Last week, Franklin-based designer Jeff Garner displayed his new spring and summer collection for his sustainable clothing line Prophetik.
The show, which took place in the courtyard behind Posh boutique in Hillsboro Village, was a hit among label-loving locals and faithful followers of the eco-friendly line.
As models strutted down the grassy catwalk, live music from an Australian band filled the air. A mid-show tango performance added to the excitement of the affair.
Prophetik recently appeared at Fashion Week for the British Fashion Council and is currently featured in Eco-Age, actor Colin Firth's (of Bridge Jones' Diary and Love Actually) London boutique.
A portion of event proceeds went to the Asian Elephant Art & Conservation Project. Prophetik's partnership with the foundation allows the elephants to paint on Garner's organic silk and hemp fabric with their trunks, creating distinct designs used in some of the line's most unique pieces.
Posh introduces to Nashville the following brands: You Must Create, Endovanera, & Shades of Greige. YMC is a tidy British brand for men and women, utilizing tasteful stripes and patterns as well as subtle uses of color. Endovanera is a little more goth-chic. Focusing on darker colors, this LA-based brand leans more toward New York punk. Shades of Greige (not pictured) is a men's brand that brings economy to high fashion, which we all know is not easily found! It has gained a reputation being sold on such sites as Revolve Clothing because of its high-brow simplicity and low-brow prices. What more could you ask for? It's all going quickly, so come check it out while there is still some left.
Please join us next Thursday night, March 19th for a HUGE party and fashion show for Prophetik's A/W '09 Preview. Prophetik seeks to provide clothing to inspire a sense of awareness with the self, the needs of others, and an overall conscience for the wellbeing of the planet. They strive for sustainability, using organic cottons, low-impact production, low-impact maintenance, and recylability. Prophetik supports a number of charities with a focus on land conservation, working with the Asian Elephant Art & Conservatory Project, raising funds to buy land for elephants that are begging in the streets. Elephant Art trains the elephants to paint on Prophetik's organic silk and hemp fabric with their trunks. This artwork is sold to help sustain and protect elephant populations, as well as improve the welfare of domesticated elephants.

Health and beauty combine with Count Me Healthy - the elegant jewelry which effectively tracks your goals using a simple new counting system. The patented Count Me Healthy bracelet discretely serves as a constant reminder of your commitment to well-being.
It's simple. Here's how it works.Just choose a health goal you wish to monitor. Some examples are: drinking more water, quitting smoking, better nutrition or adding daily exercise. Next, assign a value to each bead based on that goal (for example, if you are tracking glasses of water, each bead could stand for one, 8 oz. glass of water).
Then, just slide one of the beautiful beads from one side to the other - counting your way to better health. At the end of your day, tally the beads and write down your progress. Reports state that many future health problems can be prevented by making healthy choices today. But with today's hectic lifestyle, it is easy to lose track of the promises we make to improve our personal wellness.
