West 18th Street Fashion Show

Since its inception 16 years ago, the West 18th Street Fashion Show has brought together the latest in taste making designs, from ready-to-wear to street wear, evening wear and conceptual wear. This event highlights Kansas City’s growing status as a center for fashion and design, both regionally and nationally.  Mark Southerland, producer of the fashion show approached me about shooting and sponsoring the fashion show several years ago. I have since been to several, shooting wide angle atypical shots for use on promotional materials and website use for the production.  The group felt that my approach to photographing the show gave a broad spectrum of both audience and atmosphere felt when attending the show.  The creativity expressed in the production as well as in the designs is a treat for me to experience as well as express with images.
