kcfw: saturday afternoon presentation recap

saturday morning began with a great cup of coffee followed by tons of texts to my closests girls and my hubby, to make sure they thought my outfit would be just right. love y'all for the the support! i picked up lauren, from classy and fab girl and we headed to union station. 

when we arrived we were taken backstage and saw the hair in make up in action.  it was so fun to see all the hairstylists teasing and spraying and pinning, while the make up artists transformed these beautiful girls into glam girls! utla gave us an amazing (no, really) gift bags full of great new product. (don't worry, i'll let you know everything, and what i loved).

 now onto the shows. i wanted you all to really see my favorite shows and why i loved them. the presentation by andrea marie long designs was a fan favorite, starting with the designer presentation and trunk show, the night before. her models were decked out and her looks were perfectly styled, from the hats, gloves, and deep rouge lip. plus, she used a fur of her grandmothers for some of the designs ( i'm pretty sure my great grandmother would turn over in her grave if i cut up her mink coat), but i do have to say i was blown away and had no idea the fur was real. i did wonder where this girl got such great faux fur from, haha. i have very impressed with anna's vision and craftmanship. i can't wait to see what she presents in september. 

the l.o.d. designs presentation was a very happy and feminine presentation. the flowy tropical fabric paired perfectly with the structured yellow fabric used for tops and bottoms for the collection. the drapery of her fabrics was beautiful. i especially loved the accessories her models wore - huge gold wrist cuffs and ear cuffs and with green and yellow feathers attached. this line feels like it needs to go on a vacation, and it wants to take me with it. am i right?

and last but not least, oblivion clothing design. talk about attention to detail. this girl knows her way around a machine. each piece was more gorgeous than the next. i mean, look at how diverse and gorgeous all three looks are. oh and the hair, and make up. my favorite of the night for sure. lots of mini crimps, teased into perfect bouffant mohawks. i loved how original  each piece looked and felt. now, how can incorporate these pieces into my everyday life...

the full list of all the designers can be found on kansas city fashion week's designer page. all of the designers (mentioned above) made these each piece by hand, if you are wanting to inquire about any of them, drop them a line. i know they would be flattered. vintage fur anyone?

stay tuned for the rest of my kcfw recap this week!
