The power-duo behind CFG Style Week, Erica Arcilesi and Ryan Philemon, both have a history in the fashion and creative industry. The two masterminds fused their personal passions into CGF Style Week as the answer to advancing the local fashion industry and establishing North Carolina as the fashion hub of the South. In complement to this mission, the 2014 event will feature media partners from across the nation with outlets including: OBVIOUS Magazine, Carolina Style, The Charlotte Observer, Le Rouge Magazine, Southpark Magazine, WCCB The CW, Fox 46, CBS Radio, Elevate Magazine and Today’s Charlotte Women; to name a few.
