Kansas City Fashion Week celebrated its 11th season last week, from March 26th until April 1st. The Fall/Winter ’17 showcase offered four runway evenings and an amazing total of 37 designers. The event that used to take place at the Union Station premiered a new location, the spectacular Grand Hall at Power & Light in downtown Kansas City, MO.
The celebrations kicked off at the Bubbly & Bowties event at R24 Studios, with a strict cocktail and black tie dress code, unlimited champagne and a fabulous Dior beauty bar that gave us a little make-up upgrade with bold lipstick and a fierce cat eye. Sponsors included R24 Studios, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant, J. Rieger & Co. Dior, Events with Soul and AUI Fine Foods.
