KCFW SS'22 THURSDAY NIGHT RUNWAY - A RECAP





 







Its time for another recap from Kansas City Fashion Week Spring - Summer'22, from the Union Station,in Kansas City! It was my last night of coverage for the season, and you know I was excited. Thursday night runway shows were in honor of Ukraine. We had a few designers, Natalya Mayer of Lucia's Sarto and Olha Potapenko and Tatiana Yanchenko who used their designs on the runway to raise a voice against the war raging in Ukraine. My outfit was an ode to Ukraine, as well!

The evening began with the most mesmerizing performance by Quixotic! If you
yet haven't seen any of their performances, I would look for their next show, and book myself a ticket. 

The first showcase of the designer was Kindred, which is a local boutique collective. They have locations in Oak Park Mall and on the Country Club Plaza. They got us ready with the freshest of fits for Spring in Kansas City! Loved all the fun colors! 






The second designer of the evening was MacKenzie Greckel's Cicada Camp Company! She was one of the designers who previewed their collection at the media night of KCFW. She had mentioned about how sustainanbility features high on her design aesthetic. Her current collection was inspired by her time spent at Summer camps! The materials which made their way onto the runway for collection, had all been up cycled or were sourced from sustainable sources. And she had ABBA playing, need I saw more! Love ABBA, if bud dint know that already. 





The third designer of the evening was David Minh Moore's Maison Minh, who had also previewed his collection at the KCFW Media Night! He had mentioned about the juxtaposition of light and dark not only in oursleves, but also being a prevalent motif in his current collection. Loved the attention to detail, as his elegant cocktail dresses and gowns made their way to the runway. Definitely a great way to debut in KCFW. 






Jenn A Robbins was all about Drapes and Drama! She creates an all-body inclusive ready-to-wear collection that is a refreshing and exciting way to express yourself every day. I have seen her on the runway as a model and a designer. I love how she designs for women with curves. As a momma with curves, I believe we need more designers like Jenn, who will create outfits that we see ourselves in. Take a bow, Jenn! 





Next we had some previews for a few designers - Georgina Herrera, Little Jo Designs, Joshua Christensen,  and A Duane Topping.

A few years ago, Ulah brought about a new view in men's retail in Kansas City, with their ready-to-wear men's line. With Luna, they venture into ready-to-wear women's clothing, accessories and gifts! 





The next designer of the evening, is KCFW veteran Natalya Meyer of Lucia's Sarto! I have lost track of the number of times, I have seen her designs on the runway, and she wows every time with her creations. While romance and elegance are a recurring theme visible across her collections, Natalya's designs took a stand in favor of Ukraine this time! 







The next designer of the evening was Camille Alexandria Design! In. loved the pay of tulle and all the sheer details. It was dreamy, ethereal and so Spring-chic! 






Next was outerwear by Justine Christine! Loved the play of textures and the ode to luxe! I am definitely eyeing a few pieces for Fall, from the line. I am sure you would too. 





Olha Potapenko and Tatiana Yanchenko have been partners in the fashion industry since 2005. Both designers graduated from vocational schools in Ukraine where they were first introduced to the world of fashion. Since they joined forces in 2005 their work quickly became recognized on a national level for its exceptional quality. Their collection was their way of raising their voice against the war in Ukraine. This duo, like Lucia's Sarto are known for their ode to romance through their designs. But tonight was an ode to the Ukraine. As every immaculate design made its way to the runway, with an ode to the history-culture and spirit of Ukraine, every person in the audience was not only awestruck but also had a lump in their throat!







After such a hard-hitting finale collection, then audience were treated to yet another performance by
Quixotic. And that's a wrap for my coverage of this season's Kansas City Fashion Week!
