The Awards Show venue was a spectacular sight surrounded by clouds and heavenly white decor draped the evening for Carolina Fashion creatives and industry insiders. Charlotte NC hosted the 2022 Awards Show honoring fashion creatives & Industry insiders from NC & SC or those who have business in NC or SC at the Midtown Ballroom in Charlotte NC on May 21, 2022.

This event featured Spring & Summer presentations from H&M. Mrs. NCUS Continental Phaedra Pistone hosted the CFA red carpet along with other prestigious media outlets.

Since the beginning of time art has been judged. In fact, it can be argued that art is only made to be judged, and artists only chase that high of being told that something they spent hours pouring their souls into is adequate. This is especially true within the fashion industry. Although the Devil Wears Prada was fictional, the rare Miranda nod of approval that everyone craves is genuine. Between the MET, Oscars, and Grammy’s, fashion is always being judged, and the designers, stylists, and creative directors along with it.

The Carolina Fashion Awards are particularly special as it brings together those who are figuring out their place in the fashion industry and those who have already found it.

“Winning this award has changed my outlook on pushing myself further.”

Despite the intensity of these award shows and the harsh judgment that those in the fashion world face, it is the chance to show the world exactly what you’re made of that keeps them pushing. For the winners of the Carolina Fashion Awards, this is exactly what drives them.
