The Time is Now-KSU Fashion Show 2011

The Kent State fashion show presented a wide variety of interesting inspirations and genres this year, debuting senior work as well as individual pieces created by underclassmen. Check out former intern Kelsey's McClellan's senior collection!

"My collection is inspired by organic architecture. Whereas a building complements its environment, clothing too should augment our natural shape. The resulting form is fluid and supple, like the body. My design reflects the liberation of the bridal genre from some of its formality and structure, and instead encourages celebration through simplicity, comfort, and the use of sustainable materials."

"Shoe Love is True Love!"

Marilyn Monroe, a famous fan of the peep toe heel, once said "Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world!" The peep toe heel has long been regarded as a fashion-forward mix between an open and closed toe bridal shoe. With a reference to vintage styling, the peep toe adds a flair of old hollywood glamour to any wedding look. To update this style for your event, try incorporating floral or gemstone details to this classic shoe silhouette to create a fashionable, yet distinctly bridal look. Check out these peep toes by the Grace Footwear line carried by A Bride's Design!

The Wedding Reception

I am delighted to say that our first ever "The Wedding Reception" bridal show at Avon Oaks Country Club was a success. Thanks to my fabulous models who rocked the gowns and all the very talented vendors who helped make our show incredible. My favorite part was test tasting the cupcakes from About the Cake. My taste buds were held powerless against exceptional selection... I just had to eat two!!! Everything was beautiful at the show and can’t wait to do it again!Thanks to "The Wedding Reception" Participating Vendors: A Bride's Design, A Touch of Italy Bed & Breakfast, About the Cake, Ahern Catering, Amy Nixon Events, Avon Oaks Country Club, Becky's Photography, Big Sky Travel Cecilia Ilg McKay, Harpist, Catherine's Chocolates, Event Source Isagenix, Jia Li Salon & Spa, Mary Kay, Shutterbooth, Silpada Designs, Streetplayers DJ Company & Emcee Service Trio Creative, Weddings in Cleveland, Willow House
