Here’s one way to bring more women into your dealership: Harley-Davidson of Knoxville will show more than just motorclothes at a special event this spring: the dealership will host a catwalk for Knoxville’s first Fashion Week.

Every fashionista has heard of the Mercedes Benz-sponsored fashion week in New York. But entrepreneur Jaime Hemsley decided Knoxville, Tenn., has enough of a homegrown fashion scene to support the city’s own showcase for local designers.

To generate extra interest, Hemsley lined up local businesses to host runway shows between Feb. 29 and March 4. The show at Knoxville Harley-Davidson West is the grand finale for the fashion event. It starts at 8 p.m. March 3. Tickets are $30 each, available from the Fashion Week website.
