This weekend I attended the official kickoff party for the Nashville Fashion Alliance at Imogene + Willie as a proud founding member. International supermodel Karen Elson performed along with several special musical guests. It was a wonderful event and a lot of people came out to show support!
The Nashville Fashion Alliance ("the NFA") is a nonprofit organization of like-minded creative professionals dedicated to building a sustainable and globally recognized fashion industry through advocacy, economic development, resources and education. The NFA's mission is to provide designers and industry professionals with necessary infrastructure and support via shared networks and workspaces, streamlined production, as well as funding, operational, and administrative capacities, while at the same time creating new jobs right here in Nashville. Earlier this year, the NFA launched a kickstarter campaign in hopes of reaching $100,000.00 to get the ball rolling, but thanks to everyone joining together as an alliance, more than $109,000.00 was raised, totally exceeding the initial goal. This is a very exciting time for Nashville and I cannot wait to see what happens in the near future!
