Our Official Spring Fashion Show Shopping Guide

Posted by Christa Szilagyi on Mar 21st 2018


A Front Row Experience from Your Living Room   

Fashion shows are full of fast paced fabulousness and we provided you, our local and online customers, a first look at the newest Spring arrivals. 

The Skirt & Satchel team took a new approach to fashion shows and filmed via Facebook Live and #BTS Instagram stories to make you feel like you were here with us. Because the Skirt & Satchel brand has travelled to Bloomington all the way from Arizona, the online fashion show made it possible for those customers far from our new location to see our clothes in a fun and innovative way.


Note on availability: Here's a look behind the scenes of our Spring 2018 Online Fashion Show, held on March 20th on a Skywalk in Bloomington, Indiana along with links to purchase these looks for yourself. If you're catching this post after the season, check our home page and facebook for current collections. This collection may sell out. 


Meet the Models

Models Rachel, Andy, and Shakeela pose next to some tropical plants at Fountain Square Mall. 

For a fashion show, the first thing you need are some models. Thankfully, we just introduced a new lineup of Skirt & Satchel models to the team and both Rachel and Shakeela were very excited to get to participate in the first of many modeling opportunities. The collection curator and Girl Boss herself, Andy McManis also walked the runway and thanks to these three ladies our viewers were given a great diversity of body shapes and sizes. Skirt & Satchel is a body positive boutique with size inclusivity and we offer sizes XS – 3X, so it is important that we showcase that.


The Runway

So we set the date for the first day of Spring, and using a skywalk runway Rachel, Shakeela, and Andy showed off three different looks from our newest collections. The first day of spring brought an unexpected snowfall that can be seen from the windows of the skywalk. This unconventional runway brought some life to the fashion show, and we're excited that you had a front row seat. If you missed the live video, check out the recording on our facebook page. 


Shopping Guide: Get the looks

Look One: Girl Boss


Model Rachel wearing modern essential tee v-neck tee in ivory and clueless skirt in size Medium, Tropic Wrap in one size fits S/M/L. 

The first outfit was deemed our Girl Boss look. Starting with a modern essential tee tucked into the houndstooth patterned pencil skirt, the Girl Boss look will demand the attention of anyone in the office. Pairing these two pieces with our tropic wrap gave the outfit a dimension that worked well for being two very distinct patterns. The Skirt & Satchel team hopes to inspire all Girl Bosses out there to be bold in their combinations.

Look Two: Tropic Vibes

Model Shakeela wearing Tropic Dress in Small and Tropic Kimono in one size fits S/M/L with Hollywood Sunglasses

The second outfit was a spaghetti strapped maxi dress sewn to flow with every motion made by your beautiful body. The second look we like to call Tropic Vibes. With green and gold tropical flora filling the black base of this dress, you will surely be in touch with your beachy side even if you do reside in the middle of the Midwest where it actually snowed on the first day of Spring. Accessorizing with some sunnies and the matching tropic wrap, all of our models swayed with such elegance down the skywalk. The Tropic Vibes look will surely have you ready for warm weather.

Look Three: Showstopper

Our third and final look was well named as the Show Stopper, because we simply could not stop the show without it. Paired once again with a modern essential tee and tropic wrap, our show stopper skirt cinches at the knees and sprays outwards in a sort of mermaid tail-like way. Working extremely well with all the curves we see on women, this skirt is sure to turn heads.

The Skirt & Satchel team enjoys being able to curate collections like this for our customers and inspire them through fashion. Unlike your traditional fashion show where the outfits on display are practically impossible to find, we have made all of our looks available for purchase online, but you must shop the collection while supplies last.
