Editor of and Columnist for Huffington Post).

The fashionable event will kick-off in style with a cocktail party, music by Entropy Ensemble and food by Social—yum! Do not miss this opportunity to fuel up on your Fall/Winter fashion knowledge! To purchase tickets click here. To get more information on FGI of Charleston check out
