Just in case you haven't seen my Midwest Fashion Week Day 1 Recap (here), this past week I had the opportunity to attend the Midwest Fashion Week Fall 2014 runway shows at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. I attended the Thursday and Friday night shows and today I will be sharing my experience and favorite looks from Friday night. The hosts of the night were Barry Lantz of Lantz Design and Consulting and Jade Newton of Ms. Indiana US 2014! The designers showcased on Friday night included Bahar&Reza and Gunnar Deatherage from Project Runway.
The Friday night runway show started with the amazing designers Bahar & Reza, a husband and wife inspired by the ancient art and poetry of Persia. Their goal is to bring textures and pattern of the old Persia to modern design. I certainly fell in love with all the patterns and my favorite designs were the three dresses above.
Zhi Zhu presented an edgy and modern collection for both men and women. His designs featured fun patterns and leather details.
Another one of my favorite designers of the night was Poppy Seeds. Danisha Brown, the designer, is from Indianapolis and her goal is to help women feel beautiful. She presented a beautiful collection that included pops of color, beautiful patterns and vintage inspired swimwear.
Semoner Designs showcased a collection that incorporated both casual dresses and beautiful formal gowns. The collection incorporates a lot of gold and peplum details as well as African inspired prints.

Gunnar Deatherage, a contestant of seasons 9 and 10 of Project Runway, surprised us with a unique collection that included metallic prints and sequin details.
The Friday night runway show was a lot of fun for me and I'm so glad I got to experience Midwest Fashion Week for two days. The designers, models, photographers and fellow bloggers that I met were all amazing and I can't wait to attend the next season of Midwest Fashion Week!
