New Orleans Fashion Week kicks off THIS SATURDAY and I have a few exciting things to share with you before all the fashion madness ensues.
Kicking off the week of shows, workshops, and parties is the Season 6 Kickoff Celebration on Saturday that you will not want to miss! On Wednesday, head over to the W Hotel French Quarter for some Retail Therapy for a night of martinis, manicures and shopping from your fave boutiques.
But first, check out all of the amazing designers that will be showing this season.
Then take a look at the schedule and choose which shows you want to attend, and RSVP to each.
Personally, I am most excited about my very good friend, Lana Hunt‘s VERY FIRST COLLECTION – Ella & Willie Nelson (S/S 14)! HUNT COLLECTIVE is a ready to wear clothing line featuring original art, chic lines and luxurious fabrics. And I have a sneak peek and discount code to the show just for y’all! Check out these exclusive photos below courtesy of HUNT COLLECTIVE.
This is our most handy tool! The flip book contains each look, individually in the order they will go down the catwalk. Each sketch has details and a check list that we dutifully follow.
Shown above are some pattern pieces to one of our jumpsuits, along with some sketches for original artwork to be painted on the garments.

Some pieces in progress, along with our patterns and fabrics. Shown is a glimpse of one of our hand painted silk tees.
If you know Lana, you know she always kills it with her own style, so I’m sure you can understand my excitement to see the final production from HUNT COLLECTIVE, a collaboration between my ever so stylish and talented friend, her mother Sherlyn, and her sister Danielle. To attend the show, RSVP HERE and use code FF14 for 50% OFF!
But wait, there’s more! New Orleans Fashion Week is giving away a pair of tickets to every NOLAFW show, presentation and party! Post your most fashionable outfit on Instagram using the hashtag #becomeatrendsetter. One lucky winner will be chosen and announced on Thursday!
Anyone can support NOLAFW by becoming a member of the Scenesters’ Circle, Trendsetters’ Circle, or Benefactors’ Circle and get access to all the shows and parties! Check out the details of the different levels HERE.
Later this week I will be sharing some more inside scoop on 2 designers that premiered their very first lines last season and what to expect from them this time!
