In Travel

Since its inception in 2010, Nashville Fashion Week has continued to flourish year after year. We’ve been introduced to new designers that are now fixtures in the Nashville fashion scene and brought in world-renowned designers such as Christian Siriano and Timo Weiland.

NFW 2018 is April 3-7 and, whether you’re making a trip to out of town or a local, we want to share with you the events we’re looking forward to, and a few of our favorite places to visit!

STAY: We can’t help but be partial to The Gulch, and the Thompson is our favorite new boutique hotel. Not only can you grab your morning coffee at the uber-cool Killebrew Coffee downstairs, you can then head up to the rooftop for drinks and appetizers with a view at L.A. Jackson. Did I forget to mention it’s walking distance to e.Allen’s Gulch location? Lucky you!

EAT: Little Octopus is a MUST for Nashville visitors. Also located in the Gulch neighborhood, their unique tapas-style menu will have you ordering seconds..and thirds! Their bright space boasts pastel pink, wooden detail, and the ideal Nashville vibe. Be sure and order the AVOCADO on the lunch and dinner menu, trust us!

VISIT: All NFW ticket holders get FREE admission to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts from April 2-14 featuring the Nick Cave: Feat exhibit with proof of purchase. “Chicago-based artist Nick Cave (b. 1959) produces work in a wide range of mediums, including sculpture, installation, video, and performance. His creations, bursting with color and texture, are optical delights that can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages and backgrounds.” This exhibit is the perfect way to round out a fashion-fueled visit to Music City. Check out the wide variety of other exhibitions happening now at The Frist!

We can’t wait to see the new designs at NFW this year, and we’re sure to leave feeling inspired. Check out their full schedule of events on their website and don’t forget to get your tickets before they sell out!
