Amanda Valentine is the founder of VALENTINE VALENTINE, a Nashville-based clothing and accessory collection, and celebrity stylist. A move to Music City was a natural fit for the former bass player from Los Angeles, whose styling projects include CMT, Verizon Wireless, The Cadillac Three and Motely Crue. The designer launched her ready-to-wear line of rock ‘n’ roll inspired, modern women’s wear in 2010.
In 2013, Valentine was selected as a designer to compete on the eleventh season of Lifetime’s hit series Project Runway. Following the success of her appearance on the series and showing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Valentine expanded her brand to include a line of bold graphic tees and custom accessories.
Her styling projects broadened to include custom pieces for Family Force 5, For King and Country, Grammy Award winning Esperanza Spalding and Twenty One Pilots. In the summer of 2014, Valentine was voted back by fans to compete on the 13th Season of Project Runway, in which she placed 2nd.
She recently expanded her clothing to include higher end items under: AMANDA VALENTINE- featuring jewelry and clothing inspired by her Project Runway finale collection shown at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014.
