Karlie Kloss, supermodel and entrepreneur, will soon be able to shop on her own street called Karlie Kloss Way in her hometown of St. Louis. The section will be between 15th and 16th Streets on Washington Avenue, which runs smack dab through the famous Garment District that’s being revived by the Saint Louis Fashion Fund and others.

The proposed bill creates the honorary street name Karlie Kloss Way, in recognition of the contributions that fashion model, entrepreneur, and CEO of Kode With Karlie, Karlie Kloss has made on the City of St. Louis, which honorary street shall begin at the intersection of Washington Avenue and North 16th Street and run east on Washington Avenue to the intersection with North 15th Street.https://www.stlouis-mo.gov/internal-apps/legislative/upload/boardbill/BB132-wd5%20combined.pdf
Karlie Kloss from Bravo TV’s Project Runway visited Saint Louis during her Hometown Tour. We all followed her from the Saint Louis Fashion Fund to The Last Hotel STL on Washington Blvd. which represents the exact section of the proposed Karlie Kloss Way.
I wanted to say hi to Jenna Barns and Bob (the awesome camera guy) from KSDK Channel 5 and give them rights to these photos as well – not that they need them. They are so down to earth. Susan Sherman stated she wanted to adopt Jenna since she was such a doll and so fashionable. That’s a great compliment coming from Susan, our own Anna Wintour of Saint Louis.
Fashion designers at The Last Hotel STL were working in the window displays during Fashion Anarchy, a local designer competition that consisted of three winners from the last three preliminary competitions.
I went outside and walked across the street and it looked like the downtown I used to visit as a kid in the 60’s. Downtown was booming at the time and we would take rides periodically to see the sights. Will downtown ever comeback? I know it will and it’s already happening.
