Prophetik Fashion Show at Posh

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.
