Christina Jacuzzo 

Attorney/fashion designer

Think of your typical attorney -- especially a corporate finance attorney -- and toss this image out the window. Christina Jacuzzo is anything but typical. This 5-foot-1-inch "Sicilrish" (Dad is Sicilian and Mom is Irish) attorney and fashion designer is a force to be reckoned with, even in her usual 3-inch heels.

Recently, Jacuzzo represented the Friends of Fourth Ward in opposing Coyote Ugly's application for a liquor license in the Ivey's building uptown. "It was a lesson in government" that was successful: Coyote Ugly is looking for another new location. "I think it was a team effort in the community, and I was the quarterback. No one is going to listen to just Christina Jacuzzo, attorney."

Jacuzzo and another finance attorney Star Ilzhoefer created a women's luxury clothing line, Sua Sponte', which debuted last year at Runway For The Ballet. Jacuzzo's "design perspective is both elegant and sporty, combining historical silhouettes with a fresh twist."

Although she recently finished a gorgeous wedding dress and is currently working on a coat, she's not looking to create a famous line of clothing. She and Ilzhoefer just want "a creative outlet to express ourselves and to provide near-perfect clothing that's created locally." Visit www.mysuasponte.com for more information.

With such a full life, regularly working till two or three in the morning, Jacuzzo has simplified one area of her life: She hasn't owned a car since November 2006 and "loves it." No worrying about gas prices -- she walks across the street to work.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
