Here at Basic Projects we love any excuse to gather around a meal. And what better way to meet, encourage, and inspire women than around the dinner table. A month ago, Lizzie Fortunato Jewels, along with Basic Projects, invited twenty-two creative women from Charleston for the fifth Creative Women's Dinner, started by Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato two years ago (read about it in Elle here). What started as a neighborhood meal with close friends to talk small business shop has grown into a  bi-annual meeting of the minds. In the words of Beyonce, "Who runs the world? Girls. Who runs the world? Girls."  

Special thanks goes out to Feast Charleston for the heavenly meal and Olivia Rae James for capturing the night's beautiful moments.
