Part of Delmar in the Loop will become a runway Sunday for the event.

The Delmar Loop will showcase street fashion during Saint Louis Fashion Week at this year’s Style In The Loop, Sunday, Sept. 29. The event runs from 1-6 p.m.

Now in its third year, Style In The Loop has been newly adopted into the Saint Louis Fashion Week lineup, and is expanding to include a high-energy outdoor fashion show on Delmar Boulevard at 4 p.m.  

“We created Style in the Loop to help bring focus to and encourage the patronage of Loop boutique,” said festival director Deborah Fink in a press release. 

Style In The Loop’s runway show will feature a fresh roster of design talent, including 10 local designers, each of whom represents a different aesthetic of the thriving Saint Louis fashion scene. Project Runway alumnus AJ Thouvenot will headline the runway show. 

Other designers include Devil City, ULCINI, Scarlett Designs, Conjetta, Mekhat!, WHITNEY MANNEY, Michael Shead, Sansone Designs, and I AM SLY.
