I am SO excited to finally be able to share some photos from this past Fashion Week! When I began working with Elizabeth Suzann in January, it was a dream come true- and entirely unexpected! We met for coffee to chat about a project we wanted to work on together and she ordered fabric from me on the spot.
Fast forward to early March and the approach of Nashville Fashion Week. She was busy working on releasing her Spring/Summer line and already had to think about a 10 piece collection to show on opening night! She asked if I might have time to make a piece of fabric for her to sew up in just a few weeks- duh! I sampled a bit and couldn't decide so I left the choice up to her. She chose both!
April 1st was opening night and she was the first to debut her Fall/Winter line. Mallory and I got our tickets pretty far in advance and Kimberly (Sisters of Nature) joined us at the last minute to watch the show! Even Hannah (Jamie and the Jones) was there representing her Alma mater O'More! I was definitely giddy knowing some of my fabric would be walking the runway- but I had no idea just how surreal it would be! I am actually still in awe. Elizabeth had a vision of making her classic Reece sweater in the thicker fabric, and then was inspired to stray from her original plan for the thinner piece. She turned that into a casual but totally stunning 2 piece vest and pant outfit!
I perused the web for various shots of the looks taken by the outrageous number of photographers there, so we have a few from every angle imaginable... I may be slightly obsessed. I honestly never even thought something like this was a possibility last November when I was having a mini career crisis. I am still completely stunned and entirely humbled by how amazing this year has been for me so far. I can't even begin to guess where I'll be in the next few months, things are happening so fast! Ok, enough rambling, on to the pictures already!
