Nashville joins the ranks of other cities around the country with the launch of an annual Nashville Fashion Week, March 29–April 2, 2011. The citywide event will celebrate Nashville’s thriving fashion and retail community and its array of creative talent. Proceeds from the event will benefit the newly established Nashville Fashion Forward Fund, to be administered by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and awarded annually to advance the career of select local talent with demonstrated experience in a fashion-related field.

Much larger than Fashion Week Nashville was, Nashville Fashion Week will be a centered in Nashville with a focus on building the upcoming fashion community in the city. The community partners for Nashville Fashion Week include the Mayor’s Office, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Nashville Downtown Partnership, and Nashville Fashion Group. Although, the designers have not been announced, I’ve heard through the grapevine that some big names are coming down to present for fashion week. More info to come, as you know this is going to be a great look for Nashville.
