    Episode 2: Amanda Valentine

    It’s here! The second episode of Listen! It’s Vetrano has arrived and it’s all about Project Runway designer and Nashville celebrity stylist Amanda Valentine. Amanda is the creator and designer of Valentine Valentine, a Nashville based fashion brand that is about to get a global launch with the exposure from the Lifetime series. She is one of the most beautiful, talented and raddest chicks I’ve ever known.

In the episode, Amanda and I  dish on behind-the-scenes dirt from the hit fashion series, talk about growing up with her famous brother (Maroon 5‘s James Valentine) and pick Celebrity…
