Streetstyle at Second Annual Good Business Summit

Streetstyle with Julie Wheat takes a turn as she documents local business owners while they share and present ideas at the Good Business Summit, organized by Lowcountry Local First.

Lowcountry Local First had their second annual Good Business Summit this past week and I was honored to attend as both a local business owner and streetstyle professional. The conference took place at the Charleston Museum and offered a star-studded lineup of successful local business professionals including restaurateur Karalee Neilsen Fallert, Adam Fetsch of Rewined, Katherine McDonald of Lula Kate, and Carrie Morey of Callie’s Biscuits.  Topics such as popup shops, incubation, collaboration across industries, and brand placement were discussed. 


Leigh Magar (not suprisingly, since she was nominated as one of Charleston's most stylish people) gets our style award with her fresh quirky approach to dressing for late summer with a recipe of primarily DIY; appropriate for the event.
