18th Street Fashion Show


This past Saturday night, June 11 at dusk,  the West 18th Street Fashion Show  showcased  yet another testament to the creative spirit and talent in Kansas City.  Thirteen creative fashion designers and jewelry designers showcased 5 outfits each that did not disappoint the fashion enthusiast looking for color, drama and creative interpretation of the “WILD SUMMER” theme.  This was the 16th year for this street side event that draws hundreds of spectators to 18th street in the Crossroads Arts District in downtown Kansas City.
The creative spirit behind the annual event is Peregrine Honig, renowned artist and owner of Birdie’s.  She has been with the show since its inception and continues to drive the creative personality of each show, along with a talented team of collaborators and local sponsors.  Mark Southerland is the executive producer and has been the musical director for the past several years, an important part of the flavor and energy of this event.
The designers are certainly noteworthy as each showcased their talents from head to toe, working closely with talented accessory designers that embellish the collections.  Foot Traffic offers legwear to all of the designers and several used socks or tights to highlight their ensembles. Brockstar happened to use our polka dot knee highs, OMG novelty socks, and our high top sneaker knee highs to highlight his fun collection.

We love the spirit of this annual event and support the freedom of expression that each designer shares with the community.

What a beautiful and fun way to spend a hot summer night!
