From March 19–23, 2013, under the tents in Marion Square, experience world-class fashion that only Charleston could present.

Charleston Fashion Week is a five-night celebration featuring more than 35 runway shows, the Emerging Designer Competition: East, the Spring Bridal Show, and the Rock the Runway Model Competition. The fashion extravaganza showcases emerging designer and model talent, making this show a true “pathway to New York.”

This annual fashion event intertwines with the rich culture of downtown Charleston, creating the perfect atmosphere for inspiration, artistry, and awe. Accredited with launching the careers of numerous up-and-coming fashion designers and models, this multimedia event showcases high-end runway shows, an interactive entertainment, chic after-parties, and press events.

Since its founding in 2007, Charleston Fashion Week has added new flare to the fashion scene in the Lowcountry each year. Today, CFW is one of the premier fashion weeks in North America. Last year, Charleston Fashion Week hosted approximately 7,500 event attendees and attracted over 49 million media impressions. Thanks to the popularity of the event and the people it drew from all over the world, Charleston’s economy enjoyed a$2.4 million boost last year. As a result, Charleston’s fashion, design, and retail communities continue to grow and thrive.

Also, in the past, CFW partnered with charities such as the Center for Women, Lowcountry AIDS Services and MUSC Children’s Hospital.
