Nashville Fashion Week Day 3

I truly enjoyed last night's festivities. Fantastic installations dreamed up by local independent designers dispersed throughout Marathon Music Works made for an evening of whimsical spectacle.
Two standout installations were Tuft by Jessica Jones and Black by Maria Silver!

Tuft by Jessica Jones, this collection is dear to my heart because I had the chance to help her style it with accoutrements by my very own vintage clothing line Parlour, along with accessories by House of Stella, Stacy Pelerossi's fabulous Franklin shop! Jessica's installation was dreamed up by the California sounds of Indie rock duo Beach House. Her vision was of a girl band rockin out on bubble gum pink instruments and the vision was solid. Tinsel dresses, pastel yumminess, NYLON Magazine here she comes!

Black by Maria Silver (aka Poni Silver of the wicked indie outfit The Ettes) screamed sex and rock and roll with it's decadent vampiric edge. Studs, corsets, ladies and gentleman lounging... it's no secret this girl is a badass and we'll be seeing a lot more of her in the glossies!

T. Rains Spring 2012

Traver Rains never disappoints with his fun, fearless approach to fashion. His Spring 2012 collection exudes the kind of humor and sexuality you crave on a runway, with his trademark fashion speedos on the boys and scantily kooky creations on the girls. His inspiration for Spring 2012 came from the beach translating into a shipwrecked siren with hair that would make Dolly Parton green with envy. As for the boys, well, they're just fun to look at ;)

Big thank you to Traver Rains, Galen Drever and the Nashville Fashion Week crew

Music to the eyes.

I am a sucker for a good fashion show. Yep, I am the girl with goosebumps all over my body and tears in my eyes the moment the lights lower and the first model hits the stage. This year's Nashville Symphony fashion show marks my third year in attendance for this decadent affair. I love spectating because It is the one night of the year Nashvillians can truly sparkle in their finest couture and did they ever. I think we have Nordstrom, our favorite retail giant and hosts of the evening to blame for the finery of this event's patrons. Speaking of finery, news of Oscar de la Renta showing his pre fall 2012 collection sent my fashion heart aflutter. In my opinion everything created by Oscar turns to gold, and this evenings show was no exception. The clothes sent down the runway were a combination of classic de la Renta and modern chic with an aim for a the fashion youth. The classic feeling came through with twin sets, pleats and refined silhouettes, while the modern side of things exuded in the juxtaposition of both print, tweed and variations on silhouettes that define the house of O.
Perhaps the shows best quality was the gorgeous finale of candy colored and gilded metallic gowns. I think the audience would a agree the end of the show was Music to the eyes.

Thank you to The Nashville Symphony, Laurie Davis and the staff at Nordstrom for their generosity and impeccable work.
