Saint Louis Fashion Week | Night One

Wednesday I was in such a tizzy. Between work and St. Louis Fashion Week events, I found myself rushing to get things done so that I’d have enough time to get ready and head to Union Station for the Caleres Emerging Designer Award and runway show.

Once I got there and saw familiar faces, my anxiety leveled off and I was in my element. The crowd was buzzing with excitement for the show and special guests, including Iris Apfel.

The following are my favorite runway looks from night one at STLFW…

With an outstanding turnout of over 1,200 attendees for the show, St. Louis outdid itself once again. Tonight brings the Wear It: Fashion Challenge– ten designers, one $5,000 cash award. Local designer finalists, mentioned in a previous blog post, will create a look inspired by a work of art, showcasing their final design during a special opening event at The Luminary. I’m soo excited! Now off to get ready…

Stay tuned x
