Davidson's appreciation of KC doesn't stop her from drawing inspiration from the Big Apple. She began her line in 2009, and she says her latest collection is an ode to New York City's hard streetwear but made with a soft touch. The pieces include a man's motorcycle jacket with unexpected quilted fabric, and a woman's gown that pairs pleated silver material with a train. She'll also present accessories — think crocheted scarves and hats along with necklaces and rings.

Davidson's Fashion Week clothing collection is edgier than her signature look, which centers on European-inspired, wearable items that attract the modern and sophisticated working woman. She says her English heritage and studying in Paris and London have had the heaviest influences on her work, resulting in what she calls a sexy, classy statement.

But her U.S. travels also play into her creations, as does the scene close to home. "I love Kansas City fashion because it's more eclectic than big cities on the coasts," she says. "You get to see it all here, and that's really fun for me."
