While Thursday night was the last of the runway shows :(, it was jam packed with amazing fashion and full of beautiful people :)!!
Surprisingly this was the ONLY look I had completely picked out for the week. I knew exactly what I was going to wear and I was excited! Mostly because the knee-high boots I wore, had been hidden in my closet for about 3 years!! I have no clue as to why I never broke these bad babies out but they were an impulse buy and I almost gave them away several times! My leather jacket and black dress helped to give me an edgier vibe for the night’s festivities!
Like the previous day, all ambassadors were given the chance to do a mini meet and greet with the designers before the show and one conversation that really stuck out in my mind was our chat with Neil, the designer from the Saint Rita Parlor.
Neil was incredibly laid back and it was a joy to hear about the inspiration behind his collection! We learned that not only did he choose to launch his collection at STLFW but also the collection is a representation of the story of his life. He stressed the importance of putting content behind his collection with calling it Ivy League meets the Wild West! A fun fact behind one of the trench coats in his collection was that the 33 buttons represented the life of Jesus Christ. Since his grandfather was catholic and a prisoner of war, he played with the juxtaposition of Catholicism and the military. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing his collection. The trench coat with the high neck was simply divine!
As we settled into our seats there was a noticeable buzz regarding the designer’s that were about to show their collections. Not only did these designers JUST show at NYFW, the show had the longest runway in STLFW history! Everyone had their camera’s prepped and ready to capture the perfect moments of the show!
Check out some of these amazing moments from each designer!

After the show we all headed up to the Grand Hall to unwind and dance the night away! DJ Billy Brown was there and I was so giddy because I absolutely adore his playlists! Let me just say the newly renovated Union Station is absolutely gorgeous!! I see myself taking many BStyle shoots in there this winter! lol
