Fashion events today and Thursday at Balliets
A Wilt clothing pop-up shop and Loeffler Randall shoe trunk show are planned Wednesday and Thursday at Balliets at Classen Curve.
Wilt is known for its beautifully shaped, uncomplicated T-shirts.
It was in 2009 that Roxanne Heptner, trained in pattern making and draping, founded Wilt. She wanted to give women a soft, lived-in alternative to what was available. Every garment is draped on the body to get fit and fold. Finishing and color processes give each a special look.
Jessie Randall, creative director for Loeffler Randall, said she has always loved shoes and once signed up for dance class just to get a pair of ballet slippers.
She said what makes the brand special is its attention to detail, from the feel of the material to the height of a heel.
In 2005, she created the brand by cutting up her wedding invitation and assembling her middle and last names on the inside of a shoe.
Her husband, Brian, is responsible for business development and finance. He is the company’s chief executive officer.
