It’s royal, romantic and robustly beautiful.  What could be so fabulous you ask?  The new collection by Kukso Koo being showcased this Friday night, August 17th at the Gaillard-Bennet House to benefit the Charleston Walk for Autism.  Be prepared to let your passion for fall fashion go into full bloom with the 33 looks that will be showcased at this exclusive runway event!

The coveted designer works as a design consultant for the fabulous Roberto Cavalli, and in the meantime has created his own seperate fashion phenomenon to be exhibited among the Versaille-like gardens, and pool-side runway setting.  Throughout the party, guests can wind their way through a number of local sponsor booths and indulge in some special party favors! Of course, a party such as this would not be a party without crisp, cool, glasses of vino or bubbly, decadent hors d’oeuvres, and live music to move you through the evening!

Making an appearance at the party and on the catwalk will be Germany’s Next Top Model winner, Hana Nitsche.  Among the 15 fabulous women to be walking the runway that night, Hana will be strutting along poolside with an amazing model from the area’s local Autistic community. As if this soiree could not get more suave and stylish, Charleston Magazine’s Style Director and all around fashion aficionado, Ayoka Lucas, will be the emcee for the night!   To conclude the night, guests will be treated to some inspiring words from a Charleston Walk for Autism speaker as well as from Kukso Koo, the designer himself.  

Clear your schedules and mark your calendars for 6:00pm sharp this friday night, August 17th for one of the most fabulous fashion fêtes of the fall!  VIP tables are available as well as limited sponsorship spaces.  Limited tickets for this exclusive event are availiable at, but dont wait too long, this is an event you will not want to miss!  General Admission tickets are $75 which will include the red carpet walk from 6-7, open bar cocktail party with light hors d'oeuvres from 7-8, and a seat for this spectacular showcase from 8-9.   Then head over to the official afterparty at NV, 48 N.
