#KCFW F/W’19 Wednesday Night Runway Show

I can not believe how much I have slacked off with blogging. I am usually one to post event coverage hours after it happens but sometimes life gets in the way. My sophomore year of college has ended and I am about to start the summer hustle before I study abroad in Florence, Italy but, before I get super busy, I figured I should write up my 2 month late Kansas City Fashion Week Recaps.

This season, KCFW was held at the Grand Hall at Power & Light (one of my favorite venues) for the F/W’19 collections. I am thankful that I got to attend these events as media for my third season.


My Outfit :

This season of fashion week I stepped out of my comfort zone and incorporated bright colors! I am usually one to stick with all black or neutrals but wanted to try something new. I found this hot pink coat at Topshop and I knew it was the right piece to kick of KCFW!

DESIGNERS :

 Fey Chavez

The very first collection to be shown at Kansas City Fashion Week was one of my favorites of the whole season. If you know me, you know I love menswear a LOT. These pieces were so well tailored to the models and look as if they are 100% ready to be sold in a retail setting. My favorite piece was the knitted boatneck sweater. Texture is so important to me so this really stood out but stayed true to the collections aesthetic with similar colors.

 

Cierra Marie McMichael

This collection, so I was told, was inspired by superheros which is so badass! Only a few colors were used, as you can see below, but each piece was so different. The leather and silver combination was extremely powerful and the movement on each garment was amazing.

 

Sew Unrelaxed

Red has been my favorite color for a while now and I got so excited about this collection. My favorite piece was the red velvet cape. Very powerful vibes here.

 

Schyline

I met the designer of this collection, Schyler Slaven, a few years ago when we runway modeled together. I am so happy and proud to see how far she has come since then. I want every single piece from her line. I almost want to call it “elegant loungewear”. The colors and fabrics were sheer and simple and I fell in love with everything about it! Keep it up girl, you’re killing it!

 

Candace Callahan Wolf

Candace Callahan Wolf’s collection was so diversely chic. There were gowns, pants, dresses, and jackets- so much variety; and all in white! The pearl detailing on some of the pieces was such an elegant surprise. My favorite piece from this line was the button up bomber jacket, so cool.

 

Em’s Trends

Em’s Trends’ line somehow brought me back to my childhood. As a kid, I was a princess and fairytale fanatic. Between the floral headpieces and embellished gowns it was like a dream come true. I wish the models could walk down the runway hundreds of times because I really wanted a close look at the detail. Really, really beautiful.

 

Sewrissarenee

This collection was to show that a modest and conservative woman can still be fashionable and chic. It was an entire denim collection and the tailoring was incredible. Denim will always have a special place in my heart and I have a love for the reconstruction of it. I can see myself wearing a lot of this collection.

 


 

Again, I feel so terrible for how delayed this post is but as I said before, life gets crazy and it’s healthy to relax and sometimes not worry about anything at all. The next three nights of KCFW will be posted within the next three days in chronological order so stay tuned.

#KCFW S/S’18 Tuesday Night Kansas City Chiefs Style Lounge

Hello readers! I feel like I haven’t written up an official blog post in forever. I have been crazy busy with my sophomore year of school and as of now that is my top priority. However, this past week I attended Kansas City Fashion Week to cover my second season of media. For any new readers who don’t know my backstory, I modeled in nine consecutive seasons of KCFW and then realized that my passion was not walking the runway but instead watching from the crowd. Last season was my first time covering fashion week as a blogger and I am so thankful to have done my second one.

This season, I got to do something that I’ve never done before. I got the opportunity to style outfits to go down the runway! This night I styled five looks, all pulled from Dillards at the Oak Park Mall (KCFW’s sponsor) to be worn by the NFL Kansas City Chiefs cheerleaders. All of my pulled looks are below : photos by Jason Atherton of Atherton Photography.  (Facebook Page)

MY OUTFIT :

Since this night was KC Chiefs themed, I thought I would break out my team spirit and wear the team’s colors; red and yellow. I found this amazing biker moto jacket from Missguided and paired it with a lace top and some yellow striped track pants. At first this concept seemed strange but I think once it was all put together, I did it right.
