The time to be different is now....

Mama always told us it is good to be different.

And that is never more so true than right now in Nashville.

Lots of big box stores equals lots of fashion repeats.  Here at habit we are pleased to bring you what is new, wearable and straight from NYC  (by way of India, Ethopia and Italy....).  Introducing some upstarts that will  have you thinking differently about fashion.

Supermodel / actress and former World Health Organisation's Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, Liya Kebede discovered that traditional weavers in her native country of Ethiopia were losing their jobs due to a decline in local demand for their goods and wanted to do something about it. Recognizing the beauty, quality and historic significance of their work, Liya started Lemlem in 2007 as a way to inspire economic independence in her native country and to preserve the art of weaving

This collection is designed for women who are confident, fun, and about attitude not age; they desire to make an individual statement expressed through personal style. Transcending a trend-driven society, Johnny Was is on the pulse of meeting the needs of today’s women by offering unique, quality pieces.
These vibrant silhouettes infused with intoxicating color combinations express harmony and beauty by the soul of an artist through her design. We invite you to experience the world of Johnny Was and visit a retailer nearest you.

The Ulla Johnson label has become synonymous with custom prints, intricate details and fine tailoring, all of which have earned her a loyal and global customer base.
