Wednesday Runway Event - KC Fashion Week

This was my first year attending KC Fashion Week and after Wednesday's Runway Event,
I'm hooked.
Outfit details linked at the end of the post + on Instagram
In addition to challenging myself to put together looks that were outside of my normal repertoire, I got so many ideas for new fashion trends from the runway and the fashion of the attendees! It was also amazing to have the opportunity to connect with other fashionable Midwesterners and meet people I'd only known online in real life. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some collaborations!

Read on to learn more about the designers at Wednesday's Runway Event and to see some of my favorite looks! Also, my camera pooped out and phone died not very long into the event BUT the wonderful Bella Lightner was so kind and let me use some of her photos. I've credited the pics she shot below but make sure to check out her blog and Instagram. She's incredible!

Their line for Wednesday's runway event was said to be inspired by video games and involved a lot of laces, mesh, and elastic banded tops and shorts.

Designs by Miranda Hanson

Miranda Hanson is an immensly talented 17-year-old high school student who started sewing at the age of 12 and has been involved in both Kansas City Fashion Week and Omaha Fashion week. Her designs absolutely blew me away and consisted of stripes, bold colors, pattern mixing, floral appliques, and some of the most gorgeous and interesting silhouettes I saw.

J. Manning Apparel
J. Manning is a designer specializing in men's and women's fashion. Their KCFW collection was primarily outerwear focused and featured ornate and lush fabrics including brocades, velvets, and metallics with perfectly tailored lines. I loved that the men's outerwear specifically featured fabric types that aren't usually seen in menswear (for example, tailored men's coats in brocade or velvet). I would love to cuddle up in any of these gorgeous coats this winter!

 Kelia Jadlow
Kelia Jadlow is a Kansas City native who graduated from Johnson County Community college in Fall of 2016 with an Associates in Apparel Design and Technology. Her line was inspired by 70s fashion and was what I called "librarian chic" in the best way possible. Her line featured a color palette of mustards, browns, tans, and oranges and incorporated contrasting pocket patches and florals perfectly.

She learned how to design and make clothing from her mother who graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and featured her first pieces at Phoenix Fashion Week in October of 2016. Her full collection debuted at KCFW and featured some major pattern clashing contrasting busy geometric fabrics with bold, bright abstract motifs.

Oliviet by Tobie Marie
Oliviet is a design collection by Tobie Marie and has some major Jackie O. vibes happening! The pieces are designed for girls and women and have a fashion-forward professional look about them. Absolutely 50s inspired, the line featured pastels, bright whites, and pops of color with a modern take on classic silhouettes.

 Sheraz Pompey
Sheraz Pompey is a Kansas City based fashion designer featuring absolutely stunning gowns and menswear. Floor length capes, rose appliques, sequins, high necks, glittery translucent fabrics, velvet, and gold accents were featured throughout this collection. The pieces have a phenomenal level of detail without being garish in the least. What's even more phenomenal was the level of craftsmanship in each piece - the tailoring was absolute perfection. I would absolutely LOVE to wear one of these goddess-level dresses. Every piece was perfection.
