Charleston fashion favorite Julie Wheat and her Cavortress line are looking to take over St Louis' Fashion Week by being selected as one of the most talented emerging designers on the vote-based Project Design Competition.

Charleston-based Wheat has already made it to the top 12 semifinalists and needs to grace the top 6 in order to show off her line at Fashion Week on September 7, 2010. Notable lines such as Diesel, Cloak and Dagger, and Black Halo have participated in the Competition in years before.

The finalists are chosen by online voting on the Competition's website, which you can click on over to and vote at here.

You can vote more than once, and voting ends August 17.
