Memphis Fashion Week celebrates “local and regional fashion through designers, photographers, models and boutiques. Proceeds from official events benefit The Memphis Fashion Design Network.”
I am excited to bring you all a recap of the Memphis Fashion Week events I attended. These events were filled with style and grace. I was immediately hit with inspiration for next month’s series. Also, my style recap will be up Friday for Fashion Friday!
The first event I attended was the Trunk Show were headlining designers hosted a pop-up shop on the Highland strip. This event was packed with stylish Memphians. The location was perfect complete with a patio. There were also freeze models on pedestals giving me my entire life. This event was special because A portion of all sales will benefit MFDN. Take a look below:
The next event I attended was the Featured Designer Runway Shows that took place at Graceland’s Presley Motors Museum. This show featured looks from T I E N A from Memphis, TN, Daniel Maganta from Orange County, CA, This Is Sloane from Austin, TX, Ituen Basi from Nigeria, and Rachel Roy from NewYork, NY. Curvies I shared a couple of my favorite looks from each designer. Take a look below:

The last Memphis Fashion Week event I attended was the Emerging Designer Runway show that took place at Memphis College of Arts. This show was especially amazing because it featured designers who were selected from a call out for sketches last Fall. These designers then had “approximately six months to make their designs runway-ready by selecting fabrics, creating patterns, sewing their pieces, and fitting models.” How cool is that?! Check out my favorite looks from all of the designers below:
