Year to Date
Charlotte Seen is responsible for producing Charlotte’s premier high-end fashion shows and galas/balls. Each year we host four major events; Passport for Fashion, Charlotte Fashion Week, The Seen Ball, and The Fashion Seen Ball. Charlotte Seen has been a driving force in the Charlotte Hospitality and Tourism with over 50,000 attendees to their show over a 5 year span.
Charlotte Seen provides the opportunity for local and non-local models, fashion designers and hair and makeup artists to display their extraordinary talents to thousands of admirers, customers, scouts on a grand scale, as well as give an opportunity to sponsors and supporters to grow their brand, product awareness and network with prosperous and affluent people of business and the community. Each of these events creates an experience that attendees can indulge in through upscale venues, elegant decor, white glove service and a one of a kind production.
Year after year attendees rave about the experience of a lifetime. The Charlotte Seen audience returns each year to see what emerging designers have burst on to the fashion seen, what their favorite designers are showcasing each season, and what extreme hair and makeup designs can be brought to life. This creates a loyal following as well as attracts thousands of new attendees each year.
The attendees, participants and volunteers have grown to become not only an audience but friends and family of the Charlotte Seen brand. Each of these elite fashion events provides a unique platform for our sponsors to reach their audience in addition to the already hundreds of loyal fans attending Charlotte Seen fashion events. It also provides a stepping stone to a market not yet tapped in Charlotte and its surrounding areas.
