Knoxville, TN (April 25, 2013) – Designer, Marcus Hall, has made quite an impact in the world of denim since the launch of his label, Marc Nelson. Now, the local designer’s brand is set to make its mark in the fashion industry by not only changing the way that men wear and look in denim, but women too. Marc Nelson will unveil its first Women’s Collection and the 2013 Spring/Summer Men’s Collection Friday, May 3rd during a block party to celebrate the big reveal and to kick off Knoxville Fashion Week’s High Fashion Runway. For this monumental event, the City of Knoxville will be closing the streets around Marc Nelson’s warehouse in the Old City located at 206 Randolph Street Knoxville, TN 37917 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
“Before coming to market with a collection for women, I wanted to make sure that the line delivered a product that expressed the craftsmanship of the denim and the individuality of the woman wearing,” said Marcus Hall, Designer and Founder of Marc Nelson. “I wanted the collection to ooze confidence so much so that when a woman wears the Marc Nelson brand she exudes sex appeal.” Hall further stated that, “After extensive research, fabric testing and hours of fitting women of all shapes, ages 15 to 50, I feel we have created a timeless design that women will love.”
Marc Nelson’s authentic denim design combines an edgy take on the classics with quality fabrics to deliver an unrivaled fit. The tasteful signature pocket detail, hand distressing, custom washes and hardware offer an ageless denim that was designed to withstand fashion’s ever changing trends and to endure the test of time.
Marc Nelson’s signature style has set the stage for the 2013 denim collection to become a staple item in closets for both men and women. In addition to denim jeans, shorts and skirts, the collections offer tanks and simple, seductive tees made from breathable fabrics in intoxicating colors inspired by local Cherokee-American Indians.
With a strong and growing distribution presence, the company is hitting its stride with hometown and retail outlets all over the U.S. The men’s line has already gained a celebrity following and is quickly establishing a reputation for fit and quality comparable to some of the most well-known denim designers. Marc Nelson is bringing pride back to the American fashion industry and staying true to its roots by honoring the working man with its 100% American-made pieces.
