Charleston Fashion Week is mere months away, and they just announced the nine finalists of the Emerging Designers Competition Southeast. Read about them here and check out a sketch from each. Six of the semi-finalists will kick off the runway shows on Tues. March 24. Then on Sat. March 28, the top three finalists will compete for the chance to be deemed overall winner — a bit of a change from last year’s show, which didn’t name one winner. The ED shows are arguably the best part of CFW, and we can’t wait to see what these young’uns come up with.
