Designers Zang Toi and Katharine Kidd will show their collections at Lexus Nashville Fashion Week and both will attend their respective runway shows. Toi and Kidd will also attend special trunk shows of their designs at Gus Mayer at The Mall at Green Hills.
Designer Zang Toi will headline the runway show on Wednesday, March 21 at Marathon Music Works. In 1989, he opened his atelier and was awarded the 1990 Mouton Cadet Young Designer award recognizing the top young U.S. designer of the year.
Toi's work has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Time, Newsweek and the New York Times, and he has dressed celebrities such as Sharon Stone, Elizabeth Taylor, Farrah Fawcett, Kirstie Alley, Patti LaBelle, Gong Li, Eva Longoria, Fergie and Heather Graham.
Katharine Kidd will showcase her collection on Friday, March 23 at Nashville's Parthenon in historic Centennial Park. Kidd launched her eponymous label in 2010 and recently opened her first namesake store in Los Angeles.
Her clothes have been worn by Rooney Mara, Rachel McAdams, Kate Beckinsale, Lea Michele and Emmy Rossum, to name a few. Kidd showed her collection last year in Nashville at the inaugural Nashville Fashion Week.
Both Toi and Kidd will have trunk shows at Gus Mayer while in Nashville. Toi's trunk shows are scheduled for March 20 and March 22. Kidd's trunk show is scheduled for March 24.
These events will provide opportunities to connect runway collections with customers and consumers, underscoring Nashville Fashion Week's commitment to support and encourage the business of fashion in Nashville and Middle Tennessee through local boutiques and retailers.
