SPECIAL THANKS TO:










BACKGROUND:
For the past five years, Wilmington, NC-based Style Girl Jess James has hosted a few dozen “Style Swaps,” inviting women to comb through their closets and select one gently worn, still stylish item and one accessory to swap.

Given these eco-minded (re-use), and recession era (reduce) times, these Style Swap events have proven again and again to be just what women of all ages and styles are seeking - a night of economizing and socializing in the spirit of great style. Jess is now hosting Style Swaps in Wilmington, Raleigh, Charleston and Columbia generating buzz throughout the Southeast - and come February 23, she is bringing Style Swap back to Charleston for the sixth Style Swap with the help of PR guru Katie Kern of Circa PR.

STYLE SWAP ON TV?
44 Blue Production Development Manager Arielle Worona is flying in from LA to attend Style Swap Charleston to experience one of Jess James's Style Swaps firsthand to determine if the concept may work as 44 Blue's next style-based reality TV show. 44 Blue's "House of Consignment "reality show based on Chicago-based fashionista Corri McFadden's online high-end consignment business Edrop-off will air on VH1 this Spring.

"It's exciting to think about. If the show were to get picked up, 44 Blue has expressed interest in concentrating the Style Swaps in the South so Charleston would definitely have a big presence." 
- Jess James
