Saint Louis Fashion Week
I am so thrilled to be attending my first Saint Louis Fashion week. I was lucky enough to score a press pass and will be covering 2 out of the 5 events on the blog. Here is some info about the event below from the press release that was sent out.
Saint Louis Fashion Week enters its fourth year of shows with Fall Fashion Week 2010!
The focus this season is on St Louis' top fashion retailers. Much like Vogue's Fashion Night Out, Saint Louis fashion week is focusing on ways to boost sales locally during a recession. Three of the shows (Wednesday - Friday nights) will take place inside retail locations: Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's at the Galleria and Plaza Frontenac. Each night will include a complimentary cocktail hour, a fashion show that presents the stores' best lines and an opportunity for fashionistas to shop the collection.
The week will culminate with the fashion event of the season, Liquid style. Happening in the recently renovated Old Post Office Plaza Downtown, the event brings together top St. Louis Boutiques Sole and Blues, Rung, NV Boutique, Klutch Boutique, The Eye Bar and Boutique 83 for a night of fashion by local retailers.
Also returning this year is the popular Project Design, an online fashion competition featuring local fashion designers.
Here is a link to where you can learn more and purchase tickets.
I will be covering the Project Design event on Tuesday night at Third Degree Glass Factory and Liquid Style on Saturday night at the Old Post Office Plaza.
If you are in the St. Louis area I would love to see you there! I will also be posting re-caps on the blog next week. I can't wait!
Now the only problem is figuring out what to wear : P So I thought I would post pictures over the next few days of outfits I'm considering and I'll let you decide. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post for outfit choice number 1.
Are you attending any fashion week events, whether it be in Saint Louis or New York or anywhere? If so, what will you be doing?
