Inside Scoop: Events This Week For The Fashion Focused

I've got the inside scoop on a couple events this week I believe would interest the fashion focused follower of this blog.  One is a treat for your eyes, the other for your closet.  Both sure to be fun evenings with interesting crowds.  

Curiosities, a Compendium of Tales
Friday November 5 
Rocketown 601 4th Avenue South
6:00 - 9:00 pm

I am really looking forward to this whimsical event on Friday.  My friend and amazing photographer/graphic designer Brett Warren will showcase some new works from his Wooden Hearts collection.  Brett styles every detail of his shoots, from lighting to location to wardrobe.  He is the master of using vintage clothing and costumes to perfectly create and enhance the visualization of his concepts.  Always on the search for interesting pieces, his collection of fine vintage clothing is ever-expanding, perhaps because for fun he has been known to rent a suburban and venture across the country through the world's longest yard sale.  Brett, having recently moved back to Nashville after an internship in New York with Annie Leibovitz, has an amazing eye for capturing beauty and telling stories through the medium of photography.  Check out the event website here: www.curiousphotoshow.com and some of his previous inspired, dramatic work here: www.brettwarrenphotography.com

Mocha Club 
Gifts & Accessories Show
November 3 & 4
Two Moon Gallery. 2905 12th Avenue South

Many of my friends actively volunteer with Mocha Club, an organization I've learned a lot about through their experience and involvement.  The view of this organization is that with a very small sacrifice, people can make a huge difference in the lives of others, specifically in areas of Africa.  The money saved by giving up two mochas a month, when donated to Mocha Club, can contribute greatly to helping others with various needs: child mothers and women at risk, those who need clean water, education, healthcare or orphan care.  So where does fashion enter this scenario?  Well, your $5 (or more if you're so inclined) donation at the door benefits Mocha Club and grants you access to an evening of great previewing and shopping.  Check out the invite above for more detailed info.  Visit www.mochaclub.org to learn about other ways you can become involved.
