On Tuesday night, The Queen’s Castle was in the building at Marathon Music Works for opening night of the 2012 Lexus Nashville Fashion Week runway shows featuring designs by Valentine Valentine, by SMITH and T. Rains.
Five years ago, Nasvhille Fashion Week was created by Robert Campbell who combined and joined forces with Creative Co-Op Nashville, a team of fashion, retail and media professionals that work to bring the city-wide celebration of all things fashionable.

The evening’s affair not only brought fashions from Valentine Valentine, by SMITH and T. Rain to the stage, but attendees also enjoyed musical performances by Five Knives, Humming House and Brooklyn’s Finest, Shinobi Ninja!
