More than 16 local boutiques came together as a part of Mobile Fashion Week this past August to benefit Camp Rap-A-Hope and the Penelope House. During the week, fashionistas were treated to discounts at local shops and runway shows, one of which showcased three up-and-coming designers in competition for the prize of having their lines sold at Private Gallery. William Bradley took the top spot, and his designs are expected to be on racks in 2012. The competition was so fierce that the shop has also decided to carry lines from runners-up Taylor Yates and Caroline Smith in late 2012 and early 2013.
