Looks like www.metromix.com is prepping to launch a St. Louis site.

For those of you not in the know, metromix covers all things entertainment. As the site says, “Your one-stop local entertainment guide on where to go and what to do, from the hottest restaurants and bars, to the latest in music, movies, and entertainment.”

St. Louis joins the ranks of Los Angeles, Chicago, Baltimore and just added … Lehigh Valley, Penn. KSDK is leading the way for metromix, which leaves me rejoicing because the TV station’s Web site isn’t easy to navigate, and the Post-Dispatch’s Web site’s entertainment section is a bit lacking. 

At the same time, the St. Louis metromix staff has big shoes to fill in competing for advertising dollars with the local array of entertainment news sources such as the RFT, the glossy mags and Sauce, to name a few. Time will tell how this site makes its way into the media mix.

On December 14th LA designer Rochelle Rodriguez will be in town showcasing her clothing line. Instead of having the trunk show at a venue or boutique she has decided to throw more of a girl house party on the Southside!

Rochelle Rodriguez Clothing was created in the fall of 2005. The designer, Rochelle, had a personal desire to create what she could not find in the market place. That being, comfortable, wearable clothing that did not apologize for female curves, yet highlighted them. Clothing that was chic and flirtatious without being a trendy, and items that would stay in a woman’s closet for years to come.

2007 has been a whirlwind year for spotlighting fashion in St. Louis and coming up on October 6th, STL will be treated to one of the shows that started it all… St. Louis Magazine’s FEVER Fall Fashion Show. This year, FEVER heads out west to an aircraft hangar at Spirit of St. Louis Airport. Curious to see how they do with such a cavernous space, but judging from past St. Louis Magazine productions, I am sure it will be amazing! Also interested to see the crowd mix with the location. Will there be an influx of West Co peeps who typically only stray past Skinker for Cards games? Will the city types who rarely go past 170 unless it is to visit Aunt Mildred stay at home? Inquiring minds want to know! For me, I will make the trip. Nectar Anyone? (see below for the reference)

A recent Mayor Slay blog calls out comments in the media from a local vintage clothing salesgirl who chose not to participate in this city first’s Fashion Week. I had refrained from writing about this until reading the mayor’s mention. The AP article the mayor cites reads:

Madeline Meyerowitz, co-owner of enokiworld.com, a St. Louis-based Web site that sells high-end vintage clothing, said she didn’t want to be in St. Louis Fashion Week.

“I think people do this stuff to make themselves feel like they live in a place that’s hip and happening,” she said.

Many people will pull out their style equivalent of their Easter best to attend the fashion events and then go back to wearing Old Navy khakis, she speculated.

Funny thing is Meyerowitz is also an admitted Old Navy shopper, per a July St. Louis Magazine article.

I don’t see the need for a local to shun St. Louis fashion-forward efforts. While I adore quite a few things at www.enokiworld.com and www.enokiland.com, I admit to adoring a few things each season at Old Navy.

While we’re no LA or NYC, it is clear St. Louis fashion efforts are moving forward on all fronts – from local designers and boutique openings and offerings to media and Web 2.0 coverage.

I don’t just feel like I live in a place that is hip and happening, I do live in a place that is hip and happening. I am fortunate to see the passion people are putting into these efforts. And in my humble opinion, I thought our little fashion week was rather smashing.

Thank you to everyone who came down to Wash Ave for the kick off of St. Louis Fashion Week! To say the evening was high energy would be an understatement. My only regret on the evening was arriving late and missing out on Allyson Mace of Sauce Magazine fame spinning at the Philip Slein Gallery. Have to keep my eyes open on when she will be back as guest DJ at The Royale.

Don’t forget, next week… the 5 Year RCP Celebration at Mandarin! The party starts at 5:30pm on the 28th and will feature specials, apps and good company.  For more info, visit us at www.rivercityprofessionals.org.
