For the past five years, Charleston Fashion Week(r) 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. Aspiring bridal designers interested in submitting should apply online by visiting www.charlestonfashionweek.com. The competition will be open to residents of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Submissions are due Friday, December 16, 2011.
