Memphis magazine had the distinct pleasure of being a media sponsor for this year’s Memphis Fashion Weekend, an event that highlighted design talent and retailers dedicated to bringing the best in fashion to our city. In this issue, we showcase the very best about Memphis in May — the weather, the river, and some really great looks that are modeled by two rising stars who walked in the weekend’s shows.
Overall, Memphis Fashion Weekend brought together a shimmering community — designers, models, hair and makeup artists, photographers, retail buyers, and style enthusiasts — to generate a force that makes Memphis look really, really good.
