The Big Business of
Charleston Fashion Week
Booked-up salons, what-to-wear tizzies, and designer scouts take over town
written by Melissa Bigner
Half the fun of Charleston Fashion Week® is the pre- and post-parties that get the good times rolling or keep ’em going, whichever the case may be. But what about those pre-pre-parties? That’s where all the hype-building hubbub bubbles up over what to wear, how to style your hair, and just what brand of glamorama you’re gonna get on. Scores of bloggers like Chassity Evans of LookLingerLove.blogspot.com post their potential outfits online; and on Wednesday at Stella Nova before the evening’s festivities, I caught up with stylist Patrick Navarro who was trimming model Justin Walczuk’s locks in prep for the fellow’s 2011 CFW debut in Friday night’s Biton and Sucker Jeans shows.
