The feel was New York, but the setting was Columbia -- and from the appearance of Saturday night’s Model Citizen Fashion Show in the Executive Center of the Holiday Inn Select, young women are going to have many chic options for the spring season. The event raised $150,000 for the MU Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders and was hosted by School of Journalism alumna Jann Carl of "Entertainment Tonight."
Collections hearkened to the 1960s and '80s, with black tights prevalent. A healthy mix of color along with a play on proportion and volume were also themes, not to mention Pucci-inspired patterns for flowing chiffon dresses.
Accessories were retro while modern, with patent leather acting as the key element in construction.
