Amanda Valentine is the founder of AMANDA VALENTINE, a Nashville-based clothing and accessory collection, and celebrity stylist. Born and raised in Nebraska by an artist mother and professor father, Valentine eventually headed west and got her start in Los Angeles, falling in love with wardrobe styling and costume design and playing in bands in Silverlake clubs at night.
A move to Nashville in 2006 allowed Valentine to launch her ready to wear clothing line and continue styling projects, which include Twenty One Pilots, Margo Price, Kaleo, CMT, Verizon, The Cadillac Three and Motely Crue. In 2013, Valentine was selected as a designer to compete on the eleventh season of Lifetime’s hit series Project Runway. She was voted back in the summer of 2014 by fans of Project Runway to compete again on Season 13 where she placed runner up.
Voted “Nashville’s Best Fashion Designer” 4 years running, Valentine travels around the country spreading the gospel of 70s chic and dreams of starting a band again someday.
