Missouri Fashion Week

Kelly Moffitt | St. Louis Public Radio

Summer Albarcha is not your typical Saint Louis University college student. She’s worried about balancing her classes and personal life, yes, but for a reason you might not expect. This 20-year-old is a busy fashion blogger who has garnered some level of international attention for her “modest fashion” blogging—which means she covers up, fashionably, while many other fashion bloggers dress down.


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.
