Our favorite week of the year is here. No, not spring break (although, we could use some sunshine). Saint Louis Fashion Week is finally upon us, with a handful of events and parties you can’t miss. One, in particular, Wear It: Fashion Challenge is slated to be a haute event, so we’ve put together a list of things you need to know right now, so you can grab your tickets, well, right now.

The Finalists
The ten designers are the best of the best and local celebrities that deserve a night in the spotlight. And we wish they all could win the cash award. In case you missed the list, the finalists include Michael Drummond, Nina Ganci, AJ Thouvenot, Nasheli Ortiz, Qun Liu, Destini Gamble, Barbara Bultman, Alexis Cook, Leah Babette and Tiffany Rae.

The Award
As we already mentioned, there’s an amazing cash reward. Alongside Siba, we will be presenting one winning finalist with $5,000. The competition is sure to be tough, so the judges will definitely have a hard decision ahead of them.

The Showcase
The contestants will be creating a look inspired by their chosen piece of artwork revolving around iconic and contemporary pieces. The garments will be showcased at a stylish affair at a favorite venue of ours.

The Cocktail Party
Enjoy the scenic location and fantastic art pieces on the walls at The Luminary on Cherokee Street. Another ALIVE event was recently held at this beautiful space and we’re so excited to spend another night here with all of the guests, contestants and judges!

The night will be a chance to bring together the art and fashion communities and celebrate the talent within our city. The finalists are hard at work and we cannot wait to see what they’ve got up their sleeves. We hope you’re ready to join us for a unique event and get some creative inspiration of your own.
