Darcy and Marcy Designs featured at the Athena Runway

A Runway For Designers, By Designers

NASHVILLE, TN  - The Athena Runway is a Nashville fashion show on June 2, 2019 from 7 P.M. until 10 P.M. located at the Parthenon. Hosted by multiple local emerging fashion designers, styles vary from waterproof outerwear athletica all the way to ready-to-wear.

One of the featured designers is Darcy and Marcy Designs. Designed by Darcy inspired by Marcy, Darcy and Marcy Designs specializes in waterproof outerwear athletica.

“This runway was created to give local emerging designers a showcase for their creative works,” said Darcy of Darcy and Marcy Designs. “There aren’t many options for emerging fashion designers, and it was a lot of work to put together. But in the end, I know it will all be worthwhile.”

Before Darcy’s mom passed away when she was 16-years-old, Marcy wanted to dance in the rain with Darcy. Although that never happened, the raincoats and capes Darcy designs are her interpretation of what dancing in the rain with Marcy would be like.

“My 2019 collection took a year to produce,” said Payne, “and my work has completely transformed since my last runway. Last year, I had more fun colors. This year is more focused on the pain all artists go through to create something beautiful.”

All the outerwear for Darcy and Marcy Designs’ never-before-seen 2019 collection is waterproof. The entire line is inspired by Darcy’s walk-in spirituality throughout grief: the gold and white fabrics symbolize heaven, angels while the black is the suffering we all go through at some time to find true faith. There are nine looks in the collection with a finale gown.
