Ending Saint Louis Fashion Week in style, ten area boutiques sprawled over five St. Louis neighborhoods hosted trunk shows featuring goods from ten local and national designers. Folks who were looking to snag pieces straight off the STLFW runway plotted their routes and hit the road—touring boutiques and shopping the looks straight from the hands of the designers. Here’s a closer look at Fashion’s Day Out.
