Night Two of KC Fashion Week was more relaxed for me. I was blown away by the diversity + craftsmanship of the various collections that came down the runway. I was equally as excited to see a new diverse face on the runway, Arielle Nash.
She's a beautiful girl with a fierce yet controlled strut. I had the pleasure of meeting up with her at Yogurtini on the Plaza to discuss her experience modeling for the first time and her future plans!
