We're midway through the seventh annual Nashville Fashion Week which also means we're midway through Shop Nashville Week. As we head into the weekend, the trunks shows and weekend sales are too abundant not to share!
I hope you were able to enjoy a few Nashville Fashion Week shows this week. I am thrilled that all of the events sold out before the first model hit the runway on Tuesday night. Nashville Fashion Week raises funds to support The Nashville Fashion Forward Fund which gives an annual award to advance the career of select local talent with demonstrated experience in a fashion-related field. This year's recipient is the incredible photographer Brett Warren. I can always pick out Brett's images. They're fresh, beautiful and bold. He's shot some of my favorite campaigns for Ceri Hoover (2016 Nashville Fashion Forward Fund recipient) and Margaret Ellis Jewelry. A few of my favorite shots from recent Ceri Hoover and Margaret Ellis Jewelry campaigns are below. And on top of his talent, he's truly one of the nicest people. I can't wait to see what he creates next.
