Some might call it a fashion faux pas, we call it a chance to get creative. 💪Due to scheduling conflicts, our initial March speaker had to cancel. But, the show must go on! 🙌🙌We’re so lucky to invite a ✨NEW✨ speaker to the stage this Friday. Pauline Sokol Nakios is a native of Charleston (her parents owned Morris Sokol Furniture on King Street). After a stint in the Atlanta fashion world, she moved to NYC to launch @lillap and @leoandsage, two women’s #luxury brands that are sold worldwide. She’s heading back to town to mentor top designers and judge the Emerging Designer Competition during @chasfashweek. 💃And lucky for us, she’s making the time to share her story with our community. During our discussion on COURAGE (moderated by fashion & PR guru @elliotcarlyle), find out if she was scared sh*tless to launch TWO brands in a cut-throat industry, and how she balances work and life in NYC. TIX GO LIVE AT 10AM!

Sad news y'all. Due to scheduling conflicts New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis will no longer be speaking at this Friday's  Creative Mornings Charleston talk on Courage. But don't get too down in the dumps — her replacement is just as badass. This Fri. March 16 at 8 a.m., head to Charleston Library Society to hear from Pauline Sokol Nakios, a native Charlestonian and creator of two women's luxury brands, Leo and Sage and Lilla P. Tickets go live at 10 a.m. today. Like, right now.

If Nakios' maiden name sounds familiar, it's because it is — her parents owned the former Morris Sokol furniture store on King Street. Nakios will be in town to mentor top designers and judge the emerging designer competition during Charleston Fashion Week. Her talk will be moderated by Elliot Carlyle.
