Meet The Makers
This week we’re delighted to introduce local maker Charles Josef of Charles Josef Bridal, a full-service atelier offering bridal and evening collections, alterations, and custom bridal design services out of Asheville, North Carolina. Charles’ exquisite creations have been shown locally at The Fashion Excursion, a charity fashion show in Charlotte, North Carolina as well as at New York Fashion Week twice a year. It was such a joy to learn about Charles’ inspiration, artistic background and life passions—we know you’re going to enjoy his interview just as much!
My day starts with …
“Wrangling my two dogs into the car and maybe a quick stop at the local coffee shop for a chai latte. Then it’s straight to the studio to work and prepare for appointments with private clients and filling orders. I usually take a look at the work day the night before so I always wake up with a sense of what needs to be done and I get right to it. Breakfast for me and the dogs is prepared and consumed at the studio, as are most meals, and I usually work until 11 a.m. which is when I receive my first appointment. The rest of most days is just a mixed bag of creative endeavors.”
