Front Row Charlotte -2014

Posted by Carly Gardner on

We were pleased to attend and represent Style Gather at a local fashion show last night. The name of the show is Front Row Charlotte and I believe that this was their 2nd event.  With a concept near and dear to our hearts, this group has organized this event, with all proceeds benefiting a local charity.  Paying it forward by support local small business, and contributing a whooping $10,000 to a charity all while providing a fashion night out??!!  Yes please!  Have they found the magical combo or what?!

Not to mention I haven't even described the best part....everyone, EVERYONE, every single attendee has a front row to the fashion show.  While seats were pre-assigned, there was not a bad seat in the place!  I was able to see each model up close and personal as she walked down the runway formed around the open room.  Now if you have ever been to a traditional fashion show, you know, that short of sacrificing all of your moral values, you will probably be standing in the back looking over all the "important" people who get the privilege of sitting up close.  Well not this time!

We could not help but channel our inner Anna Wintour and celebrate being in the "Front Row." Although in a daring, and might we add, humble move, Ms. Wintour recently took a 2nd row seat at a Paris Fashion Week Valentino show. http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-style/news/anna-wintour-second-row-valentino-paris-fashion-week-201443

All we can say...is she should have attended Front Row Charlotte!   The only critique we have is that they left us wanting more.  While the show highlighted 5 local retail businesses they could have easily used 10!  Sorry to sound like a spoiled child but MORE, MORE, MORE!  Other than that this fashionista is happy!
