I recently had a chance to speak with Sarah Poe about some shop rumors floating around the Charleston scene and here's what I found out.
Local fashion designer, Rachel Gordon and jewelry designer Sarah Poe are joining forces to create a new store on upper king. Located at 478 King Street, they are in the process of redesigning the space and will host a grand celebration on Friday, March 2nd.
Three weeks later Rachel will launch her new bridal line at Charleston Fashion Week, as the featured designer. Sarah will be designing a line of accessories for bridal that coordinates with Rachel's designs. Here are a few shots from a preview album found here.

Sarah says, "The store will be open on Fridays and Saturdays to the public and by appointment only the rest of the week. We will host a trunk show the first Friday of every month at the shop, inviting a few local artists to join us and showcase their work. The store will be a home for our designs as well as a focus on our favorite local artists. We will have a selection of artists from pottery and stationary to Shrimp Record's discography and Tshirts. There will be a line of children's clothing, jewelry and much more. I will also have a select line of amazing vintage pieces that I have been collecting."
