This post has been EXTREMELY delayed and I can’t apologize enough for it. However, school has been taking over my life and that right now it my top priority. I finally got some free time now that it’s my Thanksgiving break to write up my Kansas City Fashion Week recaps (thank God)!

During this event I was interview by Tara Logan for Kansas City Fashion Week’s official Facebook page. This was kind of nerve-wracking since I have never done an on camera interview before but I hope that I did okay! You can watch my interview HERE and Tara’s YouTube video recap HERE.
Skye Brand focused on the terrible and ongoing issue of sex trafficking. Models were bound by ropes at the hands to make a statement that victims of sex trafficking are trapped. The finale model broke free of the ropes, which was somewhat of a light into the end of sex trafficking. This was a very powerful collection and gave me and probably others, much to think about. Overall, I loved the concept to raise awareness about something that is so relevant in today’s society through art.
Rebekah Lux was one of my favorites from this night. When it comes to statement pieces, I am team metallic all the way. Her pieces were so much fun and had so much life and energy to each and every one of them. Her look featuring pink metallic culottes was by far my favorite in this collection. I am so inspired by everything that she created.
Naava Swim gave me so many Miami Swim Week Vibes. Every piece was different but the collection was still cohesive as a whole and I LOVED the blues and yellows. The models looked amazing and showed so much personality on the runway.
Designs by Miranda Hanson
This collection was absolutely gorgeous! It was so airy and feminine and the details were beautiful. I am in love with the color palette, as some of my favorite shades are pastels. Each look flowed well in the entirety of the collection.
Dous was another one of my favorite designers because I am such a huge menswear fan. I talk about how much I like menswear all of the time and this collection made me so happy. It was very street style-esque and the graphics added a nice touch and kept all the looks together. There were also a few womenswear looks which were kept on the androgynous side. Lots of denim and heavier fabrics were used, probably to keep the clothing more wearable and practical.
Travis Cal’s collection was just a lot of fun. I enjoyed the mix of women and menswear along with the variety. The whole thing was romantic and full of texture; there were sequins, florals, lace and prints.
Kendra J Bridal
It’s definitely more difficult for me to discuss bridal gowns because that is not in my area of focus but watching these dresses go down the runway made my heart so happy. Each one had so much detail and was totally stunning. My favorites were most definitely the ones that had lace overlays.
MY OUTFIT :
My mom just handed down this two piece set from the 70s and I had to break it out for fashion week! The pink was a bit girly so I edged it up with a black satin bomber worn off the shoulder and some fishnets.
