With all of the happenings taking place down in Nashville lately (Imogen + Willie for J.Crew! Supermodel Karen Elson sings and talks fashion!), StyleList was more than happy to take a recent fashion-motivated tour of Music City. Everyone knows it is a vintage shopping and classic country kind of town, but what was also interesting to discover was the influx of everything from high haute couture to customized denim to incredulously cheap designer mark downs.

The crown jewel of this style expedition was the opening of "The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957" exhibit, which was brought over from London's prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum, where it debuted in 2007. The 200 + piece collection is currently on display at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and is a stunning assemblage of haute couture dresses, lingerie, and accessories dating back to Christian Dior's iconic "New Look." As for choosing Nashville as its only stop in the U.S.? "It felt right," said curator Claire Wilcox. "It felt now."

The "now" feeling permeates through the culture of the city, which is filled with down home hipsters, cool boutiques, organically-conscious eateries, and all-star couples that mingle inconspicuously among the masses. And even though the effects May's inconceivable flooding are still being felt, there is a real sense of community that prevails above all else.
