STLFW Unites Spring Styles and Stories of Survival

It’s fashion week in St. Louis! Last night, I attended the kickoff event of Saint Louis Fashion Week (STLFW), a Spring Style Soirée at the West County Center. The event was packed with inspiration. We were inspired by the spring styles curated by Sarah Stallman, Fashion Editor at Alive Magazine, and we were also inspired by the strength and swag shown by seven cancer survivors who walked the runway in the opening presentation.

Here are a few highlights from the runway presentation at the event. The looks come from Macy’s, Nordstrom, The Limited, Gap, Altar’d State, and Banana Republic.

Macy’s: Graphic print mini skirt | Faux leather jacket

Ann Taylor: Fine stripe shirt | Fine stripe pants

The Limited: Halter jumpsuit | Clutch

Gap: Mesh sweater | Khaki shorts

Banana Republic: Cross-back pullover | Striped ponte pencil skirt

Cancer strikes one in three women. Last night’s event was particularly special, then, because 100% of proceeds benefitted the Siteman Cancer Center, an institution at the forefront of cancer treatment, research, prevention, education, and community outreach. As an added bonus, the event honored survivors who walked the runway holding cards indicating the number of years they’ve been kicking cancer’s butt.

There were several others involved in setting the mood for this successful event. Angie Lewis of Honey and Denim was a superb host. DJ TrashTalk kept the energy high with the perfect sounds. Jenni Radosevich of I SPY DIY and The Foundrie helped folks explore their creative skills at an on-site DIY booth.
