Behind The Seams

We sat down with local stylist Erica Hanks, who's behind Front Row, a pop-up shop meets runway event that fashion lovers are scrambling to get tickets for. (Win yours below.)

 
If you could dress any celebrity who would it be?
I would really want to get my hands on Taylor Swift. I feel like she is on the verge of almost letting go of her teenage closet, based on her recent red carpet hits and misses. I want to mature her taste, and maybe then she will finally keep a boyfriend... that's not 18. 
 
What will you be wearing at Front Row, February 28? 
If I had my way it would be my trusty ripped skinny jeans, heels and a shirt. But I may just get glammed. Watch out y'all!  
 
This spring, every girl needs _______? 
A structured handbag in a fab bright color or two-tone. 
 
If you could switch closets with anyone, who would it be? 
Right now it would be Victoria Beckham. I'm obsessed with her collections and I love her style. That closet would need a drink after I was done rummaging through.
 
Emily Maynard is a client of your personal styling biz - what do you love most about her style? 
She can go from classic, to edgy, to indie, to totally girly, flawlessly.  
 
Which Fashion Week show are you most sad to miss this week?
Naeem Khan. I really love the rich colors and patterns he puts together seamlessly with beautiful beadwork and embroidery.  
 
What do you love about Charlotte women's style? 
[It's] evolving a bit. That's what I love. You are seeing business women, moms, teens, etc. taking baby steps into more fashion forward dressing, while staying true to their Southern roots. 

Join Erica at Front Row Charlotte on February 28 - we're giving away two coveted tickets to the buzzed-about event. To enter to win, follow the instructions here
