I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to take photos for Nashville's Out and About Newspaper for Fashion Week. On top of that big bunch of awesome - I got to spend my time enjoying the shows with my best friend and O&A contributing writer, Codie Gentry. (Find her coverage of the week's events HERE and keep an eye out for them in O&A's April Issue.) 

Although I only made it out for Tuesdays's kick off night, Friday night at the Parthenon & Saturday's closing night, three out of five isn't too bad! I met some amazing fellow bloggers who I've been stalking... I mean, admiring for quite some time, several extremely talented designers, and a wide array of fashionable style obsessed ladies (And men!). It's easy to say that this week was straight up awesome.

Local sweetheart VALENTINE VALENTINE by Amanda Valentine

I have to share my local love of Amanda Valentine, especially her use of Space Age-esque fabrics. I love how everything had dimension and texture. Not to mention her crop top designs, which thrilled me. I'm the biggest fan of cropped tops. Ever. Now if only I could get my hands on one of those brilliant iridescent skirts, my life would be perfect. 

I was disappointed my camera decided to be unmanageable during the BYSMITH + T.Rains shows, so I only ended up with a few photos. 

BySmith was simple and classic and had a lot of mass appeal. There were a lot of bright jewel toned colors and shimmering fabrics combined with basic shapes that could flatter nearly any body. 

T.RAINS, who is also the former co-creator of Heatherettewas quite the visual experience, employing bright hair colors, sequins, full ball gowns and flashy men's wear. By flashy, I mean a lot of hot guys in speedos. No complaints here. 

Since my photos were lacking for kick off night, you can check out the official NFW Photo Galleries for more.
