We have some BIG news...Santa brought us an early gift with a BOLD addition to our upcoming Fashion Forward Gala plans. We can’t say it out loud yet, but it's definitely worth waiting for. The Gala will move from it's previously announced date to Saturday, April 6 at OZ Arts Nashville. 


The Nashville Fashion Forward Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee invites you to celebrate and support the entrepreneurial spirit of Nashville’s creative arts and fashion community with Nashville Fashion Week and our partner OZ Arts Nashville at the Fifth Annual Nashville Fashion Forward Fund Gala on Saturday, April 6 at OZ Arts Nashville. The Gala will close out Nashville Fashion Week as it has since 2014.

This is the fourth year that Nashville Fashion Week will present its Nashville Fashion Forward Awards at the Fashion Forward Gala to recognize community leaders that have made an impact on the Nashville fashion industry. This is the first year that award recipients have been announced prior to the event as a way to ensure that they receive the attention that they deserve over the months leading up to Nashville Fashion Week. Many more details about these talented people and their contribution to our fashion community will be shared with you after the first of the year.

Special holiday pricing of $200 per ticket has been extended through January 31. Individual tickets after January 31 will be $250 and tables of 10 for $2,500. Reserve your seat/table with your ticket purchase by March 27 at

The ninth Nashville Fashion Week will be held April 2- 6 in partnership with OZ Arts Nashville. All proceeds from Nashville Fashion Week benefit the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Please contact Nashville Fashion Week to discuss available sponsorship opportunities for all NFW events.
