The second annual Nashville Fashion Week is around a couple of corners now — March 20-24 — and will feature events at Marathon Music Works, The Parthenon and The Pinnacle at Symphony Place. Featured designer Randi Rahm, who's designed gowns for Beyonce, Carrie Underwood and Mariah Carey, to name a few, will close the week, and Project Runway's Tim Gunn has been confirmed as a participant in the week's events.

More urgently, for the seamsters and seamstresses out there: Today is the very last chance for aspiring fashion designers to apply for NFW consideration. Eligibility requirements, in brief: You must "live in or have connections to Nashville and/or Middle Tennessee"; your fall 2012 collection must consist of original designs, "debuting at Nashville Fashion Week with 15-20 cohesive looks"; and you must be available to show during the Fashion Week you're applying to show at. Does this sound like you? You've got until midnight to apply, and you can do that at the NFW site.

Also today, all-access passes for Fashion Week are on sale for $250 — a $100 discount that ends Feb. 7. These passes, of which only a limited number are available, entitle you to: reserved seating for all five nights; a "premium gift bag"; admission to afterparties on both opening and closing nights. Buy those at Now Playing Nashville. (If you're holding out for individual tickets, those are $75 and go on sale March 1.)
