Savannah, known globally as the Hostess City, is the backdrop to Bravo’s newest TV series, “Southern Charm Savannah.” The show, which premiered Monday, May 8, expands upon the “Southern Charm” franchise, which averaged 1.7 million viewers last season.
The cast features six southerners, including Savannah native Ashley Borders, a fashion stylist and creative director who has worked with SCAD and businesses around the world. District’s Editor-in-Chief Emilie Kefalas discussed “Southern Charm” with Borders before the series premiere on Bravo earlier this week.
Currently based in Savannah, Borders said she got involved with “Southern Charm” following a phone call during which she was surprised to discover she was being considered as a main character and not part of the production team.
