The highlight of the week was breakfast with Fern Mallis, founder of New York Fashion Week, and her surprise visit by the Margaret Ellis Studio prior to the first Fashion Forward Gala at Oz Nashville where Fern was the featured guest speaker. Fern Mallis, supermodel and songstress Karen Elson, blogger and Nashville Fashion Forward Fund recipient Elise Joseph and Johanna Stout, Director of Brand Partnerships at Spring Inc. and former CFDA professional development manager, were all given pieces of ME jewelry personally selected by Mclaine to thank them for their support and participation in NFW.
