Saint Louis Fashion Week kicks off this weekend, and I’m a proud STLFW ambassador. Curious what’s coming? Let me fill you in…
Sept. 26: FABRIC featuring the St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards
This is the official Fall ’14 STLFW kickoff, and it happens to be the Saint Louis Fashion Blog Awards. And it’s this Friday!
Oct. 9: Neiman Marcus Fashion Chat and Presentation benefiting COCA
Shopping, snacks and a panel discussion—for a great cause!
Oct. 15: The Saint Louis Fashion Fund’s Emerging Designer Competition presented by Brown Shoe Company // After Party
What could be more inspiring than seeing the designers a minute before they go from big-deal to household-name? The six finalist are: Hillary Taymour, Daniella Kallmeyer, Charles Harbison, Jessie Liu, Lisa Panza and Liz Patelski, and Emily Koplar. I once had macarons with Emily Koplar, a.k.a. the designer behind Wai Ming, and she was delightful. I’m excited to see all the collections, but I might have my fingers crossed extra-tight for her.
Oct. 16: Yigal Azrouël, Tess Giberson, Timo Weiland Runway + St. Rita Parlor // Wrap Party
I. Can’t. Even. This will be the crown jewel of the week. Just look at the line-up! Nothing more needs to be said.
