One of Nashville’s most celebrated fashion designers, Jeff Garner, is presenting the spring collection of his clothing line, Prophetik, to put a spotlight on the importance of heart health for women.

In support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Campaign, Garner got involved because of his daughter.

“I support Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association to help bring awareness and create solutions to an issue that affects many, even myself, as my daughter, Veda, was born with a heart defect,” Garner says.

“After three open-heart surgeries, her purpose in life has pulled her through. We are all connected and must support each other in both a healthier world for ourselves and future generations.”

The Red Haute Cocktails and Couture event in Centennial Park will be the official Nashville spring collection show for Garner’s internationally acclaimed line, which has focused on sustainable garments for the past eleven years.

Garner has designed for many top music and film stars, including Miley Cyrus, Esperanza Spalding, Amy Grant, Sheryl Crow, the Jonas Brothers, Kings of Leon, Barry Manilow, Julia Stiles and Cameron Diaz.

His gowns have even been worn to the Academy Awards.
