Fashion – Nashville, TN

Nashville native Emily James has always had a passion for designing. Emily’s mother recalls her saying at the young age of four that she wanted to be a fashion designer. Almost eighteen years later she is still holding onto the same dream. She states, “People envy the fact that I’ve always known what I wanted to do, but with that being said, I’m still figuring out who I am as a designer.” Through her time at O’More College of Design she found an immense love for non-traditional bridal and Red Carpet wear. Her goal is to create elegant designs while playing with more daring silhouettes. Her senior collection, La Femme, reflects her unique approach to bridal and eveningwear. “I want to give all women the option of something that is uniquely their own, not ‘traditional’. I’ve always looked to fashion to express myself. Now, I believe it’s my turn to give that same experience to women and brides alike.” After interning for NYC designer Cristina Ottaviano, Emily fell in love with the City and its contagious energy. She hopes to eventually expand into New York’s bustling fashion industry. She is currently designing with Nashville designer, Cavanagh Baker! ...more
