Light bulbs flashed, cameras rolled, and champagne flowed freely Saturday night (April 26th) at the Levine Museum of the New South in celebration of independent designer Rob Mackey’s new Spring/Fall collection of trendy urban gear.
Charlotte turned Hollywood chic for Mackey’s show. The line, J. Zemar Originals can be described as fun, flirty and sexy with a touch of edge. The models were energetic and fiercely dominated the catwalk in eye popping, sensual styles. At the beginning of the show, Mackey announced that all of the pieces that he designed specifically for the night were held up at customs, hence forcing him to redo his entire collection. For an entire two days prior, Mackey designed and sewed all new pieces just so he would not disappoint the crowd. Talk about tenacity and working well under pressure—independent designers please take note.
The East Coast's Bad Boy DJ Flemingo provided the ideal musical ambiance. All in all, it was a great look for all involved. A portion of the proceeds from the evening went to Sickle Cell Research, making this a true party with a purpose.
