Lexus Charleston Fashion Week® Announces “CFW The Events” In 2019

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Lexus Charleston Fashion Week® (Lexus CFW), one of the leading fashion weeks in the United States, is bringing a fresh, new approach to its beloved celebration with “Lexus CFW The Events,” a series of three signature programs spread across the year. The quarterly event dates (March, June, September, and November) will deliver unique fashion experiences to attendees in varied venues throughout downtown Charleston.

Up first is the Opening Event at The Cedar Room (March 22, 2019). A “celebration of style,” this kick-off event will include curated pop-up shops, a beauty bar, the newest in fashion and trends, and more. Tickets will be on sale in early February. Hendrick Lexus Charleston once again is Title Sponsor.

Subsequent events will be:

• June 14, 2019: Women’s Fashion Event at Memminger Auditorium // A multi-media event showcasing top brands and style-makers on and off the runway.

• September 12, 2019: Men’s Fashion Event at South Carolina Society Hall // The finale event will feature the style and charm of the modern, Southern man.

• November: Holiday Shopping Event // details to come.

“As we looked to 2019 and our successful 12-year history, this seemed like the perfect time to refresh and renew Charleston Fashion Week,” said Naomi Russell, executive director of Lexus CFW. “Similar to the progression NYFW experienced after expanding beyond Bryant Park, we are looking to bring a new level of excitement and high-end production to our event. We’re embracing the whole city and spreading the luxe and love beyond Marion Square.”

For 2020, CFW is eyeing a possible combination of weeklong programming and events throughout the city, with a continued commitment to Emerging Designers and its nationally known model competition.
