Nashville Fashion Week 2017 has come to a close, but the memories are fashionably floating around our heads. I decided to compile the 7 BEST MOMENTS from Nashville Fashion Week 2017. Admittedly, it was a really cool week. The locations, the designers, and the crowd, were phenomenal. After so many years of presenting this show, it's amazing that the Nashville Fashion Week committee could come up with new ways to make the program fresh.
With that being said, let's get into my first BEST moment from Nashville Fashion Week:
The Show at Union Station - Hands down, the best show of the week was the Emerging Designers showcase presented at Union Station Hotel! Every year NFW hosts an outside show, and I'm excited to see what location they'll use. I've always admired the Union Station Hotel for it's historical architecture. Seeing the hotel decorated for the runway shows was an even better delight!

Everything about Any Old Iron - The Nashville Designers Showcase is always a delight. Truthfully, I'd seen all the designers previously so I wondered what they'd have to offer. Well the designers didn't disappoint, but the standout star of the night was Any Old Iron. Sequins, skulls, and tuxedos, OH MY (especially the sequin). From the designs to the overall presentation, the Any Old Iron showcase was a favorite among all the guests.

The Blogger Workshop - You know I'm always big on helping bloggers be better. So, I was extra happy to see NFW hosting a blogger workshop. Nashville Blogger, Chloe Wen, helped us learn how to 'Make Money While Blogging'. Chloe quit college to become a full-time blogger and she hasn't looked back. Chloe gave us some AMAZING tips & tricks, plus I met some new bloggers. It was a great way to network!

Madness Is, Splashed by D&K, and Shea Steele - I know I already gave a spotlight to Any Old Iron, but I have to give another shout-out to three amazing designers that caught my eye: Madness Is, Splashed by D&K, and Shea Steele. Seriously, if any of these designers want to start making plus-size pieces, I'll be the first in line.
Madness Is presented an ALL BLACK modern collection with clean lines and a simple yet bold statement. The Nashville fashion brand specializes in handmade knitwear and vegan accessories. Each piece told a story without as the models came down the runway. It's exciting to know a designer of this caliber exists in Nashville.
