The West 18th Street Fashion Show is an annual event held outdoors in Kansas City's Crossroads Arts District. Each year, the event organizers and a credentialed selection panel choose 18 designers to be featured on the West 18th Street runway. The 2013 show, themed Gilded Summer, will be held, June 8th at dusk. Scroll down to see photographs from past shows.
Each year, generous sponsors donate their resources to make the West 18th Street Fashion Show possible. As part of our family, sponsors have the opportunity to be associated with an award winning, high-profile event, which has become a cultural asset to the downtown and Crossroads Arts communities. This is the foremost fashion event in Kansas City. Each year, the awareness and audience has grown, and we now consistently draw a sell-out crowd of over 2,000 demographically diverse onlookers. These are the cultural tastemakers of Kansas City, and we are offering you the opportunity to connect with them.
