The second night of the Kansas City Fashion Week had a very special, “red” vibe. The Kansas City Chiefs football team hosted their fifth annual Chiefs Style Lounge in collaboration with the KCFW and the result was absolutely glorifying. The entire venue was illuminated with red lights and a great amount of guests wore the color in their outfits as an honor to the team.
The runway shows featured the latest Chiefs apparel combined with pieces from KC Garment District Boutique and Dillard’s, worn by not only current, but also Alumni Chiefs Cheerleaders.
All designers were invited to engage in the “Chiefs Design Challenge”, where they could win a $1,000 prize for styling an outfit with a Chiefs Kingdom t-shirt.

In addition, five designers presented their S/S ‘17 collections.
The first one to hit the runway that night was Georgina Herrera, who brought her mesmerizing jewelry pieces on simple, yet classy black outfits.
Keefe Cravat showcased his one-of-a-kind neck wear collection full of colorful ties and bowties for the boldest gentlemen, who love to make a statement.
As third on the catwalk, Roger Figueroa and his contemporary dream collection for both men and women. His finale piece, a yellow “pants-gown”, completely blew us away.
Barbara Bultman Designs presented her unique clothing line, full of diverse materials accompanied by expressive make-up.
Last one on the runway was Kiana Godsey with a collection of astonishing bridal gowns and cocktail dresses for modern fairies.
