Knoxville Fashion Week Photos - Coachman Clothiers

As a fashion-conscious but not fashion-fanatical male, I was impressed with many of the designs displayed at Knoxville Fashion Week. However, it seemed that almost all of the clothing and shows were geared toward the ladies . . . leaving the gentlemen without much of an opportunity to window shop for new styles.

Luckily, Coachman Clothiers spiced up the Friday night show by providing many great-looking pieces for guys (and a few for the ladies too)!

As you can see in the photos above, the fashions Coachman displayed for men has a lot of variety and quality, and there was an added bonus: Read more

Silly Amber

Whether I’m creating a single image, capturing many images and writing about them, or composing a film, I absolutely love to tell a story.

During Knoxville Fashion Week (Fall 2012), I was able to do just that by documenting the process of putting on a runway event! In fact, when I arrived at Knoxville Lighthouse, rockstar model Amber Borzotra pulled in right after me, so I followed much of her preparation process.

A few local teenage models watch as Amber’s hair is styled while they wait for the rehearsal to begin.

The event was the “Emerging Designers Runway,” which featured many up-and-coming area designers of clothing, jewelry, and other accessories. The featured designers included:

Knoxville Fashion Week - Marc Nelson Runway

Knoxville Fashion Week - Marc Nelson RunwayWhile most of the fashions exhibited during Knoxville Fashion Week this Fall were strictly for the women, the Marc Nelson Runway spiced it up with a healthy mix of fashionable men’s and women’s clothing, including a new line of ladies’ tops you can see in the slideshow above.

According to Marc Nelson (MN) founder/designer Marcus Hall, the line is intended to provide clothing with “effortless style” that “bridge[s] the gap between the avant-garde culture of Los Angeles and the traditional style of the South.”

The majority of MN clothing is men’s denim and t-shirts, but we got a special show with some more elaborate men’s items and the simple and fashionable new women’s tops. Much of the MN clothing line is available for purchase on their website.

I’m particularly drawn to this effortless style MN strives to provide. The Henley shirt is one of my favorite shirt styles, and despite not being very in-tune with the fashion world, I do love the “look and feel” Marc Nelson brings to the fashion table for men. Read more

Knoxville Fashion Week started off with a bang through the “Rock the Runway” Hair Show by Belleza!

Before the show began, though, many of the most important sponsors and contributors to KFW were setup on the patio at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse at Volunteer Landing (the Landing is one of my favorite places in Knoxville) displaying their fashions for the attendees.

I was able to meet a few very nice folks including Mayor Madeline Rogero, Rick Terry of Rick Terry Jewelry Designs, Leah Fritts Dailey of Southern Grace fashion and accessories, Amanda Kilday of Reeds of Gray Jewelry, Charles Ottolini and his fashion and accessory line, accessory designer Alicia Marie, and many, many more. All of these sponsors really do have some great offerings, so if you are into fashion, accessories, or anything in between, give them a look! You won’t be disappointed.

On to the main event! The hair styles presented were off-the-wall, fun, unique, and very creative. The slideshow above really shows off the lengths many hair stylists went to wow the audience. An interesting fact about the show: To emphasize the hair over the clothes, most of the models were only allowed to wear fashions made from recycled materials! How’s that for fun? Read more

Knoxville Fashion Week - Children's Runway

Knoxville Fashion Week - Children's RunwaySome of the best moments during Knoxville Fashion Week happened when the kids took the stage on Saturday! Here is a comprehensive gallery of nearly 150 images from “The Children’s Runway” sponsored by Dillard’s that occurred at noon on Saturday, August 18, 2012 in Knoxville.

This show featured designs from Nancy Crowell, Dillard’s, and the unique Keoni Fashion custom children’s line. All of the clothes were interesting, but there were a few kids that stole the show! You can find images of each child that modeled during the event in the gallery above.

Parents of children featured in the gallery: You can purchase images, prints, and products of your child and the entire show!

Details of what we are offering are below, but keep these two things in mind:

  1. If you refer another parent or friend to order images from this gallery, you BOTH will receive 10% off your order.  Contact me for your gift!
  2. If you don’t see a print size or product you’d like to have, contact me and I’m almost certain we can create what you’re looking for.

This Knoxville Fashion Week model had to study for her art history class at an area high school between getting her hair and makeup done and the start of the runway event.

KNOXVILLE, TENN. – I really just wanted to use a date line to give this post some clout!

Last night was Knoxville Fashion Week‘s Emerging Designers show and the emerging designers brought it! I’m no fashion guru (quite the opposite, I’m sure), but I really thought the fashion displayed was quite excellent.

I arrived early to photograph the models preparing for the evening’s runway and wanted to document a lot of the “behind-the-scenes” elements of the fashion show experience. It was a blast and I’ve gotten to meet some really fun folks in the process! (I’m looking at you, models, hair, and makeup friends 😛 )

These are just a few images I had the pleasure of capturing from Day 2 of Knoxville Fashion Week – Fall 2012. I’ll be posting an extensive set next week after all the events have concluded. Read more

Last night was the first event for the Fall 2012 iteration of Knoxville Fashion Week, and I had the distinct privilege of photographing it! It was such a fun evening for me being that I have limited fashion experience. I felt very much like a fish out of water, but I adapted quickly to some difficulties and was able to get some terrific images amid the challenges.

The event last night was presented by Belleza and was dubbed the “Rock the Runway” Hair Show, showcasing young hair design talent and the professional services that Belleza offers. Many of the models had wild and wonderful hair creations that reminded me of the style you could expect in The Capitol from Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games series. Read more
