The Charleston fashion whirl has begun

Charleston fashion excitement began last week with pre-fashion week shows by local retailers. Croghan’s Jewel Box, Bits of Lace and Bob Ellis collaborated on a show. “White Haute Night” showcased local boutiques and designers at Tabbuli Restaurant. Luis Machicao presented a fashion show to benefit Communities in Schools at the Principle Gallery. Sabrina Scott presented her new line at Club Trio. Hampden presented a spring fashion show. I wanted to attend all these pre-fashion week shows, but with so many events often on the same day, I had to resort to pulling a name out of a hat. Hampden won my little personal drawing.

Hampden’s spring collection featured fun, flirty skirts with a modern edge reminiscent of Dior’s “new look”. Hampden does a number of fashion show during the year. The theme that seems central to all their shows is that fashion is for everyone. I am always impressed by the number of women, “of a certain age”, in attendance.
