An Issue to Get Excited About | FOUR Magazine

25 Mar

cover-4v4-cartel

We couldn’t wait for the next issue of FOUR Magazine to hit the stands! But…it was bitter-sweet. The fourth issue of FOUR Magazine, meant the LAST issue of FOUR Magazine. [ Say What!?] FOUR identified creative moments and sought out the beauty in homes, iconic fashion, artistic expression, and diverse culture that dwells within the city.  It was created to showcase timeless imagery and creativity.

To close  the series, co-founders Nicole Camack and Ciara Bird thought it was best to complete FOUR Magazine with the fourth issue. In celebration of the editorial release and farewell, a launch party was held at the New Gallery of Modern Art in Uptown Charlotte. Did you miss the event?  Check out some pics below! Oh, and be sure to order your copy by clicking HERE!

Beyonce Shows Who’s Boss | I’m Not Bossy, I AM The Boss

10 Mar

Beyonce-3227080

Two of my favorites in music and fashion, Beyonce and Diane Von Furstenberg, join forces with other notable women and men to fight against the “B-word”. Now this is not the typical “b-word” that comes to most of our minds, no, this “b-word” is… BOSSY. Several celebrities and civic leaders use their voices to empower young women that it is okay to be a leader, and being bossy (at times) isn’t such a bad thing.  To find out more about the  Ban Bossy campaign, click here! *Cue Music Kelis “I’m Bossy“*

Who’s the Boss?? YOU ARE!

Fashion In the City |Fundraise and Runways! | Front Row CLT

8 Mar

A fashion show highlighting the latest looks for the season is great! But add a charity to the mix, and your really setting trends! On March 5th, Front Row Charlotte raised $10,000 for Baby Bundles, an organization that helps mothers in need with newborn essentials. Attendees felt honored to give back. but felt even more honored when they got to sit their backs in front row seats at the show! Every attendee at the event got a front row seat and an up close look at each runway ensemble!

But the coolness doesn’t stop there – immediately after the runway show, guests have the opportunity to purchase items right off the runway! Five local boutiques were featured: Coral, Coplons, Poole Shop, Social Dress Shop, and Our Place. Pop-up shops for each participating boutique and designer were featured along side the runway.
