Spring Trunk Show: Coral

Shopping local goes regional with an upcoming trunk show at Coral on East Boulevard.

The March 14 event features a handful of stylish lines with Southern roots — Marysia SWIM (and Bumby), Jane Pope Collection, Balboa and Troubadour. Don’t for a second think this is typical “Southern” fashion — it’s most certainly anything but.

Marysia creator Maria Dobrzanska Reeves won the emerging designer competition at Charleston Fashion Week in 2009, catapulting her swimwear (and children’s line Bumby) into the spotlight.

Jane Pope Cooper launched her Balboa jewelry line while living in Charlotte. By the time she moved to Charleston a few years later, her work had landed on the pages of Vogue. She now designs a second line, the Jane Pope Collection.

Troubadour’s Lindsey Carter is no stranger to Charlotte. A graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, she cut her entrepreneurial teeth on Carter Humphrey, an upscale women’s golf line she helped co-create.

10a-6p Wednesday, March 14 at Coral, 1405 East Blvd., Charlotte; 704.817.9440
