Spring in the Lowcountry is in full bloom! You can feel a burst of new energy as we shed winter coats, boots, scarves and start to look for a fresh new look to usher us into this glorious season.

Every year Friends of Caroline Hospice puts on a fashion show and luncheon that gives the local boutiques an opportunity to share what they are most excited about in the coming spring fashions. In a year where it seems anything goes — from black and whites to technicolor, minimalist cool to maximalist fun — it should be a show that finds something that’s a must-have for everyone!

One returning treat in store for this year’s show is our own local-girl-turned-designer, Caroline Baker, who will be creating a dress especially for this wonderful event. Caroline, who learned to sew from her grandmother, for whom she named her business (Maude Couture), graduated from New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Millinery, but has become known for her custom eco-couture gowns, an interest that grew out of a childhood spent in the Lowcountry and all its natural beauty. Dramatic silhouettes are paired with earth friendly elements creating unique, natural luxury. Designing wedding dresses has become Caroline’s passion and she finds great joy and an enjoyable challenge in “upcycling” vintage gowns!

So make sure you come support this wonderful organization celebrating its 10th year of bringing friends, fun and fashion together in a feel good way.
