CFW Street Style: Night Three

Julie Wheat




On night three, it not only rained, it poured. Being fashionable on a rainy day outdoors is not the easiest thing to do. Luckily, there are a number of places on the Charleston Fashion Week® campus at Marion Square to take shelter. My intern got to the media tent early last night, and when she met me to pick up my computer, I asked her, "How does it look out there?" She replied, "There's a lot of black, and people aren't really walking around." What this means is that a number of people were taking shelter at the Style Lounge (and bar) or at the VIP tent sponsored by Gwynn's. This made for a hell of a rowdy night once the rain let up and intermission happened. Thursday night was fun.


Now back to what people were wearing. There WAS a lot of black, and even one attendee, ShinHae Yoon, put it all on the line with her shirt that said "To Wear Black Or Not To Wear Black." Enough said. What you wear is always a choice. Like we said on our #CHSFW Day 1 Street Style post, clothing is your arsenal to the world. We also predicted unpredictable weather, and viola—there was rain! Thursday night required clever handling of the elements in many cases, and some people just wanted to brighten things up a little. Others just wanted to hang out and have a cocktail (or four).
