Wes Gordon, the creative director for Carolina Herrera was in attendance in Nashville, TN for the Symphony Fashion Show at the Schermerhorn Symphony this past Tuesday. The runway show was sponsored by Gus Mayer Nashville and beautifully executed as always. Ed Nash of Ed Nash Art Studio provided some art for the entrance for guests to take pictures. My friend Chelsea Rochelle graciously joined me to help cover the event. Please credit her if any photography from this page is used. Please see her work HERE
This year, I wore a dress from ASOS that I happened to find over the fall at Buffalo Exchange. I mentioned in my last post featuring my coverage of the Iroquois Steeplechase that I’ve been trying to limit my carbon footprint. I’ve been lucky to find some really rad pieces from the Nashville store. It’s honestly one of the first places that I shop. Surprisingly, I knew I wanted to wear it to the event but didn’t know at the time that the designs that would hit the runway would also have a similar color scheme. I have enjoyed seeing the neon colors in the last few collections of a number of designs the last season. My designer friend Cavanagh of her namesake line Cavanagh Baker and I were definitely thinking alike when we picked the blue!
My platform heels were a gift from one of my best friends who always has a lovely shoe collection. (Thank you for those, Suz!)
The runway collection was a quick neon nod to 60’s mod with the silhouettes and flowers. I loved that the hair was kept decently natural and free-flowing. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the collection.
