Charleston Fashion Week's Spring Bridal Show debuts its first-ever Emerging Bridal Designer competition on March 24, 2012!
For the past five years, Charleston Fashion Week has served as a platform for emerging talent to showcase their designs and collections to industry experts, press, and the public.
In addition to five nights of shows, CFW, along with Charleston Weddings magazine, also hosts a standing-room-only daytime bridal event featuring established, high-end regional and national designers.
Next year, the white gloves will come off when the Spring Bridal Show debuts its first-ever Emerging Bridal Designer competition.
The winner will headline his or her own fully produced runway show during the Charleston Weddings magazine Spring Bridal Show, with a collection of 10-12 bridal gowns and/or wedding party wear on March 24th.
The competition will be open to residents of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Submissions are due Friday, December 16, 2011.
Held March 20-24, 2012 under the tents in Marion Square in Charleston, SC, Charleston Fashion Week will feature more than 40 runway shows, the Spring Bridal Show, Emerging Designer Competition: East, and Rock the Runway Model Competition.
Named a Top 20 Event for March by the Southeast Tourism Society, this multimedia event presents high-end runway shows, interactive entertainment, city-wide shopping events, daily Pop-up Shops, and charity events.
