She is the recipient of the inaugural Nashville Fashion Forward Fund award, made possible with the proceeds from Lexus Nashville Fashion Week 2011. Bass was born in Pulaski, Tenn. and attended Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro where she studied apparel design and costume design. She now lives in Brooklyn, NY.
