On day nine of the ten day Saint Louis Fashion Week extravaganza, St. Louis style mavens moved to various locations throughout the city for designer presentations and trunk shows. I headed to Saks with fellow STLFW bloggers for breakfast followed by a presentation by Tess Giberson, the designer behind The Tess Giberson Collection launched in 2001.
Here are a few photographs I snapped of my favorite looks from the Tess Giberson presentation:

At the end of the runway presentation, the audience had the special treat of hearing from Tess Giberson in a live interview lead by blogger, Haya of Good Good Gorgeous. The chat was enjoyable. Haya asked the right questions to allow Tess to naturally share her story. We learned of Tess’s background in art, pivotal moments in her design career like her internship at Calvin Klein, and that confidence is a core quality of the woman she designs for.
