Charleston Chalk

Although there were many brightly colored things to photograph during my stay in Charleston for fashion week, I chose to shoot muted chalky palettes as seen downtown. Beauty in the old, aging facades and store windows brought a sense of calm to the whirlwind week.

CFW

I spent last weekend in Charleston, South Carolina attending preliminary meetings for Charleston Fashion Week.

The Post and Courier snapped myself, Kass Ishmael and Josh Ratliff at the CFW party. Charleston's City Paper wrote about it HERE. 

Da Conceicao wore a fierce pair of knee-length, black leather shorts that she made out of lambskin. The outfit hinted at the line she’s working on for CFW that she said is attempting to recreate the power suit for women. “I used to be a lingerie designer so I’m drawn to those fabrics, lace and sheers,” she said. “I did an apprenticeship at a leather company and I learned to work with leather, so I started combining the two. It doesn’t so much have an S&M feel, it just looks like a little tough added on.”
