WERK the RUNWAY: Cycle 1 - Charles Josef Bridal & Menswear

WERK the RUNWAY's third show featured looks by designer Charles Josef from his Charles Josef Bridal & Menswear collections.

"Charles Josef began to sew and design as a small child with his grandmother, a sample seamstress in the New York Garment District, as his teacher. This childhood interest turned into a lifelong passion and a true calling which shows in every garment that he designs. Charles started his business in Charlotte, designed in Atlanta for 13 years and most recently has moved his business to Asheville. Charles has designed for men, women and children in every category from underwear to evening wear using his classical tailoring as a guide for every garment. His specialty is finely made luxury evening and bridal attire, and he also offers a full range of custom design services."
