I, for one, cannot wait to see the out-of-this-world headdresses dreamed up by Kansas City Art Institute junior Maegan Stracy at the West 18th Street Fashion Show this Saturday.

Stracy, an Overland Park native, is 19 years old -- the youngest designer to have her work featured on the runway at this year's show.

"I still kinda don't believe it," Stracy says of her inclusion in the

event.

So what should we expect? "When people consider the Decadent Summer theme,

they automatically think of long, satin dresses," Stracy says. "I

decided to go with bold patterns and bright colors." Stracy's hand-dyed,

sheer silk organza fabric used in her ethereal tops, paired over teensy

shorts, lends her designs an urban-pixie vibe.

As for her own

favorite duds, Stracy says, "I like to wear a lot of jumpsuits and

rompers." It's nice to only have one thing to put on, right? "Except

when you have to go to the bathroom," she adds.
