CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) – The Chattanooga Fashion Show concluded its 3-day event with a fashion show.
“It comes from different situations. Fun times and bad times in my life. I put a lot of my feelings in my heart in my collection.
Jimmy Young is a designer and he, along with other designers, presented several models on the runway.
“What I do as a wearable art design. So it’s a statement piece that you wouldn’t necessarily wear every day. A lot of my clothes incorporate physical things and materials that you wouldn’t necessarily use on the clothes. I underline it and create it in my creations.
The expo coordinator says it’s a magical time to get there after several months of work leading up to the expo.
“It’s powerful. I mean so powerful but I literally cried in my car. This event is very, very hard work. To see this happen in its entirety, I mean it’s literally mind blowing.
“A lot of us have 9-5 jobs but for a lot of us this is what we do this is how we make our money and when it all comes together with everyone who is involved everyone from different cultures, nationalities different origins ethnic groups all of us come together just to make the show what it is, a full Chattanooga fashion show.
