Columbia Fashion Week Finale: It's a wrap

Saturday night’s showcase concluded the third annual Columbia Fashion Week, Columbia, South Carolina’s premier fashion week, and it certainly ended with a bang. Every seat in the house was packed. TAPP’s—one of Columbia’s historic landmarks and coveted event venues, which now houses an art gallery and high end loft apartments—was packed with photographers, news anchors, local “who’s who’s,” designers, models, vendors, fashion enthusiasts and fashion supporters. The crowd was seemingly pleased and excited about the finale runway show, as members of the audience graciously applauded the designers and retailers that took the runway.

The evening’s lineup included Yetty’s Closet (Nigeria), Sacchi Couture, Ambrosia Designs, Menakshe by Jayy, Lisa B. Collections, Kemris Collection (Nigeria & US), MayaQoba’s (Jamaica & US), Macy’s, and Copper Penny. None of them were a disappointment. All of the designers’ collections displayed individuality and showed that they have a strong command and deep appreciation of fashion design.

This year’s participation from major retailers, like Macy’s, TJ Maxx, Copper Penny, Wish and Vestique helped solidify the validity of Columbia Fashion Week’s viability. Just the international presence alone, brought Columbia Fashion Week to new heights. One of the attendees even exclaimed, “I felt like I was in NY!” Saturday’s entire showcase made a blatant statement, and that statement was that Columbia Fashion Week is serious about fashion and it intends on making a name for itself among the other successful fashion weeks in the Southeast.
