Fashion Group International of Charleston hosted their "Best of Shows Spring/Summer 2011 R-T-W Collections Trend Overview"  and live discussion on Tuesday with special guests Mary Norton-owner of celebrity handbag line MooRoo, from retail, Taylor Ware-director of Louis Vuitton, from beauty, Jodi Riley-celebrity make-up artist, Laura Mercier. Rosanna Krekel, the former publisher of Life & Style magazine and Glamour executive fashion & beauty director and founder of FGI Charleston sat in on the panel as Taylor Ware switched roles acting as moderator. This event was undeniably thorough, presenting in video format all of this season's trends leaving no detail without mention from Milan, Paris, London and New York. For me the highlight of the night was the fervent dialogue that the industry panel stirred up amongst the attendees that included local retail store owners, designers, buyers and media! There was a lot of reflection on what was actually in style (in many cases contrary to the video), what retailers are carrying in stores (with a few passionate responses from local boutique owners) and one of the most memorable quotes of the night from two agreeing panel members - "I don't read blogs". Check out these street style photo highlights from this night of fashion commentary!
