The work of emerging fiber artist Grace Kubilius walks the walk while talking the talk. The conversation is about women and body image.

For the second time in two months, St. Louis is focused on fashion. St. Louis Fashion Week is back for its eighth fall season.
The 10-day event is a collection of fashion shows, exhibitions, and fundraisers that brings together both local and national designers to celebrate the best sartorial offerings in the region.
Today marks the beginning of the first-ever Missouri Fashion Week, which is taking place here in St. Louis.
The four-day event will incorporate the work of nearly 20 designers, and each show will help promote a local nonprofit.
