And finally, a recap of Friday night Runway shows of Kansas City Fashion Week's Spring Summer'19. Apologies for the delay, but a surgery, moving and an ongoing renovation sucked the creative juices out of me.

So who is ready to talk all things fashion! Friday night was the only runway show I could attend this season. Trust me, we are going back to the old schedule, come next season. For the last few years, KCFW has moved their Fall-WInter shows to the Grand Hall of KC, but the Spring -Summer shows remain at the old stomping grounds - Union Station KC. Undoubtedly the most magnificent venue of Kansas City. So many memories of past years(not only seasons) with the KCFW crew at this amazing venue, and I was so excited to be back. To see the magic unfold again.
Talking of the KCFW crew, they have almost become family over the years. The warmth is undeniable. The hard work which goes into pulling off this fashion mammoth is beyond comprehension. Thank you team KCFW for making our city such an amazing fashion hot spot. Thank you, for having me, yet again, to be a part of it all. Honored and humbled.

For me, Fashion Week is also a time when I get to spend some quality time with my favorite creative crew. Be it photographers, bloggers, fashion designers, makeup artists KC is home to such wonderful creatives. All thanks to KCFW that twice a year, we all come together. While some create magic behind the scenes, some of us capture that magic as it unfolds on the runway.

Now for my favorites from the designers who took the runway by storm on Friday night at Union Station.

Lenzanita's L'amour Holiday collection kick-started the evening. Their collection was dedicated to the awareness for women to take an active role in learning the risk factors of heart disease, and what women can do to keep a healthy heart.

Crystal Brakhage brought in fur and leather for a Spring-Summer show, and we fell in love with it. Fashion Week is a mix of fashion and drama, and the evening's drama had surely begun with this collection. Her target customer is a woman who is not afraid to be who they are, and be a little different.

A few months before the film  "Bohemian Rhapsody," released on the big screen, Anna Leigh evoked "Queen," as she brought forth her collection on the runway. AnnaLeighh is interested in KCFW, as she feels it is a great way to get recognized. Her monochromatic avant-garde pieces surely set the drama quotient a bit higher for the evening.

Elyse Anastacia's collection, named Dolores, is based on the skyline of Chicago. Yet another monochromatic collection, which makes us wait for Spring with bated breath. In Elyse's design, she focuses on architecture imitated through complex pleats and water imitated through volume.

Designer Justin Hope's line Naava Swim seeks to create swimwear which makes women of all shapes and sizes, comfortable in their own skin. Love the citrus pops of color, to classic monochromes, there was something for every woman. I am someone who has been campaigning for body positivity for more than a decade, so when a collection like Naava Swim is on the runway, it just means, that body positivity is on an all-time high. Every woman is beautiful, and they need to know that.

If you ask my toddler what is her favorite store in town, she will undobtedly start talking of Oak Park Mall's Disney store. Every season, the Disney store, brings out a  collection, which surely inspires parents like us, and makes our shopping trips easier. This season was no different!

Designer Ameli Skoglund Blaser's line, Ideas from the North, is based on her Scandinavian aesthetics. Loved her clean lines, and mix of knits and fibers.

Designer Rachel Pollak returned to the KCFW runway with another stunning collection. Her collection was what you call Spring-perfect, with its dreamy and romantic silhouettes.

Amanda Casarez was the finale designer for Friday night. The brand's design philosophy is based on the duality of hard lines and feminine details, and a linear design aesthetic, with a focus on texture, structure and color.

I had a great time covering KCFW, as offcial media, for yet another fabulous season!

Thank you Eli Stack, David Bram, Jason Atherton, and Larry F Levenson, for capturing me in various moods throughout fashion week, this season. !
