This year, Chattanooga Fashion Week took place in the Lindsay Street Hall, a beautiful building with over 100 years of history as a church that was renovated into a multipurpose venue.
The featured designs for Friday night’s event were:
XEN SWIM, SOUTHERN GRACE, MONARCH, BOB FRANKLIN APPAREL, BRANDON PIERRE, DESIRAE DANIELLE, SIENNA & BELLINI
Sienna & Bellini was actually a collection of pieces from Valentina Pou and Thali Gottesman, co-designers from Atlanta, that will be available in their new store in Hamilton Place Mall which is set to open in late October.
The featured designs for the Grand Finale Event were:
SHERIE L. NEVETT, ANNA VICTORIA, BRANDON PIERRE, NCHOLE FEROCE, CSERRI, JENI D DESIGNS, SHATTERED STITCH, ISSA SOROGO, SIENNA & BELLINI
One of the lines (Brandon Pierre) was a fusion between West African and American culture. I went backstage to get a sneak peak at them and the pieces were very well made.
And, of course, no CFW would be complete without a #selfie.
