Birmingham Fashion Week 2015 kicked off exactly one week ago and it was absolutely incredible. It's amazing being around all of that type of energy. People that are supporting their friends, family, loved ones... and those of us that are in love with fashion! Here's my recap and let's start with the designers!
Gunnar Deatherage (Project Runway Seasons 9 & 10; Project Runway All-Stars Season 4)
Michelle Lesniak (Project Runway Season 11 Winner)
Laura Kathleen (Project Runway Season 9; Project Runway All-Stars Season 2)
I love seeing designs from the "Emerging Designers". There is truly some awesome undiscovered talent out there. I know how hard it is to get a clothing label off the ground. But I'm wishing these ladies much luck! Here are my favorites:
Emerging Designer - Leslie Beattie
Emerging Designer - Kayla Sherman
Emerging Designer - Kenya Buchannan
Emerging Designer WINNER - Shan Latris!
I love the local retailer shows. It's a true representation of our Southern Style here in Birmingham! These are my two favorites!
And for the finale, BFW founder Heidi Elnora!
This show was so energetic!
The models walked the runway to Karis Lamb Wilson KILLING IT on her violin.
I'm not really a traditional wedding gown woman.
We plan to renew our vows for our silver anniversary and I want something beachy.
So the gorgeous flowy, godess gowns really struck a cord with me.
And this was her showstopper.
The pictures just don't even do it justice. It was simply stunning in person.
Heidi gave a beautiful speech afterwards about following your dreams no matter how you started out in life. It was a wonderfully fabulous show and I can't wait until next year!
