Dozens of designers spent months cutting, sewing and finishing their 2017 collections for Milwaukee’s Fall Fashion Week this September.
Edgy street threads to elegant evening wear are all on display at this month’s Milwaukee Fashion Week.
Get a peek at local designers’ newest creations.
On September 21-23, the city’s best-dressed will shimmy into their most eye-catching outfits and sashay into the Milwaukee Athletic Club’s Grand Ballroom for the third-annual Milwaukee Fashion Week, a three-day sartorial extravaganza complete with live music, industry mingling and – of course – fashion shows.
We invited four of the designers, all with local connections, to share a sneak peek at the looks they’ll be sending down the runway at this year’s event.
A long side slit lends this satin, sapphire-toned gown by Madalyn Manzeck a touch of vintage glamour, while the asymmetrical pleats are
very of the moment.
Emily Ristow designs with flexibility in mind – the double-knit shift shown here is reversible, while the jacket,
a French twill lined with nylon and fleece, features adjustable drawstrings on the sleeves and hood. A mixed metal choker from the Third
Ward’s Stephanie Horne Boutique (stephaniehorne.
com) completes the look.
