The past 2 weeks have been nuts! Lots of appointments, lots of shopping and lots of fun events! Being more involved in the KC blogging community has created so many new opportunities and I am so grateful. For example, I was lucky enough to attend all three nights of Kansas City Fashion Week AND sit in the front row (eeek!) with my new uber fancy camera to capture it all! It was totes amazing. I know many of you follow along with me on Instagram and Facebook and were able to see some of my favorite pieces from the shows. But, I wanted you to be able to see MORE. So here you go!
My favorite collection: Gypsy Black
Minimalist at its best. Lots of black olive and gold and leather details. Simple pieces in unique fabrications is totally my jam. I am a huge fan of simplistic design because it is easier to integrate the pieces into wardrobes without looking like I am trying too hard. Plus, the collection included olive green leather leggings. I need them.
My favorite collection: Kiana Godsey
This was more of a visionary collection made of luxury designs and styles. Think sheer lace and chiffon paired with artistic elements like a gold lame leaf petal dress. Even though the pieces weren’t as wearable as other collections, the creativity and thought behind it was very evident. From dramatic hair and makeup to the perfect music; everything in this collection worked together cohesively to tell a defined story (which I absolutely loved.)
My favorite collection: Lucia’s Sarto
Saturday night displayed A LOT of talented designers. But, if I had to choose my favorite, I would have to go with the Lucio Sarto collection from Nataliya Meyer. This designer has been working the KC fashion show circuit since 2007. I know, because she and I used to display collections at the same fashion shows. Her designs, always dramatic are constructed with the finest of skills. She is an impeccable seamstress and a true visionary for sure. The collection was everything I expected it would be and more. As a designer myself, I have the utmost respect for people that have the ability to make dreams come to life, and Nataliya Meyer is definitely one of them. FYI, she owns a studio by the Country Club Plaza and also does alterations…in case you are needing a fabulous tailor.
And Just in case you missed it on instagram…here are my looks from night 1,2 and 3!
Leather Leggings: BlanK NYC
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Jewelry: Soku and vintage
Floral Jumpsuit: Forever 21 (sold out)
Shoes: Joie (sold out) similar one here
Dress: Made by Moi:) (Many years ago…but I thought I would take it out for a spin)
And thats a wrap! So excited that I was able to attend Kansas City Fashion Week and I cannot wait until the shows in the Fall!
Until Next time…
