Such is the case with Rita Miles, a trailblazer who transitioned from interior design to become the visionary force behind Charlotte Seen and the acclaimed Charlotte Fashion Week. With a knack for merging artistry and advocacy, Rita Miles has not only transformed the fashion landscape but also championed causes close to her heart, notably shining a spotlight on Mental Health Awareness through her shows.
