So, I tweeted about it, I’ve blogged on my personal blog about it and now I’m finally ready to bring the news here, to 803 Markese Street. On this past Sunday, I was in attendance at the UK Model Agency’s Designer Debut Showcase here in Columbia, South Carolina. Scheduled to start at 7:00 PM, the event took place in the Grand Ballroom of the Columbia Marriott, in the heart of our city. I sat front row, VIP representing the blog, and I must admit I did have a really nice time. There were four runway shows: Indira Designs, SC Exotic Creations, The Signature collection, and White House Black Market with a live band, Cassangles, that is based out of Columbia.

I arrived at the event at 7pm, and was shown to the front row. I made a little small talk before things got under way. The first designer was Indira’s Designs who showed a variety of children’s looks. There were a few teen looks and one look for boys. My favorite look of the entire show was the first look. The model, Ashley(UK), looks like a total doll, I just loved it. The second designer of the night was SC Exotic Creations. Models were clothed in all black with edgy earrings. I loved the piece above… you may be seeing them again soon 🙂 The third label was The Signature Collection, who is based out of NC. I was really kind a infatuated with his collection, and his first model, Tulane. She was so beautiful and as you can see she makes the garment move beautifully. The last collection was White House Black Market.

At the show I met designers, models, as well as photographers and other industry personnel. Marquis Bias, a local fashion guru, was there with Ashleigh Armstrong, a PR girl. They are the President and Vice President, respectively, of the Fashion Board of USC. The organization really is working wonders on the local industry. In addition, I met up with fellow fashion bloggers Jai Marshall and Eb Looney. Jai is currently completing graduate work in addition to running a FAB blog, while Eb is a makeup artist in addition to her blog work. I met a few photographers and all the pictures you see are from Mark Green. We have something else in store for you guys though 🙂
