Here’s a look at what the designers brought to the runway last night for Kansas City Fashion Week 2019. Haute couture and high-fashion were on point throughout the evening—including a few rocker-chic looks that got the crowd revved up. Teisha Barber, the president of Kansas City Fashion Week, gave us a play-by-play of who’s who.

“Audrey was selected by Brad Austen, KCPT’s creative director, to be the KCFW designer feature in the new fashion documentary Walk, Turn, Walk, airing in May 2019. Her fall collection contains 12 looks inspired by the iconic rockabilly queen Poison Ivy, co-founder of the Cramps.”
