This post was ready to share a few days after Nashville Fashion Week 2016 back in April but I just realized this week I never published it! My best friend and I attended the opening night show, East Meets West, on April 5th at Studio 615. After seeing photos from all the shows that week I would have chosen to attend the night 4, City Lights Ready-To-Wear runway, which was held outside and just looked absolutely magical! I don’t think you’ll miss out on any level of experience not attending every show for the whole week, but do a little research before buying tickets if you can only attend one night, so you know what you’ll be seeing.

Since 2011 I’ve been creating sequin embellished apparel (see here, here & here!) and selling my designs since 2014 (see here & here!). I’ve always had a special place in my heart for sequins! Last year, in October, I released my first all-sequin embellished line of short-sleeve sweatshirts to the public! The most popular design was the “Coffee First” sweatshirt and was sold out before I even uploaded them to my online boutique! I had people texting, e-mailing, PM-ing, Tweeting and Instagram-ing me, BEGGING to buy the sweatshirt after I posted the first teaser image on Instagram! Because of that incredible popularity (and the countless inquiries I’ve received since!) I decided to release the Coffee First 2.0 just in time for Spring!
