“IN” is Buying Local

Haute Market is proud to support talented designers. Two such designers we love are Sophie & Gwendalynn, and Squasht by Les. Both have been seen in Kansas City fashion events, and have had their fabulous products featured on TV.

This dress, by Sophie & Gwendalynn is a throw-back to the era of simplicity and structure. Think Jackie-O. A beautiful creation for a summer party or lunch with the girls.

S&G also designed the fabulous corset I wore to the West 18th Street Fashion Show. It is amazing what the proper fit can do for your figure! Show it off girls!! (both the corsets and dress are $175)

Squasht by Les, owned by Lesley Timpe, has been on the St. Louis fashion scene for quite some time and recently moved to Chicago to be closer to her team of sewers. She’s making the trip to KC to show the local ladies some of her great creations, like this cute vintage-pocket Martini Lunch Dress in blue floral print. With adjustable shoulder straps it helps ensure a great fit and compliments many body types. $132 at Squasht by Les’s online store.
Support local designers and grab their goods while you can because both of these featured designers are going places! With such fabulous patterns and craftsmanship, it won’t be long until they are nation-wide!
See them both at Haute Market tomorrow. Last chance for online ticket purchases is today. Tomorrow they are $15 at the door.
