Guests came to the viewing of Rebecca Minkoff’s spring collection at Saks Fifth Avenue dressed to impress—and to shop. The event was a huge success, raising over $8,000 for the Saint Louis Fashion Fund from the donations of ticket sales. The fashion-loving crowd even had a chance to partake in an exclusive meet-and-greet with Rebecca Minkoff herself, as well as shop her spring summer collection right off the runway at a generous 25% off discount as part of Saks’ Friends and Family event.
From local fashion leaders to out of town guests, the crowd was sporting their finest spring gear while in attendance. We have rounded up our list of a few of the fashionistas—and fashionistos—that caught our eye.
