As someone who really doesn't pay too much attention to fashion trends, going to Charlotte Seen's annual Passport for Fashion is always an eye-opening experience. Models walk the runway sporting new threads that range from chic and luxurious to eco-friendly (who knew you could make an outfit out of recyclables?). Don't plan on being fashionably late because you'll also want to cruise the tables of businesses and restaurants showcasing their wares before the catwalk begins — and before you realize you need a new wardrobe. The ticket stub gets you into the after-party at Label Charlotte, too. For more information, visit www.passportforfashion.com.
