The next great event is set for Nashville's fashion community - and it's going to put Nashville on the map! Nashville Fashion Week, sponsored by Lexus, will hit the scene on March 29, 2011 and end April 2, 2011. Nashville Fashion Week will spotlight new and established designers from Nashville and surrounding areas.
In the spirit of volunteerism, Nashville Fashion Week has teamed up with several community programs and created the Fashion Forward Foundation 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. The development of this foundation will continue to ecourage the talented fashion individuals in Nashville and help them lauch their lines in the future.
The establishment of the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund was inspired by the important professional development the Council of Fashion Designers (CFDA) provides through programs such as the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. The Nashville Fashion Forward Fund ensures that Nashville Fashion Week is not just a signature high-profile event to celebrate creative talent, but also an ongoing, sustainable focus for philanthropic support.
