Nashville Fashion Week 2012



I was so pumped to get to attend Nashville Fashion Week for the second year in a row.  Not only did I just go, but one of my Nashville bf's and I went in VIP style courtesy of her super sweet in-laws who helped make the whole week beautiful (Big Events).  We got to get swept in before the crowd and sat front row at the end of the runway.  I felt like a celebrity. It was... the bomb! (man, i never have crowd tired of that hip 90's idiom. but for real.  it was the bomb dot com)



The first four designers were (pictured in order above): Jamie and the Jones, Kal Rieman, Sylvia Hiesel, and Magid Bernard -- all of them were simply fabulous.



The music was awesome.  I'll be honest, it made me want to jump up onto the runway and strut my stuff.    Since I was at the end of the runway I was also serenaded with a subtle click click click of camera shutters.  There was some serious paparazzi in attendance!

And the show stopper/ breath taker of the evening, designer Randi Rahm:



I can't tell you how many times you heard a collective gasp from the audience during this show.   Each piece basically blew my mind.  I can't even put into words how much I loved this line.  The details were just ridiculous.  Every dress that came down the aisle instantly sent me into a fantasy world dreaming about where I would wear something so beautiful.  My dreams ranged from Downtown Abbey (the jeweled neutral cap sleeved tiered dress above) to a Taylor Swift video (the gold strapless beaded tool dress) and so much more.

And to end the night...The after party!



Put together by Big Events, the party was way so much fun and glamours!
Dear Nashville Fashion Week, I heart you!

  6. Ok, that looked like a blast!! I've always wanted to go to a fashion show. And I could just see it now, if I ever were those photographers, I'd be stuck on the ground with cramped legs. *newbie and all*
