KCFW

KCFW: in the details

The final night of KCFW was one for the books! The runway show included many KCFW “veterans” and they didn’t disappoint. For me the final evening was all in the details.

Here was my outfit for the evening! Top and shoes from Pink Saloon, pants from Target Who What Wear line, jewelry from Stella & Dot

I loved all the details in every line from the evening. I especially enjoyed how each designer’s collection was so different from the others.

This collection from Barbara Bultman was a serious stunner. With the deep, rich colors and all the textures it definitely wasn’t a bore.

This train was amazing and so different from your usual train. Maybe perfect for a beach wedding??

Next up were some fabulous jewelry designs from Georgina Herrera. This jewelry is seriously like no other. I also loved how the designer chose to have two models walk down both sides of the runway at the same time. Was a great change up and gave the audience so much to look at!

People in the audience were actually gasping when this model came down the runway because it was so amazingly intricate.

Is there such a thing as too many jewels and metals?? I don’t think so!

Beautifully paired outfits with Georgina’s jewelry designs.

The last designer was Christian Michael’s new women’s line, sHe. 

I think hands down this was my favorite line of the runway events I went to. 

The entire collection was in black and white and incorporated different stitching techniques and varying hemlines.

Love the quilted look of this overcoat with the Cruella deVille like collar.

There wasn’t an outfit he put down the runway that I didn’t enjoy.

And a couple more looks from Barbara Bultman because I just couldn’t narrow it down!

Overall I had an amazing experience this season at KCFW. I liked the change of venue and the European style runway. We were up close and intimate with the models and really were able to take in all the details. Want to see more? Be sure to follow @kc_fashionweek on Instagram!


bold fashion: KCFW

I love going to fashion shows. It’s so fun to see new designers, inspiring collections, and all the fabulous models, kiddos included. A couple weeks ago I had the chance to attend KCFW again, this time for the Fall/Winter 2017 season. When I was thinking of how to describe this season’s runway, “bold fashion” was the term that came to mind. This season’s designers and collections definitely didn’t disappoint the inner fashionista in me. 

This first collection I’m going to show you was so 70’s inspired to me and had all the jewel tones every fall fashion lover will envy. Tiffany Brown’s “Chelsea Girl” collection was probably one of my favorites during Friday night’s runway. 

One of the reasons I love fashion shows are because it shows off a bunch of fun, unique pieces. While this collection definitely still had those, it also contained so many “wearable” pieces I would love to have in my closet!

The wide leg look is so flattering on many body styles, though I’m not sure I could wear the pleated look on the backside. Maybe it would help though 😉

Nasheli Juliana’s line was a little “flying nun” inspired if you ask me! So fun and bold for sure. 

This kid’s collection by Ethel & Dean is everything I totally see my future kids wearing. It’s still whimsical and kid friendly but so unique and different from all the other adolescent fashion out there.

Love the bold fashion prints, accessories and details in this collection. Not to mention the kid models were so stinkin’ cute and took that runway seriously!


I really enjoyed Joshua Christensen’s line as well. Love the use of bright colors paired with bold prints or accesories. I love a designer who isn’t afraid to get a little on the wild side!

These are truly just a sampling of some of my faves from the Friday night runway show. Later this week I’ll be sharing more from Saturday’s, which was the final runway for this season’s KCFW. It is going to be so much harder to pair down my faves from that evening. Be prepared for an even more photo packed post!

KCFW: Spring Runway pt 2

Welcome to the second and final runway event I attended at KCFW! This was definitely my favorite evening, I was so inspired by all of the runway shows of the evening at Saturday’s show.

Saturday evening I attended with my beautiful mom and one of my close friends who lives in KC!

Love love loved this line!!! Seriously all the gowns were gorgeous and unique in their own way

How about that fur?? Perfect for that winter wedding right?

And this gown, was my favorite of both of the shows, the picture below was our first look of her coming down the runway and then she ran her hands up the gown and the sequins flipped to be silver versus champagne!

I’m all about trains and this one aimed to please!

There’s something about long sheer sleeves on a gown that also get. Loved this runway look also, gorgeous for the fall and winter.

I really have no clue where I would wear this to or what event it would work for but wow!

Not sure the hubs would go for any of these looks but a girl can try right??

And there you have it! I took so many photos both evenings but I wanted to narrow it down to my absolute faves of the runway. What is your favorite? Did you attend, if so who was your favorite designer? Looking forward to fall’s show for spring 2017!

 

KCFW Spring Runway

If you’ve been following along with me on instagram you’ll know I went to KCFW last week for their Spring runway events Friday and Saturday evening. I was very excited to be able to be official media for the event on both Friday and Saturdays runway shows. I had a blast both evenings and can’t wait to share more about my experiences! First up in Friday night’s runway was Jill with My Heirloom Bridal who you might remember I interviewed!

Loved getting to see the fall/winter collection of My Heirloom Bridal after interviewing Jill and experiencing her unique take on bridal wear. She was definitely right that she has a different take on bridal wear with her different silhouettes, colors and accessories.

This was one of my fave gowns in her collections, the trains and body veil on this gown were simply stunning!

And here’s Jill with one of her models! Loved her entire collection, if you’re a newly engaged gal I would definitely look up Jill and see what beautiful gown she could create for one of the most important days of your life. No doubt it will be special and oh so memorable.

Throughout the weekend there were several younger designers which was so inspiring that these young girls are motivated to go out there and be creative and show the world they aren’t afraid to do so!

And here is some of Kiana Godsey’s line for Fall/Winter 2016. Gold and black were a huge hit on the runway, I loved how sultry and fitting her looks were with an elegant touch to all of them.

Overall my first evening at KCFW was a lot of fun, I saw quite a few familiar faces from Go Blog Social that I attended earlier this month as well as met a few other bloggers. Stay tuned for Saturday night’s runway looks tomorrow!
