WERK the RUNWAY: Cycle 1 - Marc Nelson Denim

WERK the RUNWAY's second show featured looks from Knoxville's Marc Nelson Denim and designer, Marcus Hall.

"Denim has long been a fabric that has helped shape the life of Tennessee-native Marcus Hall. After immersing himself in the denim industry of Los Angeles and learning the details of denim design and production, Marcus decided to create a business focused on luxury denim and t-shirts, and he brought it home to Knoxville with a mission to bridge the gap between the avant garde culture of LA and the traditional style of the South. Marc Nelson Denim specializes in premium custom-fit and tailored denim jeans for men and women."

The event included a roster of amazing models and runway looks by five incredible designers --- The Charming Housewife (Lacey Fleming), Marc Nelson Denim, Charles Josef Bridal, Victoria Wilmoth Couture, and Paulie Gibson.
