KCFW FW'19 - WEDNESDAY NIGHT RUNWAY - A RECAP

Time for some long-due posts from Kansas City Fashion Week. I had attended KCFW Fall Winter-19 some time back, and it was as spectacular as ever. This post and my other posts got immensely delayed, as my family got handed out the worst curveball by life. I and my husband were celebrating our 10th Marriage anniversary when my husband felt sick. He was diagnosed with Stage 2 Testicular Cancer and had to go in for emergency surgery. He will be starting his chemos soon. Now, you know why I had been MIA from the blog. Anyways, let's get back to KCFW memories, shall we?

Besides the Media Night at 28 Event Space, I attended Wednesday and Thursday nights of runway shows. I know, those are not my typical nights for KCFW, but I decided to try out something different this season. This season's runway shows were held at the Grand Hall of Kansas City, downtown, with a European style runway. Very Thankful to Team KCFW for the fabulous Front Row seats, on both nights.


 If you haven't yet checked out my recap of KCFW FW'19 Media Night, then click Here.

The first designer of the evening was Kamber Elyse(Kamber Causemaker). She launched her latest collection RED: a spur of the moment, kick of the boot, take no bull collection. She defines herself as a country soul with couture goals. From tortoise-shell to fur, from shoulder details to a variety of hemlines, loved the eclectic mix. The earthy tones of the collection made it so Fall-perfect!
The next designer of the evening was Sew Unrelaxed (Missy Isamoore). She gets inspiration and boldness of her designs from experiencing different cities. One look at the colors and prints of her current collection will show you how her collection and style can be best described as AfroPolitan- a mix of Afro-centric and Cosmopolitan. Sew Unrelaxed features casual wear, swimwear, evening wear, and even menswear. And if you had thought vibrant pinks were a Spring -Summer staple, then she forces you to re-think about your color palette for Fall-Winter

Shelby Harvey is a designer based in Springfield, MO. While "Bridal wear," is her first love, she is interested in bringing her unique design perspective into ready-to-wear line. Her latest collection is inspired by Proverbs 31 and Virtuous Women and marked her debut in Kansas City Fashion Week. From flared pants to fanny gaps, from graphic tees to dreamy capes, I loved her attention to detail, in her ready-to-wear collection.


The next showcase was by Eddie Bauer from Oak Park Mall, who brought in the hottest colors of the season, in the coolest of outerwear

Hally Vollbrecht was the next designer of the evening. She had studied fashion not only at Iowa State but also at London Colleg of Fashion. She has worked in the industry interning for Marchesa, also at Free People as an assistant designer, to name a few. Loved how edgy yet romantic her collection was. The risque element clearly stole my heart.

Last but not least was XYZ by Jason Metzler. He was on Project Runway Junior and he has been creating clothing which empowers women. His goal is to make women all the world feel confident and powerful. And his latest collection was true to his goal. What an amazing finale, to the first night of runway shows, for a brand new season of KCFW.
