Charleston Pierce is the best runway coach I have ever had the opportunity to work with. He is great at motivating people and getting them to realy believe in themselves.
Me personally, I came to Charlestons Modeling workshop, a shy model, trying to break into swim suit and underwear modeling. Shy, isn't the best way to be in that particular realm of modeling, my goal for coming to the workshop was to bring out my inner rock star, and in just a few classes I feel like much more confident. When I visualize my modeling career now my attitude has changed from 'i can do it' to 'I'm gonna do it'
I have been privileged to attend several of Charleston Pierce's Modeling Workshops, which are charged with energy and excitement. A longtime veteran of runway, print and commercial modeling, Charleston has shared his expertise to create safe place where you can come and see what works and doesn't work for you while receiving real time feedback from a renowned fashion icon and businessman.
I personally have been challenged to step outside of my comfort zone, and motivated to bring my best by Charleston's candid and supportive manner. He has helped me to become more aware of my non-verbal communication (i.e., facial expressions and body language) so that I can better command presence and exude confidence in any environment that I encounter.
It is evident that Charleston is driven and extremely passionate about his craft. He provides you with the necessary tools and advice to inspire you. Most importantly, he personally commits himself to each individual in his workshop. Whether you are an aspiring or established model, business entrepreneur, college graduate entering the work-force, or anyone else looking to project more confidence and control, Charleston will help you discover and reach your personal goals in order to achieve excellence, professionalism, and an unlimited level of success. The invaluable experience can only be described as LIFE CHANGING!!!
Working with Charleston was an amazing experience. As a Fashion Designer and an event producer myself, I've worked with so many people in the industry, but never seen and worked with somebody with such energy, professionalism, and so much fun production as Charleston Pierce and his crew. Any event Charleston produce, big or small, guaranteed success!
Working with Charleston Pierce is truly an amazing experience. Since meeting him just last year, and working with him, I have gotten so much better as a model. He is great at his craft. If you strive for success, to be a star; just get that drive, and make sure you cross paths with this man, on your way there. Nothing short of 5 Stars. Thank you Charleston! Love ya
When Charleston Pierce steps in the room- look out! Not only does he embody a charismatic, debonair, sophisticated charm, but his dashing sense of style, professionalism and wealth of industry knowledge (with over 25 years experience), leaves one assured that they are about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. No matter the capacity, whether you are taking one his biweekly Acting or Modeling Workshops, working with / or in one of his fashion shows, or indulging in his presence at one of the Bay Area's hottest social events you will be enthralled by his passion for the business and zeal for life!
I met Charleston at the 2011 Junior League of San Francisco Fashion Show- Model Training and have since witnessed his business ventures and expertise at such events as his 4-year Business-Anniversary & Fashion Show, the 2011 Junior League Fashion Show, The Academy of Art University Fashion Show, The Academy of Art University Epidemic Film Festival VIP Dinner, 'Best of the Bay' hosted by 7x7 Magazine at Ghirardelli Square, 'PR Summit Conference Kickoff Party' at the Cantina, 'Models for a Cause Fundraiser and Runway Contest' at Circolo Lounge, 'Mission for Remission' Epi Center Medspa Fundraiser, 'Womentv Now Fashion Show' at Kaama Lounge, San Jose, CA and more. Whether he attends events such as these to coordinate, support or observe he always manages to make the 'Jack of All Trades' look good!
With each event I have recognized Charleston's impressive communication/networking skills and genuine adoration and respect toward others; including his models, makeup artists, designers and clients. He exudes a teamwork, 'can-do' attitude which suggests 'if they succeed, I succeed'! He is an active listener who leads by example. If you wish to hone in on your talents in the areas of modeling and acting, or are in need of a successful soiree/fundraiser, or would simply like to become more self-confident, business minded and/or successful, he can help you 'Make it Happen'!
