The Carolina Classic Hair & Fashion Show was created in 2019 by professional barber and community leader Antwonn Gathers, a native of Charleston, SC. Hair shows and barber battles are nothing new to him as he's received numerous awards throughout his 20+ years in the industry. He has placed 1st or 2nd in all barber battles in which he has competed.
When Antwonn envisioned the show, he realized hair and fashion are forms of freedom. This event was created for all people, from all backgrounds to have the opportunity to express themselves freely and without judgement. He also realized no one was orchestrating a hair and fashion show combined in South Carolina at the time. Tapping into both markets simultaneously was a no brainer and he decided it was time to launch.
The Carolina Classic Hair & Fashion Show is expected to be one of the biggest attractions in the Carolinas within the next 4-5 years. Antwonn expects his vision to reach people not only in the Carolinas but on a global scale. This event was not created by chance or coincidence but by pure destiny. The Carolina Classic Hair & Fashion Show will be a major event in the very near future and the buzz has already started. It’s a new wave, a new experience and a new way to incorporate
both hair and fashion.
