Nashville Fashion Week: Cheryl Tiegs Hosts Party Celebrating Manuel at Suzy Wong’s House of Yum
The Cambria kick-off party forFashion Week gathered the city’s finest-clad for a night of cocktails and at Suzy Wong’s House of Yum. Hosted by Cheryl Tiegs, the soiree feted Manuel – ’s “Rhinestone Rembrandt.”
The Pinnacle venue for the debut fashion shows had set high expectations for the rest of Nashville Fashion Week events, and Suzy Wong’s did not disappoint. A valet waited at the end of a red carpet – velvet ropes and all – to receive partiers as they hit the scene. Inside, the deliciously camp-inspired restaurant morphed into a d club asthrobbed and cliques cozied up inside the posh candlelit booths. Models wearing Manuel’s custom creations surveyed the crowd from their vantage point on the leather banquettes lining the walls.
It wasn’t hard to tell where the action was. As you pushed past the well-attended bar into an anteroom the crowd grew thicker still as fashionistas jostled to congratulate Manuel and pose with Cheryl Tiegs against the Cambria backdrop. The man of the hour was all smiles, speaking with each and every person who approached him over the din and posing for countlesswith press and party-goers alike. For a man with such a reputation to precede him – he is, after all, responsible for The King’s lame suit and Johnny Cash’s midnight wardrobe – he was intensely humble and seemed to appreciate each and every person present.
As the night wore on, the party never flagged. Drinks kept flowing, and waitresses brought the most incredible small bites on trays to keep everyone’s energy up. A favorite was the fried rice, served in tiny Chinese take-out boxes with chopsticks, and the yakitori skewers. By the time we left well after 2:00, there was still a crowd on the dance floor. Party on, Wayne.
