This October 12th kicks off the Spring/Summer 2010 fashion week in St. Louis. From the 12th to the 18th, there will be fashion shows, contests, receptions and after parties that will showcase the best of the St. Louis fashion industry. The first set of fashion shows will be on October 14th, when Bakers Project:Design, hosted by former Project Runway contestant Jillian Lewis, shows six lucky designers who will compete for $30,000. All designers are winners, however, because they get to show their line at one of the top fashion weeks in the country.
On Thursday, Bakers presents Current, which includes shows from four St. Louis boutiques: Byrd, Valerie Mills, Ivy Hill, and Mary Jane’s. Friday’s shows include a presentation from DIYStyle, which will introduce four new, young designers. On Saturday, the final day of shows, FGI will host Evolve, which includes designers such as last season’s Project:Design winner Michael Drummond, as well as another finalist Laura Kathleen. Laura Kathleen produced a beautiful show last spring when she unveiled her Fall/Winter 2009 collection inspired by birds of Missouri. Her show this fall will not disappoint!
