Charketa "Char" Glover,
Stars of Project Runway
Designer. Innovative Thinker. FLYGIRL.
Fashion Designer Charketa “Char” Glover was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan in a home with her grandmother who was a fashion designer and seamstress. As legacy would have it, she quickly followed in her grandmother’s footsteps. Voted "Weirdest Dresser" in high school, she was actually sparking her keen eye for thinking outside-the-box when it came to her sense of style. After high school, Char’s expression turned to designing clothes, and she began reconstructing vintage items into unique, one-of-a-kind creations. With the encouragement of family and friends, she expanded her designs and quickly built a strong following and a large, faithful client base.
Char has created custom designs for confident women all over the world who are drawn to her individualistic design quality, including celebrities such as Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child, Keyshia Cole, Dawn Richard, Lalah Hathaway, Elle Varner and Angela Simmons, just to name a few. More recently, Char was a cast member on Lifetime Network’s Project Runway Season 13, where she earned a coveted spot as a top 4 Finalist. Debuting her Spring-Summer collection at New York Fashion Week, Char’s infectious personality and creative genius was welcomed into the homes of millions of viewers, making her one of the season’s most respected Fan Favorites to date.
