All good things must come to an end and it was the final night of Kansas City Fashion Week Spring Summer '17. The Saturday night shows are the biggest and grandest if I might say so, and the attendees follow suit, and bring out their shimmery best. At least I did that. Stay tuned for a detailed Outfit Post on the blog soon.
The evening began with KCFW veterans and the favorite designer sister duo - Alicia Janesko with her Caftans and Jennifer Janesko with her jewellery. I remembered their collaborative show last year, and it was marked by the predominance of monochromes. So this time around they decided to embrace a new wild side. It was an ode to the jungles literally. Wild colors and sheer flamboyance took the stage. One of my favorites from the night.
The second designer of the night was another KCFW veteran Lauren Bander. She is known for her signature play with sheer fabrics. And this time around, with her Frangipani cutout details, she took us for a romantic beach party. She slayed yet again.
The third designer of the night was Madison La Rae, with her line La Rae fashions. Dont be fooled by her age, this young lady knows how to bring out romanticism with her range. She toyed with the trend of how lingerie can be an inspiration for evening wear. loved her attention to detail.
The next designer , Atelier Samosi, was a native of Georgia. her collection was marked by its use of velvets , embroideries and a distinct Asian influence. Her showstopper had a very vintage vibe, and the bloggers could not help but agree that she reminded everyone of Mary Poppins, if she ever went to China. If you thought velvets were big for this Fall, then I must add, it will surely be a big trend , next year too.
The next designer was Lucias's Sarto and her collection of wedding gowns. From the edgy bride who wanted to make a statement, to someone who wanted a more traditional approach, she had them all covered.
Next up was designer Julia Fischer. Loved her use of exotic fabrics and bright colors to create a statement. I know pant suits have been in the news politically, and it seemed Pant Suits got an exotic edgy lease of life with Julia Fischer's treatment.
Designer Sara Kahrs brought in earthy tones with floral cutouts for her Spring Summer collection. Playing with colors which are largely associated with Fall, for Spring, can be quite a challenge, and she handled the challenge pretty well.
AnnMann Designs , was paired with outfits by designer Andrea Mary Long. Every ensemble had a spirit animal. What a finale it was !
What an amazing week of fashion it was. Stay tuned to the Blog, for some more Outfit Posts of mine from KCFW.
