Since the end of the recession in 2009, business has been booming in Charleston, South Carolina. The economy throughout the city is prospering and the area around King Street in particular has become a bustling center of dining and shopping activity. As a result, Charleston is now being recognized nationally as a premiere tourist destination. And as the founder of Domicile Real Estate Brokerage, an innovative firm responsible for investing in under-utilized properties on King Street and placing a healthy portion of the street’s retail businesses in recent years, Jennifer Davis is at the forefront of this commercial and cultural renaissance. In addition to their work in the commercial sector, Davis and Domicile have a successful history of brokering grand historic houses — many of which also happen to be national monuments — in downtown Charleston.
Founded in 2010 by Captain Logan Roberts, a USCG-licensed fishing guide, Marsh Wear Clothing is a Charleston, South Carolina-based apparel company that celebrates life on the water. With a focus on quality, authenticity and the use of locally-sourced materials, Marsh Wear Clothing works with artists and anglers from across the United States to produce clothing that truly captures the saltwater soul. The result is an inventory filled with one-of-a-kind designs and a brand that is steadily gaining steam throughout the Southeast.
As a child, Roberts spent his summers chasing fish and small waves on Folly Beach, South Carolina, and by the age of 18, he was a certified captain, running charters and sharing his love of fishing. Dissatisfied with the apparel options available for young anglers, he created Marsh Wear Clothing and began selling his goods at the local boat ramp. Before long, retailers caught on, and today the brand has sales in 36 states across the country.
Born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, author Ryan Graudin grew up on a steady diet of fairy tales and music, and attended a high school that strongly encouraged creativity, often featuring cello recitals in the hallways and impromptu poetry slams in the cafeteria. It was there that Graudin decided to become a writer. After graduating from the College of Charleston in 2009 with a degree in Creative Writing, Graudin and her husband traveled the world, spending time in numerous countries including South Korea, New Zealand, Peru and Kenya.
In February of 2014, Graudin published her first novel, All That Glows, a clever, electric tale of forbidden love. She followed that up in November of 2014 with The Walled City, a dark, gritty and hauntingly-beautiful thriller in which three characters try desperately to escape from a lawless labyrinth.
During the Fall/Winter collections in 2012, model Madison Headrick burst onto the fashion scene during shows for Prada in Milan. Eighteen years old at the time, the Charleston, South Carolina native had been hoping to walk during New York Fashion Week before the opportunity to walk the runway exclusively for Prada came about. After turning heads in Milan with her beauty, confidence and grace, Headrick has appeared in campaigns for Prada and Calvin Klein as well as a diverse array of print publications including Dazed & Confused, Interview, French Numéro, British Vogue, Oyster, V, i-D, and Vogue Italia.
Originally scouted by Tony Perkins when she was 15 years of age, Headrick signed Vision LA while still in high school and, after graduating early, moved to New York and signed with Marilyn New York in 2012.
