As contemporary and trendsetting as Charlotte STYLE Magazine has been since 2008, it’s only fitting that Dapper Stylehouse hosted the Triangle’s 25 Most Stylish People Opening Nominations Kick-off event on behalf of the magazine’s newest publication, Carolina STYLE Magazine. Sharing the same characteristics, Raleigh’s only boutique and bar concept was the perfect setting, with its contemporary décor and trendsetting fashions, to launch the introduction of Carolina STYLE Magazine to the Triangle market on Thursday February 2nd, 2012.
Editor-in-Chief Bridgette West welcomed the many guests, and encouraged everyone to utilize the magazine as a means of celebrating and exploring the many talents living right here in the Carolinas. Many photographers and media personnel were in attendance including international runway coach Alva Page, Carolina Music Awards founder Omar McCallop, and host of NBC’s My Carolina Today style segment Suzanne Libfraind. The evening provided for a great networking opportunity for many local professionals, while guests enjoyed complimentary hors d’oeuvres provided by Dapper Stylehouse’s parent company, Eschelon Hospitality.
Many in the Fashion & Style industry came out to cast their votes for who they believed were the Triangle’s 25 Most Stylish People of 2012. This inaugural event celebrates the movers and shakers in the Triangle who are making a real impact in the community, and gives an opportunity for these leaders to be recognized by a group of their peers. Categories include: Business Leader, Civic Duties/Philanthropy, Socialite, Entertainment, and Fashion & Beauty. The honorees will be announced at the official magazine launch party and awards scheduled for April 2012.
