Social KC: KCFW Spring 2013, Red Carpet

With a packed house, the atmosphere was full of excitement and anticipation.  After pictures on a Red Carpet concrete floor, mingling with fellow bloggers and media friends (new and old) the show started with the sassy models of Courtney Perry’s House of Cochon:

Followed by another jewelry designer, Tracy McClain of Trajet Jewelry, whose stunning styling was every girl’s this girl’s dream come true:

Next up was Emma Lammers, whose weekend bags/over sized handbags gave new meaning to my mantra, “Speak softly and carry a big purse” – in a good way – they were amazing and I want one of each of them.  A huge shout out to her styling abilities as well:

Not to be out-done, Anna Friss of Blue Bird Apparel sent (somewhat distracting, yet very fun) mass amounts of helium filled balloons down the runway.  Don’t worry, they also wore clothes:


Amanda Clark of I Design With Love sent edgy feminism down the runway:

Then Katie McKenna of Pink Sheep Heiress wowed us with chiffon and spikes:

You need to see this dress in person.  It was amazing.

With a soundtrack (courtesy of GENT) that had us dancing in our seats (or tapping our feet…..and some of us singing – I mean, it was Frank Sinatra), Caroline Smith of Janie G. Couture brightened up the evening with:

DU Beauty Arts and Ashley Nelson nailed the Hair & Makeup for this show!

And, (add a dramatic pause here,) the show ended with the fabulous menswear designer Christian Micheal Shuster of christianMicheal.  (Add another dramatic pause) Ladies, gentleman.  I let the pictures speak for themselves:

Looks like one of those Mormon Missionaries 😉

Christian Micheal’s show was the cherry on the sundae, the icing on the cake.  Whether you loved or hated the evening, his show made it all worth it.
