favorite styles from kansas city fashion week night one | kansas city fashion week spring 2013 | kansas city, missouri

I say this every year, but it’s true: Kansas City Fashion Week gets better and better each season.

Thursday night’s show featured limit-pushing designs from Maegan Stracy, No Human Intentions, Victrola, Andrea Marie Long Designs and American Trash.

Each of these designers — all from Kansas City except Victrola of St. Louis — showcased something that caught my eye, be it a color theme, use of texture, spirit of a piece or pure creativity in design.

Below are my favorite looks from Thursday night’s show.

maegan stracy kansas city fashion week

{Solid color — or lack of color, like this white outfit from Maegan Stracy — from head to toe will always get my nod of approval.}

no human intentions kansas city fashion week

{The theatrical looks from Nikki Fizer of No Human Intentions always catch my eye, but I especially liked the movement and texture in this look. Look at that tailfeather!}

{Here come the horns! The front of this No Human Intentions piece was straightforward, but the back … oh the back. Way to send chills down the spine.}

victrola kansas city fashion week

{St. Louis designer Lauren Cram of Victrola showcased ready-to-wear looks that I could see myself in on a typical Friday night. I love the coppery palette and pattern/texture mixing in this look.}

victrola kansas city fashion week

{Victrola’s amethyst gypsy look speaks to the gem tone trends and carefree yet stylish aesthetic of the Midwest.}

andrea marie long designs kansas city fashion week

{There’s something about a racing stripe and a crop top that seems very 2013 yet very Gwen Stefani circa “Tragic Kingdom.” Kudos to Andrea Marie Long Designs for showing that sporty can be chic.}

american trash kansas city fashion week

{I will always have a special place in my heart for American Trash by designer Karma Jade. Made from reused and repurposed materials, this eco-chic designer is proof that green fashion doesn’t have to be hippie; in fact, this vest looks pretty badass rockstar to me!}

{A showstopper American Trash train and major model attitude closed night one of Kansas City Fashion Week. I can’t get over the excitement this dramatic finale stirred! Well done, Karma Jade.}
