Have you ever met someone whose name suited them perfectly?
Meet Sunny Fitz, creator of SUNNYbands. SUNNYbands are whimsical, beautiful headgear for any and every occasion you can imagine. Sunny is the quintessential example of the kind of creative trailblazers that are fueling the entrepreneurial environment in Nashville these days. An entertainer for most of her life, she found herself out of a job when the 2010 Nashville flood ended her gig as a singer at the Opryland Hotel. Her decision to start a business making elaborate headbands and fascinators turned out to be a testament to her forward-thinking and creative genius. Her one-of-a-kind hair accessories have graced red carpets, photo shoots, and fashion runways, and she's expanding her line to include crochet bands, hippie headbands, baby bands, dog collars, cat ties - did I mention she's forward-thinking?
And she is just so infectiously sunny. She graciously opened up her studio to me and shared the SUNNYband story with me. Take a look at our little chat.
Of course, I couldn't resist trying on lots of different SUNNYbands. Wanna see?
Aren't they just stunning? But wait. How would you like to WIN your very own SUNNYband?
