Congratulations  to  Lauren  Leonard,  the  creative  mind  behind  the  fashion  line,  Leona, for  being chosen  as  the  2013  Nashville  Fashion  Forward  Fund  winner.  Leonard  was carefully  selected  from an  illustrious  group  of  fashion  industry  professionals  that included  designers,  hair  and  clothing stylists,  photographers,  makeup  artists  and models. 

Established  in  2011,  the  objective  of  the  Nashville  Fashion  Forward  Fund  of  The Community Foundation  of  Middle  Tennessee  is  to  provide  an  award  that  will recognize the  individual achievements  of  a  fashion  industry  professional.  The  financial  resources that  accompany  the  award are  intended  to  provide  a  professional development  and/or experiential  opportunity  for  the  winner  to further  advance  their  career  in  the  fashion industry.

Since  Leonard’s  debut  of  her  line,  Leona,  in  the  spring  of  2008,  it  has  quickly  gained  a faithful following  and  is  sold  at  more  than  a  hundred  of  the  most  discerning  and renowned  retailers internationally.  With  celebrity  fans  like  Taylor  Swift  and  Giuliana Rancic,  sightings  in Lucky,  Elle and  People  magazines,  and  hit  television  shows  Gossip Girl  and90210,  Leona  is  becoming  one  of the  fastest  growing  contemporary  labels  in fashion  today.  Best  of  all,  the  entire  line  is  created  right here  in  Nashville  in  Leonard’s studio  and  has  shown  at  Nashville  Fashion  Week  in  the  inaugural year  of  2011  and then  again  in  2012. 

"I  am  thrilled  and  honored  to  be  chosen  as  the  recipient  of  the  Nashville  Fashion Forward  Fund Award!  Nashville  Fashion  Week  has  been  incredibly  impactful  for  our business,  and  the  receipt  of this  award  will  only  further  facilitate  our  plans  for  growth," said  Leonard.
