I had a fabulous time with some fellow bloggers at the 11th Annual Walk Fashion Show at The Garden Theater in Detroit.
I sat at the end of the runway with Jordan from lil miss JB Style and Leah from Beauty and the Muse.
I also snapped a few pictures before the show started with Daishawn, one of the Walk Fashion Show Founders and fellow Detroit Garment Group member.
I’m wearing a navy lace top from Loft with a J. Crew maxi skirt and Sam Edelman electric blue suede heels. I accessorized with a nude BCBG leather clutch and simple Madewell beaded necklace.
Some of my favorite designers from the show were: The Plush Life (swimwear) Lady Liberty, Junae’ Raye (the duo was also at NOiR show), Dark Odyssey Collection, Matthew Richmond and Vino Supraja
.The Paper Dress Code by Matthew Richmond is a unique take on eco-chic. I’ve never seen recycled materials used in such an elegant way. See more of Matthews work on his website: www.thepaperdresscode.com
Shani Ricks’s collection, The Plush Life, featured crochet swimwear. My favorite was a green & pink pseudo-camouflage crochet. Major props to these woman for pulling off these slinky swimsuits!
I am OBSESSED with Lady Liberty. Her detailed patchwork was breathtaking. Her ability to combine vintage, bohemian and modern fabrics was so beautiful. I especially loved the last look—a mermaid shaped multi-toned blue gown with leather and denim panels.
I saw a few repeat pieces from the NOiR Fashion Show that Junae’ Ray participated in, but overall their collection was just as clean and polished as I remembered. I could see myself wearing several of their tailored jackets and hooded capes.
The flowy silk fabrics used by Vino Supraja were stunning. Her line really brought the show up a notch by adding sophistication and elegance.
I’m usually not a huge fan of zebra print and neon blue but in this collection they worked. The Merocki line contrasted bright hues of blue and turquoise against classic black silk. I’m hesitant to say this but, I kind of liked it.
The Dark Odyssey collection was just that: dark and seductive. The leather and lace gowns were acceptably risqué. I actually really enjoyed some of the mens’ jackets. The zippers and collars were on point.
