2013 was a transitional year for sure, here at Angel's Point of View. Lots of work was put into behind the scenes, and other fashion/photo work that will pay off in the long run. However the blog suffered from that change of energy. That being said, I'm looking forward to making some big announcements in 2014 as well as making sure I'm posting far more content then I did this past year.
Last Month I teamed up with Charlotte based fashion mover and Southern Style marven Mike Watson, to interview some of leaders in the Queen Cities fashion scene. Check back every day next week to watch another interview for awesome event, Style Night Out.
Since I deleted the first filming of my Charlotte Street Style Tour episode last season, no one outside of the Queen City got to meet my good friend, and fellow Fashionisto, Mike Watson. That's going to change after this Thursday. I was invited to join Mike on the front row during Charlotte's forth annual Style Night Out, fashion event.
We'll be interviewing behind the scenes, from the front row, as well as live tweeting all night all. Also make sure to join us for off the cuff nonsenses during our pre-show Livestream event. You can watch us Livestream'ing here, the link will also be posted all over our Facebook and twitter pages.
I don't often post un-original content, however I'm a strong believer of support those who support our small, yet motivated Southern fashion community.
Mike Watson is one of my fashion friends based out of Charlotte. He's a artist, as well as a instructor for the fashion program at The Air Institute. When I filmed the Charlotte episode during season 1 of the Street Style Tour, we unfortunatly lost all the footage from our first set of taping including Mike's interview. I plan to make up the lost interview soon, but found this great video where Mike talks about the connection of fashion, art, and its infusion into modern society.
Natasha is one of my friends based in Charlotte, you might remember her from the Charlotte visit on the Street Style Tour. I don't really know how else to put it, but Natasha is one of my favorite out-of-towners, she laughs at my jokes and she's gorgeous. Happy Thursday y'all.
I got some great news to share. I will be the official street style photographer for Charleston Fashion Week this year (this month actually).
It was completely unexpected, and I can't tell you how honored I feel to have been offered to shoot for fashion week in this capacity. You'll still find posts throughout the week here on Angel's POV, however catch most of the updates following each night at the Charleston Fashion Week website. I look forward to seeing many of you in a few weeks in Marion Square.
For the past 9 months (not kidding, 9 months), I've been trying to figure out the best way to write a short post on Rachel Gordon, a friend and designer based in Charleston. I think its part of the fashion world, you make such great connections with people who you only get to see a few times a year.
In the brief time of knowing her, Rachel seems to just be one of those individuals who are so dynamic personally, and creatively, trying to describe them in a few sentences is quite difficult.
To save time, here is how I will describe Rachel for you.
- Rachel is a incredibly kind, beautiful, approachable person.
- Like most creative people, Rachel is a perfectionest - Example " Well, I didn't have anything to wear today, so I stayed up last night and made these pants." ~ Rachel telling me about her outfit after her show in Charleston last March. (See 4th photo down)
- Rachel makes really rad dresses. (See all photos below)
- Rachel would also like everyone to know that her "goddess" dresses are not just for tall skinny people. (my wife's reason not to try one on before. My new reason to make her try one on anyways and hopefully buy one of Rachel's off white, plunge neck dresses. LOVE!!)
- Lastly, Rachel likes sneaking in Southern based Street Style bloggers back stage at shows because apparently we are OK to hang around.
