Welcome to Charleston Fashion Week Bull’s Illume Exhibit and Emerging Fashion Designers event, that is one of the colorful Fashion Weeks around the world.
Red Bull arranged beautiful location for the Illume Exhibit at Marinon Square Museum along with Charleston Fashion Week 2011/2012. On Friday night, the photographic display met a huge welcome, with crowds of people surrounding the illuminated images by 50 winning action and sport photographers whose works were chosen from 22,000 entries. A global effort with photos selected from all over the world, the exhibit has made its home in the Lowcountry for the second stop on its U.S. tour. Friday’s opening event set the tone for Charleston Fashion Week 2011/2012 as we danced in Marion Square under the stars to the tunes of the CFW music director Arthur Brouthers. And the party continues as people still gather each night to check out the exhibit, so it’s not too late to get in on the action!
On Sunday evening, CFW’s Emerging Designers arrived in town, and Lowcountry Aids Services threw an incredible welcome party on the rooftop of the swanky Restoration on King with delicious bites from Rice Market, bubbles from Korbel, and wines from Little Black Dress. Of course, it felt very Project Runway-esque, as every season of this hit TV show begins with the designers gathering on a rooftop. And what better way to introduce the designers to Charleston than with a gorgeous view from above? As Tim Gunn would say, “Designers” let the competition begin!
