Attention all fashionistas…or just fashionista wannbes!

Your time has come: Kansas City Fashion Week .

For the next four nights, at The Grand Hall at Power and Light, the runways will be filled with the latest looks and delightful designs.

Georgina Herrera is one of the designers showing off her wares. She creates accessories for “today’s woman,” with a focus on the right look for the right moment.

Something for that meeting at school…something different for a night on the town.

Herrera says one piece of jewelry can change the whole outfit.

The fashion history of Kansas City is a long one.

In the 1940s, the city’s garment district employed thousands. It was estimated that one out of every seven women in the United States had something made in KC.

Over the last decade or so, KC Fashion Week has continued to put a spotlight on our area’s design community.

In addition to taking attendees on a magical mystery tour of the coolest of couture, KC Fashion Week also gives back to the community.

More than $20,000 has been given to charity partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Wayside Waifs through the years. 

This year, the benefactor is the newly formed Kansas City Fashion Council, Incorporated, an organization designed to grow and connect the entire city’s fashion community and provide creative opportunities for all people.

No need to perfect your runway walk or your version of “blue steel.”

All you need to do is buy a ticket and soak in the beauty and imagination.
