A designer's masterful creativity makes my imagination soar to far off places and fills my heart with wonderment. Most of our 9-to-5 jobs don't necessarily allow for all that fanciful fashion fun, which is why fashion week tends to create a frenzy of excitement for all of us fashion admirers.

This past week was my first time experiencing fashion at St. Louis Fashion Week. I had no idea that St. Louis even had it's own fashion week, so you KNOW I had to be there once I learned about it. From beginning to end, here's a look of what I saw at the Caleres Emerging Designer Fashion Show by the St. Louis Fashion Fund and Alive Magazine.

November 4
11:15 AM-3:59 PM: Filled the gas tank and sang in the car during my drive to St. Louis.

5:15PM: Rubbed elbows in Tiny Bar with Midwest Influencer Network bloggers.

6PM: Arrived to Union Station Hotel and stopped to snap a shoefie.

6:10 PM: Snagged a gin cocktail and met some blogger babes in the Union Station Grand Hall.

6:25 PM: While on my way towards the runway, I got distracted by a Caleres light box wall. :p

6:40PM: Explored the runway to map out my seat before the show.

7PM: The emcee kicked off the Caleres Emerging Designer Award by the Saint Louis Fashion Fund and Alive Magazine.

7:09PM: Novis (by designer Jordana Warmflash) hit the catwalk with colorful graphics mixed with straight lines and long silhouettes.

7:16PM: The models strutted down the catwalk in cool & edgy Azede Jean-Pierre looks.

7:25PM: Haus Alkire (by designers Julie Haus and Jason Alkire) stomped onto the catwalk in luxe tie-dye and commanding stripes.

7:34PM: Houghton (by designer Katherine Polk) dazzled the crowd in romantic lace looks with unexpected cut-outs and ethereal ruffles.

7:45PM: Eckhaus Latta (by designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta) displayed a collection of deconstructed chic outfits.

8:25PM: Houghton was named winner of $25,000 and the Caleres Emerging Designer Award. (Her collection was a show stealer for sure!)
