Named from a song by Sting about the late and great Quentin Crisp An Englishman In Westport is a blog dedicated to fashion and beauty either available or created in Kansas City and the surrounding areas. It’s long been said that the midwest (Chicago aside) is a black hole for fashion. I do not believe this to be the case and so this blog will showcase what is available in KC – from established stores, boutiques and individual designers and, hopefully, bring some recognition to the fly over states.
