Saint Louis Fashion Week: Project Runway

Saint Louis Fashion Week soared to extraordinary heights last night during the Project Runway show at the Fabulous Fox Theatre.  The evening began with a cocktail reception and a presentation by Scarlett Designs.  St. Louis was then wowed by runway presentations by former all stars from Lifetime reality series, Project Runway.  The designers included Michael Drummond, Joshua McKinley, Laura Kathleen, Casanova, Anthony Ryan, April Johnston, and Viktor Luna.  The design categories featured sportswear, evening wear, streetwear, and some styles that defy categorization.

Here are some of the photos I took at the show:

Michael Drummond’s collection is always a joy to witness and photograph.  His attention to detail and his penchant for drama is intoxicating.

Joshua McKinley’s collection was a clear stand-out and exciting to photograph because of his unconventional use of color (super bright ones) and fabric.

Casanova heated the Fox Theatre with his sexy designs, including his popular “naked dress.”  The details on his pieces, particularly the backs of his dresses, were impeccable.

Anthony Ryan’s collection was modern and sophisticated.  His line, completed in a muted color palette, was attention-grabbing because of his use of clean lines and sharp shapes.

April Johnston’s collection stayed true to her mission to design wearable works of art.

Laura Kathleen’s collection was all glam and dripped black and gold.

Viktor Luna’s collection drew inspiration from sportswear.  His usual vivid prints were electric.
