andrewchristianAndrew Christian, founder of the eponymous menswear line and a cast member on Bravo’s “The Fashion Show,” is scheduled to visit the Queen City for Charlotte Pride, Aug. 23-25.

While perhaps best known for body enhancing and fashion underwear, Andrew Christian has been producing contemporary collections of urban-inspired menswear, swimwear, edgy tees and accessories since 1997. Christian’s underwear has been featured on “Good Morning America” and “Entertainment Tonight” as well as on the pages of the Wall Street Journal, Maxim, New York Magazine and the Los Angeles Times, just to name a few.

Christian will be hosted by SilverFly, a men’s boutique at The Metropolitan. Events include an invitation-only reception on Friday, Aug. 23 and a Pride after party at The Bar at 316 on Saturday, Aug. 24. Christian, and some of his underwear models, are also expected to visit with Charlotte Pride attendees at SilverFly’s booth at the festival.

“It will be incredible to host such a creative designer that has embraced our community,” Fidel Montoya, SilverFly co-owner, said in a release. “SilverFly is excited to partner with Andrew Christian at a time when Pride has become such an influential event in our city.”
