LB by Lauren Bander, out of St. Louis, was the first designer and right out of the gate was this cute little skirt and tank number unveiled by an oversized tulle skirt. I loved this reveal for the opening and how the model played with the tulle down the runway. Her finale look was the first photo shown at top of this post, an all tulle number worn perfectly by this model with beautiful red hair.
BMDesigns had a bright and cheery line that will be perfect come spring and summer.
Architexture, besides being a really clever name, had very elegant and classic designs. I loved the pop of cobalt (one of my long time favorite colors) throughout the show.
Rare Trends is made up of a sister-duo with a wide variety of designs right on trend. I loved the big hat and low back combo and this black maxi dress was amazing.
Of course no fashion show is complete without seeing the latest trends in menswear. christianMichael never disappoints and I love how he pushes menswear into a unique, very well-designed and yet, always classic way. I loved the cropped pant he had his men walking down in - very fresh.
Are you ready for swimsuit season yet? Ok, well I'm not either... but these fun swimwear designs by Hilary Brown make looking forward to next summer that much more exciting. Please notice the back of the aqua swim cover up. That white piece is made from a 3D printer. So cool that fashion incorporates technology.
That pretty lady in white is designer Kate Walz walking alongside her finale dress. Her own dress was refashioned from a vintage wedding dress. Another really interesting fact, Kate is only 16 years old and already an established women's wear designer specializing in event dresses. Miss Kansas Teen, Alyssa Klinzing has worn her dress in competitions and modeled for her (see top photo) this past weekend.
These talented ladies sure made for an overall great finale to a great night.
