Winter Showroom on Madison

Very excited to announce that Fanny & June will be participating in The Winter Showroom on Madison.

Open Thursday - Monday, 11-7. November 9 - December 24. Located at 500 Madison St, Suite 101 in Germantown.


Lindsey, from chic local handbag company, Lilyan James, put this pop up shop together to provide a venue for Nashvillians to do their holiday shopping locally this year, and discover a beautifully curated array of local jewelry, accessories and fashion brands.


I am excited to be debuting a selection of one-of-a-kind pieces. Including a group of hand-dyed wool hats, and hand-draped silk turbans.

Wear Local to Iroquois Steeplechase

The question I get asked most frequently is "what style hat do you prefer making most?" For me it's the over-the-top hats worn to horse races. They are the most fun to make and to wear! Ascot and The Kentucky Derby have a long history of spectators wearing fabulous sculptural hats.

In Nashville we have Steeplechase. Hats have long been a part of the Steeplechase tradition. This year I teamed up with Cavanagh Baker (who designs the most stunning dresses!) to create some unforgettable custom looks especially for Steeplechase. Why shop off the rack when you can achieve the one-of-a-kind elegance found at the races in England by shopping locally?

Carolina Herrera at SCAD FASH

SCAD FASH is a welcome addition to Atlanta's museum scene. Couture fashion should be viewed through the lens of high art. Their Carolina Herrera exhibition was a masterclass in form, textile design, fabric manipulation, and fashion history. The hand-sewn details and level of innovation was very inspiring to see up-close.

Photo Shoot with Lauren Athalia

I loved creating hats for this honey-themed photo shoot for photographer, Lauren Athalia. She put a great team of local talent together and inspired us all to be creative with this fantastical project.

The Reclamation

In September, The Nashville Fashion Alliance teamed up with Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee to put on one of the coolest fundraisers this city has ever seen, bringing together chefs, farmers, fashion designers, artists and musicians.

In addition to helping the NFA organize this event, I was one of twelve local designers given gift cards to Goodwill and tasked with a Project Runway-style makeover challenge.

With the only guidelines, that all materials must come from Goodwill, I began my hunt with my hands, feeling my way across the stores in search for any items made of 100% silk. I remade a bias cut ballgown into a cocktail dress and cut strips out of blouses which I over-dyed to make the flowers. The turban started out as a matching shirt and shorts combo, and is lined with a green silk blouse. Working with a challenge was such a blast, and I enjoyed busting out the French Curve and dress form for a change.

From the impressive designs, to the locally farmed flower arrangements, to the incredible dinner, to the Guilty Pleasures dance party, every part of this night was fab!

Fashion Happening Nashville 3

October 15, 2016 marked the third Fashion Happening Nashville! Organized by Hunter Claire Rogers and myself, it brings together local fashion and art, and this time, fashion photography for a one night "happening".

We enlisted the help of Dan Carr, who designed the magnificent wooden and wire displays.

Through this event we were able to raise awareness of local designers and photographers and raise money for the Sewing Training Academy, which is helping train people for sewing jobs in Tennessee.
