Barbara Tfank at Capitol

This Wednesday, May 7th, American fashion designer Barbara Tfank will be visiting the Queen City at Capitol from 10am-6pm. Known for her elegant designs using exquisite textiles, Ms. Tfank holds a background of experience in costume design.  More recently, her designs have been worn by First Lady Michelle Obama, singer Adele and actress Nicole Kidman, to name a few.

I first learned of Barbara Fank's designs via Capitol.  I quickly found myself repeatedly gravitating toward her dresses and suits because of the amazing quality and unique patterns and designs of her fabrics.  To me, many of them seem to have a high quality vintage type character similar to my earliest influences; clothing that belonged to my Grandmother and Great Grandmother.  It was an exciting experience to style and see one of her designs from Capitol used for a cover of Carolina Bride last summer.  Not your traditional white, cream or ivory wedding dress, the editorial was a nod to encourage brides to wear whatever makes them feel prettiest...

If you love gorgeous fashion, I encourage you to pop into Capitol tomorrow to meet Barbara Tfank.  It is because of this one of a kind store right in our backyard that all of these amazing designers want to come to Charlotte!   Hope to see you there!
