Nashville Fashion Week, which benefits the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund at the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, will take place April 7-11 at several venues and locations throughout the city. Ticket prices ranging from $20 for individual events to $275 for an All Access Pass are available now via NowPlayingNashville.com.
This year’s recipient of the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund is local accessories designer Ceri Hoover. The first accessory designer to be selected, Hoover’s bags can now found in over 150 retails stores nationwide as well as in her Marathon Village studio showroom in Nashville and at cerihoover.com.
As NowPlayingNashville.com is an initiative of the Community Foundation, we’ll be around all week, looking fashionable (we hope), checking tickets at the door, taking photos and more. It’s going to be fun, and if you’re interested in fashion and the business of fashion, highly informative and educational. You’ll certainly want to check out the panels. Be sure to say hello if you run into us. Let us what you’re up to, what other events you’re looking forward to, and how else we can help you best take advantage of the diversity of events in Nashville.
