KC Fashion Week: Wednesday Night

If you were following me on Instagram this past week, then you saw that I attended four runway shows at Kansas City Fashion Week! As always, I had a fantastic time getting dressed up in my most fashion-forward outfits, rubbing elbows with some of my favorite Kansas City bloggers, and checking out what the biggest trends will be in spring/summer 2018!

Today, I'll be covering Wednesday night's show, and my coverage of the other nights will be spread out throughout the rest of this week. Before I get started on the fashion, here's what I wore! I bought a floral bomber jacket (which I've been wanting to try for a while) and styled it with a simple white tank, olive pants, and booties.

Crystal Arcade:

This was a really fun and unique collection inspired by anime, science fiction, and historical fashion. I really enjoyed seeing the designer take those concepts and incorporate them into modern fashion!



This collection of ethereal, flowy dresses made me think we might be seeing a lot of white next spring (more so than normal.) I also saw a lot of silk, in this and other collections, that has silk on my TrendWatch 2018! (I just made that up, hope you like it.)



This was another designer who used a LOT of white in their collection. I really enjoyed how the crisp floral pattern popped against the white in some of these looks!



Nokota's collection was inspired by rodeo-wear, so we saw horse prints, fringe, and suede. These designs had a very Western look which I thought was very unique since I haven't seen that aesthetic on the runway before!


House of Pamela Renee:

Pamela Renee's whole collection was wonderful, but when the model in blue came out at the end, it was the most breathtaking moment of the show for me.


Rachel Pollak:

I LOVED the bright, vibrant colors in this collection, and the way they juxtaposed with the white in each outfit really made the colors pop!



Yoro is a jewelery line, but the jewelry was displayed over super-cool outfits that would still be awesome on their own! I enjoyed the designer's use of unconventional fabrics as a canvas for their accessories.


So, that's a wrap on Wednesday's show! Keep an eye out for my recap of the Thursday night show in a couple days.
