Symphony Spring Fashion Show: Trunk Show

Last week, we had a blast working with the folks at the Nashville Symphony Orchestra League for the Marchesa Spring 2011 trunk show - an event that leads up to the April 26th Symphony Spring Fashion Show, as well as a second trunk show (both of which will also feature Marchesa's fabulous designs!)

The fall trunk show was held at Nashville venue Spaces in Belle Meade.This was such a perfect place for the show, and we loved transforming Spaces into a chic boutique for this event.

The sleek, modern vibe at spaces was enhanced by chic white draping...

We gave the venue a warm ambience with crystal chandeliers and vases filled with floating candles:

Modern white sofas and ottomans as well as white Chippendale chairs provided seating for shoppers.

We also used white draping and full-length mirrors to create dressing rooms...

Marchesa's signature hue of pink was introduced into the space through dramatic arrangements of vibrant pink roses accented with chartreuse spider mums.

Spider mums provided such a great burst of color in these retro white containers...

A stunning Marchesa gown was elevated in the center of the room (scattered hot pink rose petals and candles were also added around it after this photo).

And the gowns...did we mention the gorgeous gowns?!

Marchesa's designs were brought to Nashville by a wonderful group from Marissa Collections in Naples, Florida, as well as Marchesa's VP of Sales

(some amazing accessories from Marissa Collections!)

Also featured at the trunk show were jewels from Erickson Beaman...absolutely stunning pieces!

Here's a group pic from the opening of the trunk show...

Thank you to everyone who made this trunk show such a success...we loved planning this event and are looking forward to the fashion show this Spring!
