Of course, a fashion show isn't complete without a nifty theme. (We all remember the Met Gala's Punk: Chaos to Couture theme, right?) This year's Memphis Fashion Week theme is Americana. Phillips explained, "We're trying to bounce off the hype that Americana is getting right now - classic, but with a funky edge."
With the Americana theme, Backbeat Tours' red and yellow buses were the natural choice. Our retro style buses are pretty famous around town - throwbacks to the good ol' days of jukeboxes, drive-ins, and rock 'n' roll. We love the thought of being considered "in style" while keeping that "funky edge" that epitomizes Memphis!
Memphis Fashion Week, like Memphis itself, is all about taking the "normal" and making it our own. Treat yourself to one of the runway shows and you may just come home with a new favorite designer! For a full list of events (including times, locations, and admission prices) and to check out all the designers being shown, visit memphisfashionweekend.com. Make sure to stop by 263 Wagner Street on Saturday, March 29, at 6:30pm, to catch the shuttle provided by Backbeat Tours! I'll see you there!
