It's that time of year again.

If you haven't already seen the line-up of designers (More to be announced soon!) and marvelous event spaces, here's your chance to get caught up! 

I've included the NFW2013 press release below and hope you'll all try to make it out to at least one night of fashion forward fun. It really is an unforgettable week and I look forward to it every year. I hope to see you all out looking stylish, and you better have your game faces on, because I'll have my camera. Watch out. 

Who are your favorites? Why? If you could choose any designer in the world to be featured here in Nashville - who would you pick and why? 

Just some food for thought - and I'd love to hear your responses!
