St. Louis Fashion Week 2011: I was really impressed by the Macy's show on Wednesday 10/12. Everything from charity to what-to-wear-to-a-Cards game was St. Louis oriented. Luckily we're having a warm fall and the layers are appropriate for our colder days. SEQUINS, faux fur (INC), equestrian/Euro vibe! Every single pair of outfits was well coordinated and Macy's finished off with their classic red incorporated into every ensemble. Afterwards, shopping was opened and we could buy the things we found on the runway (with discounts too)! This show made me feel like fashion is accessible to anyone (including guys!) and if you rock what you're wearing with a smile, you're set in style.
The stage was T-shaped. The models would walk out in pairs, one heads to the left and other to the right. Then they took turns walking to the end of the catwalk, where I was able to snap some shots of every outfit with my T2i kit lens (18-55 mm zoom). They were so freaking tall and I absolutely love that they smiled as they strutted. The lighting was great and considerate towards the media, and I liked the purple/pink aura. Last but not least, the music was popular, commercial Top 40 songs (Party Rock Anthem, Last Friday Night, etc). Read my post about the pre-show party and shopping details.
