The award for the hottest runway event during the Knoxville Fashion Week Fall 2012 events, in a landslide, goes to Jenna Colina’s Swimwear Showcase!

Jenna’s collection is extremely diverse, fun, and looks fantastic, as you can see in all the photos above.

I ran into Jenna less than an hour before her collection took the stage and she was quite the busy-bee. She handled answering questions, directing models, and making small adjustments to her bikinis (there’s not a lot to adjust either, so she had to be very precise!) with grace and ease.

The talented emerging designer Alicia Marie provided the jewelry you see the models sporting.

Her show started with quite a bang as the talented Amber Borzotra began by Read more

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

Knoxville Portraits - Fine Art Portrait

Knoxville Portraits LogoI’m extremely excited to make an announcement that should surprise no one who has been keeping up with the blog in the past two weeks.

Welcome to the latest installment of a weekly movie blog series about the best movies you (probably) haven’t seen. Last week, I featured the first black-and-white film of the series, 12 Angry Men, and the week before, I featured the modern version of Great Expectations, which is one of my favorite movies of all-time.

(The idea is that each week I’ll throw out a movie that I think is really great, but isn’t a huge mainstream hit, or it’s not fresh and likely hasn’t been seen in quite a while—if at all. If you have seen it, share what you think about it—and feel free to rip me if you think it’s not worth watching! Then, in the comments, y’all make one movie suggestion as well. It’s that simple, and it’ll be a lot of fun if you’re a cinephile like me.)

This week, my nomination for the best movie you (probably) haven’t seen takes us to the slums of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The first foreign film nominated for this series, City of God (foreign title is Cidade de Deus)is a gripping foreign film revealing the delicate politics and brutal tragedy of common life for kids growing up in one of Rio’s most crime-ridden favelas. The film’s Portugese trailer is located at the end of the blog post. It is a much truer representation of the style, creativity, and characters in the film. Amazon’s summary:

Self portraits aren’t easy if you’re working solo, but can be fun to play with poses and light at your own pace.

I’m in the middle of a couple different projects (one which I can’t WAIT to show you!), which have been keeping me quite busy lately. But I’ve noticed I hadn’t shot any personal projects in quite a while (aside from these beautiful all-access images from the Historic Tennessee Theatre) and I haven’t had a good shot of me in a long, long time.

Last week was the first of a weekly movie blog suggestion (read: conversation) about the best movies you (probably) haven’t seen. Featured was the film Finding Forrester. I decided it would be a Movie Monday, because it has a nice ring to it and it (almost) has alliteration (alliteration technically requires three consecutive words beginning with the same consonant).

The idea is that each week I’ll throw out a movie that I think is really great, but isn’t a huge mainstream hit, or it’s not fresh and likely hasn’t been seen in quite a while—if at all. If you have seen it, share what you think about it—and feel free to rip me if you think it’s not worth watching! Then, in the comments, you all make one movie suggestion as well. It’s that simple, and it’ll be a lot of fun if you’re a cinephile like me.

This week, my nomination for the best movie you (probably) haven’t seen is a bit newer, but also a bit more independent and definitely not in the American mainstream. Green Street Hooligans is a fantastic film starring Elijah Wood and Charlie Hunnam from 2005 about the “hooligans” that form “firms” to support “football” clubs in England. Amazon’s summary:
