This Friday, May 11, we get the opportunity to see the collections of a fresh crop of designers at the O'More College of Design Student Fashion Show at the Factory in Franklin. Twenty-five student designers will send their individual collections down the runway. This is the 14th annual Eloise Fashion Show and it's the grand finale of Design Week, O’More College of Design’s premier annual event showcasing the emerging talent across the College’s four departments.
I'm particularly excited to see Megan Wilson's collection called Re-Invintaged by Ventage Clothing. Megan was an integral member of our back of house team at Lexus Nashville Fashion Week and now we get to see her own collection! The press materials I received say that her collection "takes inspiration from two completely different cultural icons: Audrey Hepburn and singer-songwriter Pink. ln each piece she's sending down the runway, Megan takes the classic style from a golden Hollywood era and marries it with a rock and roll vibe."
"Megan found a common thread between Hepburn and Pink: the colors black and white. Many of the films the actress starred in were shot in black and white; rock and roll's most prevalent color scheme is black and white. Because of this link, Megan's collection is completely dominated by black and white fabrics. Megan used only natural fiber materials in her collection."
We talked a little about her collection during Fashion Week and I can't wait to see it in person! Visit the O'More College of Design website to see bios on all of the designers. Rest assured, there will be a lot of tweeting, tumbling, facebooking and instagramming that night!
