If you answered BAMBOO to these questions you are a winner!
Bamboo is rapidly becoming one of the most popular fibers and can be found in towels, bedding, clothes, hospital gowns, socks and athletic wear. Because it has a luxurious, soft feel, it is often compared to silk and cashmere, but with the practicality of other washable and dryable fabrics. Since adding bamboo to our line five years ago, we have had an incredible response. We suggest you try our expanded line of bamboo tight, leggings, ankle socks (men’s and women’s) and crew socks (men’s and women’s).
Try Bamboo….you’ll love it and so will the environment!

OLE, YULIE!

West 18th Street Fashion ShowThe West 18th Street Fashion Show is one of the highlights of the summer as 18 young, talented fashion designers showcase their runway collections to a street packed audience in the Crossroads Art District in downtown Kansas City. The crowd eagerly gathered June 11 to see this year’s collections based on the theme, Summer in Spain.

OLE! The show did not disappoint.

Each fashion collection was a distinctive expression from each of the designers. One of the designers, Yulie Urano, was a newcomer to the show.

When talking to Yulie, she was very pleased with her designs and found the process exhausting but extremely energizing. As a recent graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute in fiber arts, Yulie was concentrating on her senior thesis until the middle of May. Once graduated, Yulie was able to turn her attention to creating her knitwear collection, showcasing her passion for fashion. The knitting needles were flying as the mid-June deadline approached.

Yulie Urano West 18th Street Fashion Show Collection

When asked what inspired her designs, Yulie said it was the bold bright colors and feminine aspects of Spain.

She described her collection as “fun, feminine with an unconventional twist.”

That is definitely a good description as Yulie used large twisted yarn to create all of her pieces. She made the long strips of thick yarn on a knitting machine and then knit each fashion piece herself. The bright colored yarns and garments were punctuated with contrasting colored fashion tights from Foot Traffic, creating an invigorating knitwear collection, as seen in this great photo by Tiffany Matson.

What’s Under YOUR Wedding Dress?

Don’t let your legs be last

Paris Texture Tights

The perfect man….
The perfect dress…
The perfect flowers…
The perfect cake…
The perfect legwear…WHAT?!!

Yes, the perfect legwear!

Planning a wedding takes time, patience and remembering every detail. Finding “the one” dress is almost as important as finding
“the one” husband. The dress includes not only the beautiful dress and veil, but everything else “under the dress” such as the shoes, garter and undergarments, and stockings. The entire “package” is a personal expression of the bride’s personality so it’s an opportunity to be playful, fun and surprising.

I recently spoke with Michael Nolte, a well-known bridal consultant, motivational speaker, and designer with two bridal salons in Kansas City. Michael has been designing bridal gowns for over 25 years and has contracted to style over 1000 weddings since 1980. When I asked him what the ladies are wearing on their legs under their dress, he smiled and said that the current style is “au natural” with a simple garter. We are all familiar with the ceremony of the groom lifting the dress, exposing the leg and removing the garter. Brides are spending beaucoup bucks on their shoes so Michael thinks doing something special with legwear is a unique opportunity to add even more fun under the dress while showing some of the bride’s fun personality. There are so many beautiful and fun stockings, tights and thigh highs available.

Yes, beautiful legs are a natural solution but here are some fresh new options to make your wedding as unique as you are!
