The Delmar Loop Special Business District hosted the first annual Style in the Loop Fashion Show to promote and embrace avant garde St. Louis fashion, independent designers, music, and models.
On Friday, October 14, the streets of the Delmar Loop were transformed into catwalks, dance floors and street side closets as local boutiques, designers, and models promoted unique style and fashion. Over 30 businesses including Craft Alliance, Ziezo, Devil City, Napps-Sexy Budda, and Diversity Gallery, presented their creative designs. Project Runway alumni and local fashion designer, Michael Drummond, also made an appearance hosting a trunk show at Craft Alliance.
Mekhat Moore, owner of Napps and Sexy Buddha Boutique originally came up with the idea for Style in the Loop, thinking it would be a fantastic way for boutiques to show off fall fashions and creating a unique outdoor fashion event. Moore says, “My boutique is dedicated to people who have their own style. We offer unique pieces that are made by local designers and me.”
Jessica Bueler, Event Coordinator for The Loop, says, “The great thing about being in The Loop is that we don’t follow trends, we create them! A unique event like Style in the Loop that has window displays, street fashion shows, trunk shows, live music, art, and DJ’s spinning on the street, what more could you want?”
Carol Crudden, owner of Ziezo, says that her boutique “doesn’t follow the trends.” “We are more fashion independent and carry the brands and labels that are blogged about but not really sold in stores.”
