This years highly anticipated Mass Appeal Show was certainly not without a few hiccups. For starters the venue was freezing, with local fashionistas huddling together for warmth, the craft beer quickly ran dry in the VIP lounge but was luckily restocked with Blue and Blue Light, plus the usual organized/unorganized chaos that often goes along with hosting such an event. I must admit, however, seeing someone spill their beer on the runway literally seconds before the show began was something…. It did however speak to the Elmwood community of togetherness when everyone quickly jumped up and used whatever towel, scarf or accessory they had to quickly clean up the mess. None of this of course mattered, however, once the show began. With the thumping music and a visual feast for the eyes with the animations and models dazzling the runway in a shower of glitter, the cheers from the crowd showed why this is everyone’s favorite fashion event in Buffalo. What also makes this event so great, as the wife pointed out, is how you can see these clothes on the runway and literally go out the next day and buy them on Elmwood. Hiccups aside, the wife and I had a fabulous time and would like to thank Erin Habes and our friends from KC You There for allowing us to attend and cover the event. Below is my compilation of favorite looks from the show, with special props given to Elmwood Menswear newcomer Bureau who offered, in my opinion, the first proper showing of a Menswear brand at a Buffalo Runway Show.
