As a guy I realize that I’m not as … interested in clothes as most women. While this has its disadvantages, I’m a guy so as most of you ladies realize, I really don’t care … I mean, notice. But if I was more … interested in fashion I’d be in Charleston between March 14 and 18.
That’s when the 10th annual Charleston Fashion Week hits the runway in the Southeast’s premier city. If you’ve ever wanted to visit fashion shows in Paris, Milan, the Rivera, or one of those other places guys don’t want to … I mean need to know about then you should put this event down on your calendar. Even if you aren’t interested in the fashion you should still consider dropping down to Charleston one or two days.
The Charleston Fashion Week is also about hair, makeup, modeling, and, of course, Charleston. Even if you have no interest in actually going — or your schedule is already booked that week — you should still click here to visit the Fashion Week’s website. Its chock full of photos, schedules, and links that anyone interested in fashion will enjoy.
Of course, you should consider going to Charleston Fashion Week because its only four hours from Asheville and even closer to the Upstate. Its also chock full of incredible hotels — this is actually something guys know about — that would be more than willing to pamper you. But Fashion Week has so much going on you probably won’t spend much time in your hotel room.
This year there’s going to be 35 runway shows, a huge style lounge, live entertainment, boutiques, panels, and after-parties. The Charleston Fashion Week website really is the place to start, since it has the Week’s schedule on it plus the list of who will be there and what they’re displaying. If you’re interested in fashion, cosmetology, modeling, or the bridal business then you definitely need to be in Charleston during Fashion Week. This is the place to network with experts in the field, especially if you’re not interested in traveling to Paris, Milan, the Rivera, or another one of those places guys aren’t interested in.
AUTHOR’S NOTE. I want to thank you for reading this article — it was really hard to write for a guy. I hope you appreciate the effort it took for me to focus on clothes for all that time. Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go watch sports.
