What started as a booth at the Tomato Art Fest has morphed into one of Nashville's most celebrated streetwear brands. Adrien Saporiti was working at Apple's Genius Bar when he started making designs celebrating his hometown—DCXV stands for 615, which is Music City's main area code—then slapped them on T-shirts and posters and started selling his wares at festivals. His small East Nashville shop opened the following year and stocks mugs, onesies, hoodies, and more. Saporiti's artwork doesn't end with apparel and branded merchandise, though; he's also responsible for the city's celebrated "I Believe in Nashville" murals (in addition to other installations around town), which have appeared on Instagram more than a million times. The row of stores on Porter Road where DCXV is located was recently taken over by new management and, as a result, is blossoming into one of East Nashville's best shopping developments. With indie boutiques like Apple & Oak, specializing in unique home decor and quirky barware; Pony Show, a treasure trove of vintage goods; and Rich Hippies, a tiny, yet lovely store of fashionable kids' clothing and toys, there's something for everyone in this quirky retail corridor.
