The energy backstage on Wednesday night was noticeably different from the night before: everything felt more relaxed, looser, more energetic.
Voluminous, flowing ringlets, slashes of bright red eye makeup, ethereal blue eyeliner wings, and enormous braids were only some of the looks found backstage at Charleston Fashion Week on Tuesday.
After spending the past 53 weeks living out of a suitcase while wandering across five continents, former society editor Ida Becker was happy to stand in for Charleston society editor Bryan Hunter at this oh-so-fashionable event during Charleston Fashion Week.
Okay, so I am finally starting my blog! I didn’t dare post it yesterday lest everyone think it an April Fool’s prank. No joke, but I have to admit I’ve been dragging my feet on this blog thing because, frankly, I have perceived the concept as, well, self-indulgent.
To wrap up this year's CFW, I decided to rehash a few favorite moments. The trouble, of course, was condensing all my great memories from this year's Charleston Fashion Week into a selection of 25.
I’m not going to lie, I’m a little exhausted from last night’s fabulous after-party at Music Farm, but I have no idea what a bridal couture show is going to entail, so I arrive at the tents a little earlier than normal to scope things out.
It’s time for another night of CFW runway shows! I’m back at the tents, and the first thing I notice is how many people there are.
It's my third night of CFW runway shows! I follow my routine by perusing the gathering crowd under the tent before heading backstage to check out the behind-the-scenes madness.
