LAST DAY TO VOTE: NFA Honors Nominees

You may already know that NATIVE is co-presenting an award for Nashville Fashion Alliance’s NFA Honors (November 16 at Marathon), but in case you don’t: the NFA and NATIVE have joined forces to bring you the Emerging Talent Award, an award for “any individual whose brand has been in business for less than five years and has produced at least one collection or product line.”

We opened voting up to the public for three weeks, and are in the final 24 hours of voting. From those votes, Savannah Yarborough of Atelier Savas, Bethany Wilson of Bela Begonias, Taylor Gilkey of Gilkey Co., or Caitlin Stolley of Lily Guilder will be selected as the winner of the Emerging Talent Award. Find out more about each designer below (except for Lily Guilder who unfortunately couldn’t make it to the video shoot because she had 3 runway shows in one week WOOF!). 

You can vote for the winner of the Emerging Talent Award until Tuesday, October 3 at 6 pm here.
