With a name like Tennessee Hamilton you pretty much have to be cool, right? The LA-based designer did not disappoint with her new collection of clothing, jewelry, antique reproductions and originals on Wednesday evening. Austin’s really not much of a “fashion town”, so having a real LA designer drop in and bring us a little west coast style was pretty rad. The collection was previewed in suite 40 of the san jose, which is a pretty perfect way to do a small showing in Austin, if you ask me. Tennessee’s collection consists of colorful graphic prints, sculptural jewelry and some really gorgeous convertible evening gowns. I tried one on in “Jerry Hall red” and have not stopped thinking about it since! The whole collection had a real Maude Lebowski-vibe to it. Very edgy and artistic. This event turned into a pretty fun party and Tennessee was kind enough to give me an impromptu photo session modeling her amazing red and black blazer and pant set. Thanks, Tennessee and come back soon! To see where Tennessee will be showing her collection next, check her website at www.tennesseehamilton.com.
