The runway was filled with hot spring looks, an impressive roster of special guests—and one $25K winner—at the Caleres Emerging Designer Award runway event presented by Saint Louis Fashion Fund last evening at the kickoff to Saint Louis Fashion Week. More than 1,200 St. Louisans came to celebrate fashion in St. Louis and the top five finalists of the award: Novis, Echaus Latta, Houghton, Haus Alkire and Azede Jean-Pierre. After an impressive showing of each SS16 collection, the prestigious panel of jurors deliberated and announced the big winner: Katharine Polk of Houghton.
