We had 20 designers show their collections in our shows this Spring, so we saw a big range of styles, from swimwear to wedding gowns.  These are some of my favorite moments from the runway.  The designers are listed in order at the bottom of the post.  Follow @provofashionweek on instagram for more pictures, and for links to the designers.

Spring Fashion Week 2015 – Behind the Scenes for Natalie Wynn

Behind the scenes shots are always my favorites.  I love them because there is so much natural energy in candid shots of models, and I enjoy the little details that all come together backstage.  Watching a show is even more enjoyable when you know what goes on backstage, because you know how much work goes into all of the little details.  My hair and makeup artists were fantastic!  Shanna Blair did my models’ hair, and Devan Ampuero did their makeup- check out their instagrams to see more pictures and before and afters. Speaking of little details- Whitney Perdue made the gorgeous model name tags/thank you cards on my dresses, Cassidy of Flour and Flourish made the perfect and delicious macarons, and Jason Bartholomew made a stunning bouquet with matching flowers for my models hair.

This time around I was the luckiest, and I had the best interns helping me get everything together/ keep it together.  Jessica Taylor and Olivia Tolman, I couldn’t have done it without you!  Thanks for all of your hard work and for keeping everything so fun!

Provo Fashion Week Kickoff Party

Our Spring Fashion Week this year was so wonderful, I can’t wait any longer to share all about it!  We kicked off the week with the most fabulous party.  Designers, bloggers, press, models, and some of Utah’s most fashionable came together for a mini runway show preview with a look from each of our PFW designers’ collections.  There was dancing, the most amazing menu of hors d’oeuvres and house made gelato from Culinary Crafts, some of the most fabulous shoes I’ve seen in my entire life, flash tattoos, and of course gorgeous dresses!

Our team did such a wonderful job putting this together, especially Katie Brown who worked magic taking the lead on this project.  My incredibly talented friend Kelsie Jones not only did the beautiful flower arrangements for the party, she also made our Runway backdrop and modeled in my segment of the fashion show- I can’t get over how talented she is!  Our very own Kylie Harrison did all of the graphic design for invites, posters and everything else and nailed it as usual.  I’m so glad we had the gorgeous and talented Megan Sanders Smith there to capture the details with her camera! Stay tuned for more beautiful pictures from Megan and details from behind the scenes at Utah’s Fashion Week!

An evening gown for the opera

I was so lucky to get to know this stunning lady while making this custom evening gown for her fancy night out.  I love that I get to work with such classy girls all of the time, and I was even able to get Sarah to model her new dress in this photo shoot for Provo Fashion Week, along with her handsome husband in his Beckett & Robb tux.  Follow her on instagram to see more from her, she is also a designer!

Speaking of classy ladies, Rachel Laukat took the photos and she was so fun and delightful to work with.  The gorgeous flowers are from Foxglove, and makeup by Cherisa, our official Provo Fashion Week makeup artist, she’s amazing!
