If there is anyone in Nashville who keeps up with the fashion scene, it’s Milton White of The Fashion Office. Milton has created quite a reputation for putting together perfect ensembles for best-dressed socialites, well-heeled working women and, of course, original runway and red carpet looks that wow the crowd. Not only does he work with the upscale boutiques and stores in the city to pull the latest looks for his clients, but he also seeks out the latest originals from some of the most innovative designers creating things locally.

With Nashville Fashion Week just around the corner, we decided to highlight a few of the most admirable talents on his radar that showcase just how diverse and special these creations can be. From suits and dresses to just the right amount of sparkle for a special evening, these looks showcase just a peek at the diverse and beautiful locally-crafted garments available to buyers at the moment. From collaborating with a creator to create your own vision, to picking up hero pieces to add extra glam to your wardrobe, you can find an array of offerings for your own collection. We can’t wait to see what these (and all of the other designing talents!) will be featuring on the runways during NFW, but until then we are coveting these statement-making looks from local designers we love.
