#MEMPHISFASHIONWEEK Media Night

One of the best week's in Memphis is finally upon us--Memphis Fashion Week. Last year, I attended all of the events as an emerging designer and I had such an amazing time. This year, I'm taking a little break from designing and going back to the days of covering as media. Monday, I attended the Media Night at the Lab by Memphis Fashion Design Network. Bloggers and other media outlets were invited to preview the designs of Emerging Designers that will be shown during Saturday's shows , meet and talk with board members and of course network.

I had the chance to catch up with my good friend and mentor Monte Stewart of Beg and Borrow Apparel. It's always a great time chatting about business and life with him.

Tonight is the EMDP Preview Party. You have a chance to preview the Emerging Designers Project garments and shop with Nicole Miller. I'll be there snapping pictures. If you can't make it follow me on Instagram, pretty sure I'll share an Instastory or three.
