We are so very excited to be welcoming an amazing designer to Sash & Bustle for her very first Canadian trunk show on January 22nd! Project Runway afficionados will remember Carol Hannah from Season 6 of the hit tv program where she was a runner up and fan favourite.
If I had to sum up Carol Hannah’s collection of wedding gowns with a single descriptive word, I would call them “dreamy”. I actually gasped when we unpackaged our first sample gowns, they are that spectacular.
Please join us on January 22nd for a designer appearance and trunk show featuring this very special collection of gowns. Trunk show by appointment only, please contact us at hello [at] sashandbustle.com for available times.

Here is a little bio. of Carol Hannah’s whirlwind rise to fame in the fashion world:
For Carol Hannah Whitfield, fashion is about feeling.
What began as a childhood hobby blossomed into a fairly secretive profession until Project Runway launched her into the public’s eye in 2009. Carol Hannah’s self-taught skill of pattern making and draping combined with learning from watching her Mother sew enabled her to start her love affair with design. As a winner of the Emerging Local Designer competition, Carol Hannah’s first collection of cocktail and evening dresses debuted at Charleston Fashion week in 2008. The overwhelmingly positive response she received from the show gave her the confidence to pursue fashion fulltime and to throw her hat in the ring for Project Runway. A finalist and fan favorite, Carol Hannah showed her just second ever collection at New York Fashion Week in Bryant Park for Fall 2009 and was dubbed “The People’s Champion.”
Although CH moved to New York City in 2008, she still finds inspiration in her South Carolina roots and strives to infuse classic southern charm and grace in her designs. Carol Hannah’s design aesthetic combines whimsy with organic details – raw edges and fabric handwork that seems to grow out of the fabric itself. For Carol Hannah, design is all about how the fabric speaks to her, how her environment inspires her, and how the ever-changing pieces take shape.
Carol Hannah launched her bridal line in Spring 2010, which was met with rave reviews from the press and real brides alike. Other current projects include blogging for People Magazine and the Lifetime Network, hosting fashion events and charity benefits, traveling for trunk shows at bridal salons, and working with brides from her studio in NYC’s garment district.
