Fashion Designers in Windows at The Last Hotel STL [video]

Designers work in display windows of The Last Hotel : Barbara Bultman, Magan Blanchard, Courtney Tharpe, Taylor Cassidy, Amanda Casarez, Madison Fay

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.


Barbara Bultman wins Fashion Anarchy at The Last Hotel

VIDEO: Barbara Bultman, a well known fashion designer, won the Fashion Anarchy Final at The Last Hotel STL in the Historic Garment District neighborhood in Downtown St. Louis. Barbara will now take residency at the Saint Louis Fashion Fund for one year. The ensemble she created was a wearable work of art created within 24 hours. Right after winning, she turned to her student designer and said (a paraphrase at best) I couldn’t have done it without your help. That was one of the nicest things ever!

I like to create pieces that are structural, sophisticated and detail oriented, while still showing the silhouettes of the female body

Fashion Anarchy is a fashion competition by It’s very similar to Project Runway where designers get limited time to create their clothes.
