Local Focus: Haven

December 2, 2013

Haven is an inspiring boutique in historic Franklin, Tennessee. Combining what she loves about nationwide shopping and her dreams to thrive in the retail market, celebrity stylist Claudia Fowler has created a drool-worthy shopping experience on picturesque Main Street. A few weeks ago, I spent a rainy Sunday afternoon in Haven with photographer Alden Allen. Enjoy some of my favorite pieces I found in the racks of this stylish hot spot.

After two successful boutiques in Louisiana, Claudia moved to Nashville, where she began her career as a stylist with Amy Grant’s Heart In Motion album and tour. Over a decade later, Claudia has worked with Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Alan Jackson, and many more.

Founded in 2006, Haven houses collections from all over the world. Clothing designers include Alice + Olivia, Antik Batik, Diesel, Elizabeth and James, Free People, Haute Hippie, and more. Hidden amongst the racks are beautiful accessory lines, including Eugenia Kim, Pamela Love, and Tracy Watts. In addition to clothing and embellishments, Haven sells items for interior design from Chronicle Books, Cody Foster, Rizzoli Books, and Wunderly.

Every item is unique and chosen specifically for the woman searching for a worldly wardrobe. Haven’s shoe collection alone makes the store a “sanctuary of style,” and every girl working in the shop is as adorable as they come. Follow Haven on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for instant updates of their latest gems. Thank you to Alden Allen for photographing the shoot, and a huge thank you to Claudia and everyone at Haven for allowing me to run around the store with stars in my eyes.
