Charlotte Fashion Week-Emerging Designers

On Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the Emerging Designers Fashion Show.
It was the culmination of Charlotte Fashion Week.
I have never really been to a "real" fashion show. 
 Mall fashion shows and sorority ones yes,
 but this was awesome!
  We sat in the front row and therefore could see every little detail.
 
It took me awhile to figure out the best way to take pictures, therefore my favorite collection sadly has no pictures.
Being that close gave me such a new appreciation for the designers and the models. 
 The both have daunting jobs.
The top picture is me in front of the runway. 
 The theme of the fashion show was... When In Rome.
The picture of the dude is my new best fashion friend.
  We sat next to each other and had the best time. 
 The other picture is my red carpet photos.
(sadly the friend that I went with forbid me to put any pictures of her on the blog)


I had a blast and will definitely want to go back next year.
  This is Charlotte's 4th year having a fashion week, 
so we have some catching up to do.

Have you ever attended a real fashion show?
What was your impression?

I attended my first real fashion show last Fall, it was Tory Burch. Absolutely amazing, and the pieces looked gorgeous on the runway.

How exciting for you! I've never been to a fashion show. Glad you had a great time :)

Front row- woot woot, that's when you know you're fashion royalty :) I have a love-hate relationship with fashion shows, I love supporting the designers but am turned off by the snobbery and who's who of it all. LOVE your outfit, sparkles, sheer blouse and colourful baubles, what more could you want?

That's so cool! I've been to a few shows now through blogging - pretty awesome. Although the friend I usually drag along won't let me post pictures of her either. :)
