Charles Smith II Fashion Show @ Guapo Skate Park

Posted by    |    March 31st, 2014 at 7:09 pm

Last Friday at Guapo Skills Center in The Cedars, Designer Charles Smith II debuted his SMITH II Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. My friend Heather Lettieri of DFW Style Daily had one of the best seats in the house, next to Dallas fashion experts Lisa Petty, Cynthia Smoot, and Jeanette Chivvis. “Last year, Charles piqued my interest with his obvious talent,” Heather told me. “But with this collection he solidified his place as someone-to-watch. This collection seems inspired by the likes of Rick Owens with an obvious nod to Chanel tailoring. The clothing was daring as usual and nearly flawlessly executed. In just one year Charles has expertly refined his skill and grown into his designer status.” I’ve heard only good things about Charles Smith and I can’t wait to see what’s next for him.

A symbol of perseverance and faith, Whitney Mitchell is truly a role model for her generation. In November of 2010, Whitney became gravely ill with sepsis from an infection and was put on life support. Both arms and legs had to be amputated in order to save her life. Instead of giving up, Whitney has shown incredible courage over the past couple of years and continues to be a symbol of strength.

The “For Whitney” Fashion Show and Fundraiser in Southside on Lamar honors and supports the inspirational young woman with a runway show, silent auction and raffle. The runway show features designers Abi Ferrin, Izavel, Shona, and Elizabeth Anyaa, with a live performance by The Maylee Thomas Band. Hors d’oeurves provided by Lombardi’s Catering, Luna de Noche, Eddie Deen Catering, and So Savvy Events with cocktails including Monticello Wines and Heineken.
