STLFW Fall 2013 Sneak Peek

 In Feature, Style

Saint Louis Fashion Week expands to 10 full days of fabulous fashion.


The fall 2013 edition of Saint Louis Fashion Week promises to be bigger and better than ever—with 10 full days of runway shows, designer showcases, shopping events and more, Sept. 26-Oct. 6.

“We’re thrilled to expand the Saint Louis Fashion Week lineup and further our commitment to supporting the local fashion and design communities we’ve helped build,” says Elizabeth Tucker, executive producer/co-founder of Saint Louis Fashion Week and publisher/co-founder of ALIVE Magazine. “I think STLFW attendees are going to be really inspired by what we have in store this year.”

The fusion of local fashion talent and national designer presence at this year’s event is perhaps the most notable of the changes that are expected to take STLFW to the next level. Anthropologie’s Samantha Pleet, “Project Runway All Stars” Casanova and Laura Kathleen and Wai Ming’s Emily Koplar are just a few of the exciting designer names that will make appearances on the STLFW runways. Plus, STLFW will host its first ever St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards (nominate your fave blogger now).

Keeping its long-standing tradition of giving back, STLFW and its partners are proud to announce that 100 percent of the ticket proceeds for its ever-popular Plaza Frontenac and Saint Louis Galleria shows will benefit SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center and HavenHouse St. Louis respectively. (Find out more about each of STLFW’s featured charities in the STLFW Gives Back sidebar below.)

“Saint Louis Fashion Week gives Plaza Frontenac and Saint Louis Galleria an opportunity to join the party through our runway shows, which highlight some of the best fashions from both malls and benefit local charities SSM Cardinal Glennon and HavenHouse,” says Jean Ahsmuhs, marketing manager for Plaza Frontenac and Saint Louis Galleria. “It’s hands down the best fashion party in the market, providing local fashionistas with fun events and an unforgettable experience.”

Saint Louis Galleria and Plaza Frontenac shows will feature the latest must-have fall looks from their top stores, so be sure to check as brands are confirmed and announced. And don’t forget: These charitable runway shows serve double duty as shopping events, so come prepared to shop for your outfits for the rest of STLFW.

As for the remaining shows and events, our lips are sealed until the official schedule is released at In the meantime, we’ll share these telltale numbers—which are sure to get you just as psyched as we are for the 2013 expansion. Thirty-six local, national and regional designers, 10 venues, 22 retailers, 70 models and 30 fashion bloggers…need we say more?
