Kansas City Fashion Week Roundup and What I Wore

I had the privilege of attending Kansas City Fashion Week last Friday. I’ve never been to a fashion show before, and I was so excited for the opportunity, especially right here in Kansas City.

I know that the fashion week posts can be a little overwhelming, so I thought I’d share just a few of my favorite designers and what I liked about their shows.

Lenzanita Couture kicked off Friday’s show. I loved the colors in this collection: lots of deep, dark plum, which was gorgeous, yet unexpected, for a summer line. The dark color was perfectly balanced by light, floaty fabrics.


Next was Margie Hogue’s collection for Awava, which stood out with its bright colors and prints. Awava sells clothing, jewelry, and housewares made by women of Uganda. By selling them at fair trade prices, they work to empower Ugandan women.    



One of my favorites of the evening was American Trash by Karma Jade. Her collection beautifully combined feminine and edgy elements, resulting in unique, wearable works of art. 


Finally, another collection I loved and wish I could have captured better on camera was Hilary Brown. Her line included swimwear with sleek lines and fun details, as well as dresses perfect for an after-beach date.


Here’s what I wore to this amazing night of fashion. Thanks once again to Meggy of Chasing Davies for taking my picture!
