The fashionistas and Scott Disicks of Saint Louis descend on Plush Saint Louis tonight to kick off Saint Louis Fashion Week. Get your tickets here for $10 or at the door for $15. General Admission begins at 8pm and is 21+. The Rally Saint Louis team will be there, talking about Saint Louis and how comfortable our Levi Jeans are even if they aren’t high fashion.

What’s going down? A no seat fashion show with DJ TrashTalk and Elise Lammert, and a never-before-seen presentation from designers Laura Kathleen, Michael Drummond, Paulie Gibson and KayOss Designs.

We’re not exactly sure what to look for, so we asked Emily Iovaldi of Fox & Gypsy to fill us in.

“I am most excited about all the fantastic colors and prints. I am ALL about prints and mixing them. Anything goes when it comes to the right patterns; for example, currently I love a great floral print mixed with some black and white striped pants, or even just a really great vibrant spring color paired with a patter. I am getting anxious about all the upcoming styles just talking about it! There is such an art when it comes to fashion and I think that is what draws me to it so much. What better canvas to use as a creative outfit then ourselves!”

She was also kind enough to provide advice to the less-than-fashion-savvy, such as myself. “When it comes to fashion, I think its important for people to, if nothing else, understand that it is not some sort of vanity fare,” Iovaldi explained. “It, like anything else, is a way for people to express themselves. In the end, it doesn’t matter WHAT we are wearing or how that looks to other people; it’s about creating something that is our own. Sure the clothes we wear are not self designed, but they way we wear it most certainly is!”
