Charleston Fashion Week 2012 Thursday Night Recap

{Photography by Reese Moore}

Alright, we had another fun show Thursday night at Charleston Fashion Week 2012. I was pleasantly surprised by Copper Penny's (a local boutique) show and wouldn't have thought I'd take away anything new and worth reporting from them. But this hair is pretty cool don'tcha think?

But onto the Emerging Designers. Check out what they brought.

And Sarah Parrott, Luciana Scarabello, & Nikki Poulos from NBC's Star Fashion Series were the featured designers. I met Sarah last year when she was an emerging designer at CFW and absolutely adored her style. Still do. A very wearable collection.

I'd say that CFW judge Lindsey Carter (designer of Troubadour) with her husband Wes on her right and CFW judge Cameron Silver (wearing the hat) are enjoying the show.

Whew, fashion week can be exhausting. I totally hit up my favorite food truck, Roti Rolls, (conveniently parked right outside of the CFW tents) on my way out. I saw some of the models headed their direction too, always good to see that :)

I'll be back soon with the bridal show recap!
