It’s all about that walk, Guuurl!

Jacob Zauche, Trixies Salon

Whether you’re a fashionista or a fashion disaster, there is no experience like being at Fashion Week! Seeing the work of designers and stylists coming together to make flawless and cohesive looks walking down the runway in front of tons of people is truly like nothing else! The models make it all seem so easy as they strut down the runway, but behind the scenes the race to finish the perfect look takes every moment up to them walking down the runway!

Trixies has been a part of KCFW for several years, partnering with @Xiphium Aveda Salon to collaborate on hair and make-up. This year we worked with designer @christianMICHEAL and to create a signature looks to complete their designs!

Christian Micheal is a self-taught Kansas City designer whose tailored jackets are bold, modern, and to die for. His collection for KCFW 2018 was sHe, a complete line designed around women’s fashion. The collection included a full gown, poncho, day dress, leggings, and his specialty tailored jackets! Hair styles were inspired by texture along with sleek ponytails to mirror the lines and modern look of the collection. Make-up had a signature red lip to to pop with the bold colors in the collection with strong eyeliner and lashes to give a flare to the eyes.

I know Trixies and myself have marked our calendars to attend KCFW 2018 Fall to see more fabulous fashion and hair. If New York Fashion Week is out of reach, make KCFW your fashion fix this fall and we’ll see you there!
