Memphis Fashion Week celebrates “local and regional fashion through designers, photographers, models and boutiques. Proceeds from official events benefit The Memphis Fashion Design Network.” This style recap will be a “rolling” blog post for the next three weeks. I will add each event’s look on a weekly basis. Stay tuned!
The first event I attended was the Trunk Show were headlining designers hosted a pop-up shop on the Highland strip. This event was super cool, because A portion of all sales will benefit MFDN. With this event my goal was casual and cute. I wanted to recreate a look with my sheer dress with jeans as well as be comfortable in my block heels. Mission accomplished.
Style Notes: My jeans are true to size in an 18. My red block heels are also true to size in a 10. My sheer dress is oversided and the size large is perfect.
The next event I attended was the Featured Designer Runway Shows that took place at Graceland’s Presley Motors Museum. This show featured looks from T I E N A from Memphis, TN, Daniel Maganta from Orange County, CA, This Is Sloane from Austin, TX, Ituen Basi from Nigeria, and Rachel Roy from NewYork, NY. This event was chic so I opted for this little black dress that spoke volumes. It was soft figure flattering and moved with my body. I went with some comfy tapestry platforms (similar) and tassel earrings to complete this outfit.
Style Notes: I am wearing a 0x in this dress and I suggest you go down a size. I am usually a 1x, but with the fabric content I sized down. My shoes (similar) are true to size in a 10.
The last Memphis Fashion Week event I attended was the Emerging Designer Runway show that took place at Memphis College of Arts. This show was especially amazing because it featured designers who were selected from a call out for sketches last Fall. These designers then had “approximately six months to make their designs runway-ready by selecting fabrics, creating patterns, sewing their pieces, and fitting models.” For this event I could not wait to wear this navy bodycon. This navy bodycon was everything and fit incredible. I added my all-time favorite kimono (similar) this kimono is super old, my tan block heels, and a gold clutch.
