Fashion Soul

I attended Fashion Soul in South End Saturday night. This event was held at Dharma Lounge in South End Charlotte. This was my first runway event, and it was super exciting because all the talent was local. The crowd was extremely diverse, and the show was overall pretty darn good. My photography, however, was not. So bear with me. I tried to post my best shots, so I had to skip a bunch of outfits. I hope to find better shots online later. If I do, I will post.

First up on the catwalk was Niche (yes the same one I won't shut up about. I love their stuff OK.)

I REALLY love this dress. I wish I could have gotten a better photo for you.

The guys were looking fab. Pretty sure they are carrying Enemy TO Fashion bags.
Love the subtle styling additions: the great tights above, the nude belt and ankle socks below.

AWWWWWWWWWWW! Those shoes!

Pretty sure Stephanie did the hair as well as the styling. How awesome is this?!

The second set was by The Frock Shop. Unfortunately these were my worst photos. The Theme was Parisian Safari and it really embodied elegant adventure.

I really wish I could have gotten more photos. :(

The third set was my least favorite. It was kinda all over the place and sort of matronly. I did like a few looks, but over all not my cuppa tea.

Above was my favorite. The big billowy white skirt looked lovely. It caught the breeze just a bit as it came down the catwalk. Below was my least. This was one of several looks that just seemed to scream "Dynasty" and not in any good way.

This looks like a bad devil Halloween costume, and it's styled AWFUL. If the shirt is gonna show the bra then OWN it. Red sparkly bra please. Or go sure risque and skip it all together.

This collection was by Cigi Guzman. She designs a line called John T. Fellow. I love it. There were bow ties and shorts all throughout. I wonder if Boyfriend knows what he's going to be dressed like all summer. I've been dropping hints. I think the hints are going to become presents soon.

The final collection By Joey Hewel was the most Artsy and fantastical. Kinda looked like it was designed for Lady Gaga. Especially the first one.

I mean come on. Can't you see Gaga at an awards show in this?

This was my favorite look to walk the stage all night. Love it from head to toe! The colors, the capelet, the heels, the tattoos. It killed me a little.

This was just breathtaking to watch walk down the runway. It fluttered like a butterfly's wings (which may have actually been what he was going for as flight kinda seed a theme)

Those two in the front were also gorgeous, but I didn't get good photos. The heels were just amazing. One had butterflies all over, the other had flowers.

The show, overall was very exciting to see local real talent on a stage in Charlotte. It really does show that Charlottetiean artists DO know what is going on it the art and fashion world, and they are eager to add their own voice to the loud world of fashion.
