Couture by Tess fashion show in Nashville, Tennessee

Something fun just happened in Nashville and we must share the news! Tess Mann, fashion designer for the Couture by Tess and Tess Mann Haute Couture bridal gown labels, recently released her latest collections called Nostalgia and New Discovery at the Travel Through Fashion Time Fashion Show at OZARI inside L&L Marketplace in Nashville, Tennessee. Mann owns a couture bridal gown boutique in Cookeville, Tennessee where she carries her own labels as well as other luxury and international designers available for purchase. “My two latest collections were presented at our fashion show. The Nostalgia Collection is a new collection donning various fashion techniques from different eras while assimilating modern touches. New Discovery is a smaller collection that has utilized designs from previous Couture by Tess collections and re-imagined based on clients' feedback over the years,“ said Tess Mann.Nashville fashion and wedding industry professionals, editors, a select few brides-to-be, and VIPs were in attendance to experience the collections’ release at this event. Guests were served passed hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer during a brief cocktail hour upon arrival, followed by an introduction by Tess Mann, two fashion shows and ended with a meet and greet-style mix and mingle with the designer. We even spotted a few social media influencers on site: Brooke Webb with KB Styled, Abigail Breslin and Emily Bache with Wanderlust Girls, Savvy Poole, Alex Beale with The Darling Downtown, and Scarlet Paolicchi with Family Focus Blog were in attendance at the fashion show and sharing moments from the day on their respective social media outlets.“We were honored to attend this fabulous runway show and were truly stunned by the variety of gowns that came down the catwalk. Nods to different decades kept the crowd at the edge of their seats. We personally fell for some statement sleeves and one silky gown with an ever-flowing cape back. Look out Music City, Nashville might become Couture City thanks to creatives like Tess Mann,” says Abigail and Emily Bache, fashion bloggers at Wanderlust Girls and creators of A M A T O S T Y L E.The Couture by Tess team is getting ready to showcase on the runway again at the National Bridal Market Chicago, where they will also have a booth and will be meeting with bridal retail buyers from all over the world.  Not to worry though!  Tennessee brides will still be able to shop Couture by Tess and Tess Mann Haute Couture at the flagship store in Cookeville, Tennessee.“It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to showcase my latest haute couture bridal collections to the Nashville fashion and wedding industry and media community. I have been dreaming of bringing an international fashion flair to the Tennessee bridal fashion market and now my dream is coming true,“ said Tess Mann.
