Top 10 Reasons We Loved This Season of STLFW
From beginning to end, this season’s Saint Louis Fashion Week events were packed with countless memorable moments and reasons why people are saying this season is one of the best yet. Here are our Top 10…
10. The Swag
Along with exclusive deals and discounts from a variety of local businesses, guests walked away with the ultimate souvenir—a 30-page flipbook capturing your photo booth moments in motion.
9. The Unconventional
Skif charmed the audience with a fun runway presentation that included models from all walks of life sporting the St. Louis-based institution’s classic and modern knitwear at the Designer Showcase finale.
8. The Cause
At both Spring Into Fashion at the Saint Louis Galleria and Rebecca Minkoff at Saks Fifth Avenue, 100 percent of the proceeds raised went directly to organizations in our community. Wedneday’s Spring Into Fashion raised over $3,600 for charity partner Friends of Wings, a non-profit organization that assists children who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses, while over $8,000 in ticket sales to Rebecca Minkoff went to the Saint Louis Fashion Fund.
7. The Locals
St. Louis-based designers were on their A-game this season. We loved what we saw from designers including Michael Drummond, Blue Bird Apparel, Dipped & Dyed, Devil City and Skif.
6. The People
From countless models, volunteers, backstage crew and sponsorship partners to the hundreds of attendees from the St. Louis area and beyond, STLFW wouldn’t have been the same without you.

4. The Shopping
From post-show shopping of the Saint Louis Galleria’s top stores to the Saks meet-and-greet and shopping opp with Rebecca Minkoff to the Designer Pop-Up Shop following the finale show, fashionistas of STLFW were able to get their shop on all week long.
3. The Sweetheart
Rebecca Minkoff is not only a top national design talent, but she also happens to be one of the sweetest people in the biz. Her jam-packed runway show at Saks Fifth Avenue wowed the crowd and was followed up by an exclusive meet-and-greet and shopping session.
2. The Talent
From “Project Runway” All-Star Viktor Luna and CFDA-inducted fashion designer Novis to New York-based Harbison and nationally recognized STL favorite Skif, the STLFW talent was top-notch.
1. The Finale
STLFW ended with a bang at the beautiful Union Station that boasted a mile-long runway and plenty of elbow room. The scene brought the main terminal to life, filled with laughter and fashion in an unforgettable grand finale.
