Every season of Kansas City Fashion Week, there are new people to meet, and old friends to catch up with. On Sunday, we attended the KCFW opening event, the Garden Party, and we got to speak with models, designers, bloggers, volunteers and staff. We loved to hear what everyone is up to! Whether you are new, and want to meet the Kansas City fashion family, or you know everyone, and just enjoy reading what they said, make sure to take a look.
So we all have had Monday blues. Weekends are so much fun, we can sleep in, and spend the day with family and loved ones; of course it's hard when Monday comes around! Well, if there's something that can fix up Monday blues it's good wine, chocolate cake and friendly people.
In a time where fast fashion supplies the market with inexpensive, but pretty much disposable items; it is imperative that we show more support to designers like Ami Beck and Christina Becchetti Moncke. Last week, Will and I had the opportunity to meet both designers when we covered a shoot for Kansas City Fashion Collaboratives Magazine.
Who leaves their country for another one? Who leaves a secure job for uncertainty? This is the story of Dani (Brazilian) and Mariano (Argentinian), who left their countries to venture into a smaller one, the one they wanted to explore together. Their desire to do something different, lead them to leave everything to move to Costa Rica.
With the growth of social media there are more and more people that launch their own fashion blog and share with other their unique style. Our country is a part of this huge phenomenon and has great blogs, including up and coming talent and some well-established ones. Marc (Revista Tigre) and I went out for coffee and while talking, decided to host a brunch to get to know a little bit more of those behind a #fashion blog.
