Cynthia Rowley kicks off a monthly series of how-to events next Wed. Sept. 16. The topic for the inaugural lesson? How to rock the runway. The instructor is none other than Trixie Kawasaki, winner of the Stiletto Stampede back in March. Trixie went on to demonstrate her runway skills after the shows one night at Charleston Fashion Week.

As with any event at Cynthia Rowley, delish cocktails will be served, and guests will also enjoy an exclusive viewing of Cynthia’s Spring 2010 show straight out of Gotham Hall in NYC — the show takes place Sept. 11, and the DVD will be overnighted for Charleston guests to enjoy before anyone else.

Store manager Kate Stewart says they’re currently brainstorming the next events in the series, but they may include how to distress your own jeans, create a cheap-but-chic flower arrangements, and how to tie-dye. Best of all, they’re all either free, like Wednesday’s event, or very cheap.

While you’re there, check out the store’s sales on summer clothes, as well as their new fall merchandise. The hottest pieces this season include cocktail dresses (hot pink!), studded tights, and a tutu dress.

Space is limited for this event, so register soon by calling (843) 577-8013.
