ABC’s The Revolution made a visit to Nashville in early April to tape an upcoming episode featuring the sights and sounds of Music City. During their visit, country music duo Montgomery Gentry played host to TV’s fashion expert Tim Gunn, taking him to some of Nashville’s hottest clothing stores.
Troy Gentry introduced Gunn to Aimee Johns at Flavour for Men (1522 Demonbreun Street, Nashville), who guided him through the latest styles of Music Row. Flavour Clothing for Men & Women carries a large number of lines from New York to Los Angeles including Hudson, AG Jeans, Theory, John Varvatos, L.A.M.B., Hale Bob, Joes Jeans and 7 for all Mankind, to name a few. Flavour is often frequented by Gentry, as well as many other country stars including such notables as Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, and Kellie Pickler among others, and additionally offers private shopping opportunities by request.
After visiting Flavour, Eddie Montgomery introduced Gunn to Morelia Ceuvas, daughter of costumer and artist, Manuel. Often referred to as the “Rhinestone Rembrandt,” Manuel (whose showroom is located at 1922 Broadway in Nashville), is known for making Johnny Cash the “man in black,” Elvis’ signature gold lamé suit, the garments Bob Dylan wore when performing for the Pope, and outfitting countless other stars including members of The Rat Pack, Roy Rogers and the Lone Ranger. His work within the entertainment industry is world-renowned and has received special recognition by the Country Music Association. The shop, Manuel American Designs, also known as Manuel Exclusive Clothier or simply Manuel’s, is a staple not only of Nashville but of Americana history.
The episode will air this Thursday (4/26) on ABC.
