Learn about the designs and the designer whose fashion creations made a jaw-dropping debut at South magazine’s 50th Issue Release Party.
South magazine’s 50th issue celebration was a success thanks to our many friends, clients, and wonderful sponsors. One of the major highlights of the evening was a fashion show introduced by and featuring the designs of Shelley Smith.
Artist Shelley Smith finds inspiration from her origin in the Mississippi Delta. You can see this in her use of muted colors and the subtle embodiment of the decay that has become representative of the old dying South.

Most Southerners, as denizens of a region with possibly one of the most recognizable cuisines, happen to know a thing or two about food. But don’t judge a book by its butter-loving cover, because while no true soul food connoisseur could ever give up shrimp and grits or fried chicken, Southerners’ palates are in fact varied and embrace fruits, vegetables, beans and nuts—especially those grown from Georgia’s own soil.
But there’s much more to these locals’ deeply ingrained passion for food than the taste of peach cobbler or corn bread. Whether they’re growing, preparing or eating it, these soul food experts use their skills to fuel Southern culture, keep families happy and give back to the community. So here’s to the wonderful people that work hard to create one of the greatest pleasures in the South.
