Last week, I had the opportunity of helping in the press and media department of Nashville Fashion Week. 5 nights, 25 designers (including Christian Siriano), and a special Kelly Cutrone appearance: The week was a massive success. Here are a few of the pictures I have to show for my hometown's inaugural fashion week!
Sadly, I was only able to work Thursday, Friday, and Saturday because of school... The nights I missed:
Night 1: The Pinnacle Building
Designers included: Jamie and the Jones, Akiko, Sylvia Heisel, Kevork Kiledjian, Loretta Jane
Night 2: The Arcade
Designers included: Melissa Tabor, T. Rains, Gado Gado, Betsey Johnson, Ben Sherman
Night 3: Crystal Fountain Church
Designers at this venue included: Olia Zavozina, White Rabbit, Cooper by Courtney Warren, Union of Angels, Christian Siriano.

Day 3 : Kelly Cutrone at The Belcourt
Kelly Cutrone, PR trailblazer and author of "If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You" spoke to Nashvillians on Friday morning at the Belcourt Theater in Hillsboro Village. An amazing speaker with an amazing life story, Kelly can do no wrong.
I was told to get Kelly her latte and two waters from Fido - I was terrified that I might have a The Hills-esque blow up if the order were to be incorrect... But thankfully, it was smooth sailing and it was so great to meet and talk with Ms. Cutrone. (A highlight of my week!)
Day 3: The War Memorial
It was a beautiful and romantic venue!
Designers that showed their pieces included: Coquette, Norma Clare, Julianna Bass, Katharine Kidd, Gustavo Cadile
Andrew Ripp and his wife performing at the Farmer's Market after party
Day 5: The Pinnacle
Designers included: Aman Stovall, Valentine Valentine, Leona, Robert Graham, Steven OO

Until next year's Nash Fash Week... I anxiously await it's arrival!
Oh, how I love horses! I happen to live across from a gorgeous farm. Most afternoons I'm able to look outside my bedroom window and see them grazing from across the street. They are such beautiful animals...
I consider this one of the many, many perks of living in Tennessee!
