Last night was the Memphis Fashion Week Runway Show* for the EMDP Applicants and it was sooo good! There were 10 designers, with some showcasing a Singles Collection and others a Mini Collection. Each set of collections will be judged two ways: via a panel of judges (designer Pat Kerr, musician Grace Askew, and costumer Bruce Bui), and audience choice. First place winners each will receive a scholarship to MCA’s Continuing Education Fashion Design classes, gift card to Spoonflower, and auto acceptance into next year’s EMDP. Second place winners will receive a $50 gift card to Spoonflower.

My vote goes to Clara Seigler for the Mini Collection. I loved how dark yet slightly ethereal her collection was, and don’t even get me started on the laser cut detail. That’s dedication! For the Singles? Camilla Curran. The color + pattern on that romper is pure fun, and the silhouette is quite contemporary. It totally put me in the mind of something Solange would wear.
*Both Dilettante Collection + Mara Hoffman showed last night as well, but due to the size of their collections, they’re getting their own respective posts. A city style post is coming too! Stay tuned!
