nD Festival Recap by guest blogger Merrick Jackson

Eight days ago I wrote that when I grew up I wanted to be as cool as Imogene + Willie, potentially because that’s what everyone (Nina Thomas, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lucky Magazine) had been talking about. But a few days and couple thousand miles later, here i n Nashville it has become clear i just want to be nD cool. That isn’t to say that I didn’t tear up through the Imogene + Willie portion of the documentary during the nD Festival’s final fashion show, but the whole weekend has taught me not only is there more to Nashville, but there are more Project Artisans.

I came from Salt Lake City, wide eyed and eager to see a place I held great blind eye adoration for, and i wasn’t disappointed. Sitting in the Belcourt Theater, the final night of the festival, I found myself happier then I had been in years. Just to be surrounded by such creativity made me want to explode with exuberant joy!

I came to Nashville to see its version of creative chic, and I will leave feeling so recharged that will I never actually want to leave. But the reality is that I live in a land with its own style and grace, a land I must return to. Before I do though, I will leave you with the images that I have burnt into my own creative mind.
