Shoe Lovers, you are looking at a one-of-a-kind gown created by Ashley-jane, the Assistant Manager of Operations at our DSW Charlotte store. She designed this beauty to represent DSW during the Charlotte Fashion Week, and we were beyond impressed! So, how did this fashion frenzy go? Let us give you the rundown.
