Photos from the Modest Is More Fashion Show

Last Friday, June 17, 2011, was a day/night of firsts. Around 11:00 AM I found myself on a stage, adorned in a cap, gown, and scholarly sash, hugging and congratulating my first two graduating students. Words cannot describe how incredibly proud I am of these two talented women, and how surreal it felt to sit across from a hundred or so students, moments away from receiving their diplomas. I am so lucky to have the job I do; I don’t think anything could be more rewarding.

That evening I attended the Modest Is More fashion show at Rocketown, which the Art Institute sponsored. I had been held up, finishing grading a few papers, so when I arrived at the show, it was just about to start. Although I had a seat saved for me, I stood at the end of the runway to ensure I a) got some great shots of the outfits to share, and b) got a great look at the clothes myself! I chatted with my pals Will and Alicia from Nashville Fashion Events, commenting on the garments, looks, and designers, and a few others as well.

The show kicked off with an introduction from an American Idol contestant and looks from the featured designer’s, Melissa Tabor’s, collection. I was surprised at how many designers / local boutiques were highlighted. What I thought would be a thirty minute show lasted about an hour and twenty minutes. Although I snapped shots of most of the looks, with over 170 photos taken, I decided to pair that down to a select few. Here are a few of the looks from the Modest Is More Fashion Show:

This model in the purple dress was my favorite of the night. She had such energy, confidence, and spark. This jewel made those outfits shine. 

Charlee Rose

OMG. These kids. I died. Once this first adorable little girl burst onto the runway, the crowd erupted into applause, coos, and screams.
