#WhyNFW 2015: Ready-To-Wear Runway Showcase

This week just keeps getting better and better! What a joy to speak with Fern Mallis last night. We're so lucky to have her attention in Nashville for the second year in a row! You know tonight's Nashville Fashion Week Ready-To-Wear Runway Showcase is going to be huge, and I can't wait to see everyone's beautiful faces. How did this week go by so fast?

The fourth night of Nashville Fashion Week will be at the Bicentennial Mall Amphitheater. Designers will include Michael Magnone of Circle of Gentleman, Lagi Nadeau, Megan Huntz, Alfredo Bove of Religion, and Vanderbilt graduate Timo Weiland. I am absolutely over the moon about tonight. I'll be wearing this black rhinestone duster from one of my favorite legendary designers...Manuel. It's such an honor to represent him and his remarkable career for the final night of runway shows for 2015's Nashville Fashion Week. It's definitely one of the high points in my career, and I'm so thankful for Manuel and his team's generosity and support over the years. Click here to see my Local Focus with him, my sister, and Denise Roxen. I topped off this look with simple black accessories from Elaine Turner and sexy fringe sandals by Steve Madden from long-time sponsor, LuLu*s.
