The Scene Nashville: Manuel Couture Clothing

In the land of the rhinestone cowboys, one man reigns supreme: legendary fashion designer Manuel Cuevas.

In this episode of The Scene, host Mark Agnesi sits down with the man responsible for the Nashville Country look. There is no doubt that you have seen his work. From Elvis’s gold lamé suit to Johnny Cash’s signature all-black look, Manuel was the man behind the suits.

Manuel’s vision and talent have had an impact on how we see our favorite artists and actors since the 1950s, but he remains humble, “I was just creating my own thing.” His “own thing” is a labor of love, creating iconic clothing with every rhinestone sewn by hand. With approximately 5,000 rhinestones and intricate embroidery, Manuel’s original pieces take about one month to complete.
