Charleston Krewe Now Accessorizing King Street with Local Flair

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2015 by Lowcountry Boil

1It is no secret that the world is in love with Charleston, her history and her beauty. Now at Charleston Krewe, located on historic King Street, everyone can enjoy the Southern city’s iconic prints on locally inspired bow ties, pocket squares, belts, dog collars, jewelry and more. One of Charleston Krewe’s founders, Cecile Hardy, saw a niche for high-quality, Charleston-inspired products at great price points, something she calls “attainable luxury.” Hardy has already been remarkably successful with NOLA Couture, established 2006 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

2Hardy said, “Our customers feel a sense of confidence and pride while wearing our products. Show your Charleston pride in a Rainbow Row bow tie about sums up our mantra.” According to Charleston Krewe managing partner, Reiss, “Our Charleston-centric designs made in the South have been well-received.” From Rainbow Row, palmettos, the pineapple fountain and shrimp boats to “Ducks and Bucks” for the sportsmen in your lives, there is something for everyone. With the brand’s wide age range of customers, kids, ladies and gentlemen alike can sport an emblematic design year-round. “Charleston Krewe products are an expression of one’s personality and love for Charleston and the Lowcountry,” said Reiss.

Charleston Krewe is continuously adding more iconic Charleston prints to the line.  A portion of the proceeds of certain designs (like the Rainbow Row prints benefit One80 Place and the sea turtle print benefits the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program) go right back into the community.

A New Orleans native who spent a summer at the College of Charleston and well-versed with unique cultures, Hardy joined forces with her brother, Joe Reiss, a College of Charleston graduate and Charleston resident, Elizabeth Hiers, to open Charleston Krewe, sister brand of NOLA Couture. With four partners in the company as well as director of retail, Lauren Hozey having attended the College of Charleston, the connection between New Orleans and Charleston was made immediately. “Krewe” refers to a fun social club that sponsors parties, balls and parades in New Orleans, especially during Mardi Gras. Thus, “Charleston Krewe” was the perfect name to display the mélange of charm of the two cities.

Charleston Krewe is located at 363 King Street in downtown Charleston. For additional information on Charleston Krewe, visit www.charlestonkrewe.com or call 843.203.6253.

Since the early beginnings, Kids’ Chance has grown and evolved, and has become a diverse group of employers, insurers, labor, state government, medical care providers, and both plaintiff and defense attorneys, who are working together to make a difference in the lives of all children affected by a workplace injury by helping them achieve their educational dreams.
