off the record

Nordstrom is about to squash stereotypes and preconceived notions of what “Nashville” fashion is all about.

The retailer is set to present Fall collections from key American and European designers during a runway fashion show on Saturday, October 29, as part of Off the Record, to be held at The Factory at Franklin in Nashville. The fashion show will feature world-renowned designers such as Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Dries Van Noten, Chloe, Isabel Marant, Naeem Khan and John Varvatos, with more names to be announced.

And this being Nashville, the event will unite fashion and music with a lineup up musical performances.

Tickets range from $300 to $1,000 and include a cocktail reception.

“We’re excited to announce our partnership with Nordstrom, a leader in retail renowned for its ability to spot the hottest trends in fashion and design,” said Paul Jankowski, the event’s executive producer. “We both share a vision to deliver a high energy event that will blow people away.”

The fashion show aims to exceed last year’s sold out event, which included collections from Gucci, Kaufman Franco and more. And since this was Nashville, music factored heavily into the mix with performances by The Cadillac Three, Maren Morris, Kaleo, Old Dominion, Phil Vassar and Tommy Shaw of Styx.
