The Craft Alliance Makers Ball takes place next Saturday and in preparation, we are of course scurrying around town to snag a dress that’s well … made by a maker! Here are four local designers that have some formal options to snag if you still need something to wear on the big night:

1/ Michael Drummond: With a showroom conveniently located inside Skif Headquarters on The Hill, Drummond is a sure fire bet to find something unique, artistic and fashion-forward—even if you wait until the last minute.
2008 Marconi Ave., The Hill

2/ Q Liu: Also located on The Hill, Qun Liu creates one-of-a-kind masterpieces that are art pieces in themselves. Try one of the hand-painted pieces that are a part of her collaboration with Skif International, or a unique garment from her signature felted technique to immediately be considered one of the evening’s best dressed.
2008 Marconi Ave., The Hill -or- email the designer directly to set up an appointment qunliu6@gmail.com

3/ Wai Ming: With breezy silhouettes that always flatter the female form, shop a minimalist piece with just the right amount of detail from St. Louis-based designer Emily Koplar at local boutique Ivy Hill, or on the web.

4/ iheartfink: A rather under-the-radar maker, Kristen Kempton creates slow fashion garments that are comfortable and wearable, formal and casual, all without compromising her signature flair. Shop on the web.
