In Asheville, the fall season is the favorite time for many. The colors of the leaves turn into beautiful oranges and reds and the weather is often cooler and less humid than the summer months. It is also a reminder that winter is right around the corner. Breaking out fall clothing is also on the agenda. That is just what we have been doing all week at Enchanted Forrest. 

Each day, we have been adding great clothing, footwear, and accessories to our showroom floor. We have such a variety of high end big box brands as well as great collections from local designers that you are sure to find the right look for you. Are you needing something dressy for a job interview? Maybe you want something to comfortable and stylish for an outdoor festival. The next time you are in Asheville, stop in Enchanted Forrest at 235 Merrimon Avenue to see what we have in stock. Be sure to follow us on social media for more updates and let us know if you would like to get an email reminder for our next big sale.

Color Me Goodwill Fashion Show

On March 18th, I was happy to participate as designer at the Color Me Goodwill Fashion Show at Diana Wortham Theater in Asheville, North Carolina. I love fashion events and really love the excitement of designing for them. 

For this event, each designer had to create specific color-themed outfits by using clothing and fabrics from Goodwill stores. My color was white and our team consisted of five wonderful models and a terrific hair and makeup team (Zhenya Lazarchuk and Iliana Guardado). For the event, there were a total of six designers. The competition was strong and the theater was packed. 

I have spent years styling looks for Enchanted Forrest, fashion events, and photo shoots, but I am relatively new to designing. Since I was up against many designers with years of design experience, I was forced to work every night on my designs. I was asked to design for another fashion show this summer, but I just had to take a break and work on the store. Whew! That's a lot of work. 

Goodwill Industries really put on a great event which also featured food from local restaurants and paintings from local artists. When the show as over, the first place award went to designer Malou Cordery and her designer were amazing. Second place went to local designer Leanna Echeverri. After the event, attendees and the design teams mingled in the lobby for photos and conversation. It was a wonder time!

So proud of our team!
