When NY Fashion Comes To Charlotte
While New York Fashion Week is just around the corner, Charlotte's Fashion Week isn't for a few more months. Have no fear, there's a trunk show happening right now in Myers Park with New York-based clothing company Etcetera. Smart, modern and authentic, Etcetera is effortless and approachable, it is the perfect expression of individuality and style, combining clean silhouettes with an understated aesthetic to create easy, wearable clothes. It's classic with an edge.
Over the holidays I had the pleasure of connecting with Master Stylist Claudia Phillips. Claudia is from Chicago and was in the corporate world where she dressed women in her office. She eventually moved to NC to raise a family and took classes to became a Certified Master Stylist. She jumped around with few fashion companies until one day, Etcetera came calling.
Etcetera is a casual and approachable top of the line clothing company that offers you Neiman Marcus quality at Nordstrom prices. The clothes are classic and comfortable and interchangeable (pictured below) for the everyday business woman or the casual girl on the go. Everything is mix and match. You can dress it up or dress it down, which I love. The attention to detail on each piece is superb.
Claudia and the Gotta Have It team of sales associates Mary Martha Beecy, Laura Gaines, Patti Webb and Sonya Barnes can offer you a one-on-one experience. The clothes are designed in New York with beautiful European fabrics. The pieces range from sizes 00 - 16 with a price point from $40 - $600. Most items fall in the $200 range. Turnaround time on pieces is typically within five working days.
E3 is Etcetera's casual brand. Pure and effortless, E3 is all about comfort and style. The woman who wears E3 is strong, modern, and independent and loves to relax while maintaining a stylish attitude.
So how can you shop this wonderful collection? Clients are asked to call or email Claudia and make an appointment with a stylist. Let Claudia and her team create a one-of-a-kind personalized experience to create your spirited style — the difference between buying an outfit and building a wardrobe that’s all about YOU. There is no charge to set up an appointment with a stylist. I have listed her contact information below.

If you can’t make it before the collection leaves town, Etcetera has entered the worlds of eCommerce. Go to claudiaphillips.etcetera.com and shop online or schedule a virtual appointment. The collection is in Charlotte until February 5th, conveniently located in Myers Park. Be sure to call/email and book your appointment today. This would be a fun event to do with girlfriends or a mother/daughter outing.
Also, Claudia is currently hiring. Her territory covers North Carolina and most recently South Carolina. She is looking to hire a new member to her team. No experience is necessary; she will offer you all the training you will need. I couldn't think of anyone to learn more from if you are thinking of a future as a stylist. If you are interested, please contact her at the above email.
Happy shopping ladies!
