I had never attended Kansas City Fashion Week before, until this year when I was invited to.. which I can say I wish I had gone in during the past years. The two-day event was held at Union Station, which I post about occasionally here, and that location was a perfect choice. The lighting during the afternoon shows was amazing, but I could tell I was finding myself getting too drawn to the designs to focus on photographing the pieces. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen a few runway pictures and snapshots of my outfit from Kansas City Fashion week, which my phone was honestly my choice of camera besides when I was seated.
Besides the runway shows themselves, I was allowed backstage to see the make-up artists prepping the models and all the other before-the-show features. Ulta Beauty was one of the main sponsors for Kansas City Fashion Week this year, and they gave out the most wonderful gift bags backstage. I adored admiring the pieces on their own, before they were worn on the runway. We were also served some of the most delicious whiskey cocktails from the Kansas Clean Distilled Whiskey. I am so glad that I attended KCFW this season, and that we have such a wonderful and inspiring event in my hometown. Huge props for the event coordinators and designers, I was most defiantly inspired to start making a few pieces of my own again and met many inspirational people throughout the weekend.
