Nashville is frankly on a roll. “It City.” Forty-five construction cranes around town. Developers devouring entire neighborhoods. Eighty new Nashvillians moving in every day of the year. You can’t throw a ball of merino without hitting a group of visiting bachelorettes screeching “I Will Survive” as they maneuver their Pedal Tavern down Demonbreun Street. You can’t get a reservation anywhere for dinner on a Saturday night. Parking downtown is a varsity sport.
I don’t know what has changed, except maybe that this young Nashvillian came back to town after finishing design school at Pratt in Brooklyn. Nashville may have been kind of cool before, but it is five notches cooler now that she’s back, haunting the 12 South neighborhood and never looking the same twice.
This is Juliana Horner, and she is the real deal—artist, illustrator, clothing designer, one-woman walking encyclopedia of style. She’s part of the young creative class in Nashville that makes living here more interesting than ever. And she’s been working her fingers to the bone on a project that has left us laughing, sighing, and digging for the exact emoji to express our joy.
We can’t wait to show you what she has been up to. Please stay tuned.
