Kansas City Fashion Week will showcase 2015 winter/fall fashion collections for its seventh consecutive season. The event includes three full runway shows held at Union Station, March 19-21. A wide variety of designers from all over the country will be in town to promote and display their artistic creations.
Previous Project Runway contestants Laura Kathleen and Michael Drummond are two well renowned designers involved in the show again this year. Talented designers including Sara Kahrs, Lauren Bander, Marlee-Ju, Christian Michael, and many more will also be participating in the fashion festivities.
Local entrepreneurs around the metro are also hosting fashion shows to showcase the new designs in fashion this year.
Saffees gave us a peek at new spring styles and trends in their recent fashion show, held at Picture Perfect Interiors. Unique, eye captivating patterns and diverse colors were a key element in almost every ensemble worn. “Our show featured a variety of seventies prints, florals, and a mixture of color tones,” said Marie Adrian, owner. “This spring we will see bolder prints and patterns in tops and accessories.”
Prominent colors in Saffees runway were turquoise, sea foam green, navy blue, and a variety of yellow tones. These bright colors are found in tops, jackets, scarves and accessories, while skirts and pants are remaining more neutral. The emphasis this season is definitely on accessories, jackets, and shirts.
Accessories are key to completing and accentuating your outfit. Popular on the list are chunky necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Looking for something bulky or simple? Chains are a great way to add a little extra edge and shine to your outfit. “Large accessories, such as statement necklaces, are something that is popular this year,” Marie said. “Layering necklaces is also something upcoming and new to look out for.”
