CFW 2012 Opening Night

Knockout looks and interesting people kicked off Tuesday night under the tents

I arrived in Marion Square for Charleston Fashion Week's opening night festivities to a good-looking crowd anticipating a lively night. I managed to snap a few pictures before the show began in between conversations with some familiar faces and some new to me blog readers :)

And then of course there was the show. It started off with a performance by Daniel D.

He got the crowd hyped up for the Emerging Designers.

Congrats to all! Tonight's show should be a good one too.
