Five Cleveland stylists go thread-to-thread against designers from faraway places like Maryland, Illinois, and Florida. Each must create, cut, and sew four outfits -- one each in casual, business, sports, and formal categories. Glover, a former runway model who runs the local Waki Wear line, hopes to see some convention-busting clothes this year. I like deconstruction -- making something totally wild, he says. I respect that kind of viewpoint.
The wrap-up fashion show features an all-male lineup of creators and models this year. As a guy who lives and breathes fashion, Glover hopes Knockout brings together area designers. If I could wave a magic needle over the local fashion community, he says, it would stitch together all these fabrics, designers, and models to embrace the one community they represent -- the fashion world.
