Elliottborough design house Suite 33 is hosting an open house on Sun. Nov. 13 from 4-8 p.m. They'll be showing off their fall/winter collection, including party dresses perfect for the holiday season. The shop focuses on custom design, allowing customers to choose a silhouette and fabric for a one-of-a-kind piece. Many of the pieces will be discounted. Stop by 33-B Cannon St., behind the NotSo Hostel, to check it out.
Hampden Clothing is hosting a trunk show with denim label Current/Elliott. Named after L.A.-based stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, the company was founded in 2008 and has since attracted a devoted (and sometimes famous) following thanks to their modern approach to vintage styles.
Current/Elliott's New York rep Julia Pinsky will be at the trunk show to offer styling advice and show off the newest collection, which includes colored denim skinnies, cut-off shorts, bell bottoms, denim jackets, and classic chambray shirts. The event takes place July 28-29. Call (843) 724-6373 for more details.
Hampden Clothing is hosting a Tucker trunk show on Thurs. April 21. Known for loose-fitting dresses, and spirited '80s-inspired prints, designer Gaby Basora’s fashions have reached international audiences and are sure to be seen by fashionistas on King Street.
Basora is a traveler, mother, treasure hunter, and art enthusiast who gets her inspiration from all over the world. She crafted her first piece in 2005. After feeling that her wardrobe lacked the versatility to represent her lifestyle, she created a loose-fitting silk blouse that would go on to become a trademark of the line. With her new collection, she hopes to provide customers with the versatility and style to represent their own lives. She uses a variety of prints including animal (birds prints seem to be a favorite), floral, and abstract.
This is Tucker's sixth collection. The trunk show will be held Thurs. April 21 from 2-7 p.m. at Hampden Clothing on King Street. Head to tuckerbygabybasora.com to check out the collection and learn more about the creative woman behind it all.
This event got buried in the Fashion Week madness last week, but we wanted to remind you that Billy Reid is hosting a month-long pop-up shop featuring products from men's style and etiquette blog Social Primer.
You'll find made-to-order offerings like monogrammed stationery, cocktail napkins, lamps, and accessories like hats and belts as well as antique books and art.
Unless you’re one of those annoying people that gets all their holiday shopping done in August, you’re probably just getting started. Good thing there are a handful of events this weekend where you can find local and unique gifts for everyone on your list.
Things kick off Friday with the King Street Shop Walk and the NEST pop-up store launch at Cynthia Rowley (see previous post).
Eye Level Art continues their monthly Artists and Fleas series on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. You’ll find original art, jewelry, soap, vintage clothing, and more. Black Bean will be selling grub. Free parking is available in the lot across from Fuel.
From there, you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump from Mac + Murphy, where Candy Shop Vintage (pictured) is hosting a trunk show from 1-4 p.m. You’ll find vintage jewelry and accessories along with champagne and treats from Sugar.
Later that evening, Rogue Wave Surf Shop is teaming up with Roti Rolls for a trunk show/truck warming party. The event will be at 38-A Charlotte St. RWSS owner Rhett Boyd says he’ll have a fresh batch of shirts and flannels as well as vintage pieces for men and women.
Enjoy a car-free King Street from 1-6 p.m. for the Second Sunday on King event. We expect an extra-magical shopping experience, especially later in the evening when the Christmas lights can really shine. We hear there might even be a flash mob.
Moving into next week, Library: Archives of Fashion hosts a holiday trunk show with Jane Pope Jewelry on Tuesday. The event will take place at 105-B Rutledge Ave., and shoppers will receive 15 percent off regular prices.
