Collie Daily and Sissy Wilson, co-chairs of the 2015 Nashville Symphony Fashion Show, have proudly announced that the 10th edition of the event will feature the designs of Brunello Cucinelli, through a partnership with Jamie Inc.
The annual event, one of Music City’s leading runway shows, will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
“We chose to feature Brunello Cucinelli’s designs not only because he is a unique talent in the world of fashion, but also because of his dedicated philosophy of giving back to the community,” Daily and Wilson shared in a joint statement. “That philosophy aligns perfectly with the very spirit and mission of the Symphony Fashion show, which every year bolsters the education outreach initiatives that are a crucial component of the Nashville Symphony’s mission.”
Proceeds from the Fashion Show will help support the Symphony’s high-impact and meaningful education and community engagement programs, which annually serve more than 100,000 children and adults in the area. Through concerts, classroom curriculum guides, instrument instruction and scholarships, Symphony education programs help prepare the next generation of Middle Tennesseans to learn, think, grow and contribute to their community.

Founded in 1978 when Cucinelli was only 25, the company now operates in 60 countries around the globe and has become one of the most exclusive brands in the “informal luxury” prêt-a-porter sector worldwide.
