Last week was fashion week and for those of you who missed it this is not the blog for you. I was unfortunately only able to make it to three different shows. Naturally I started out with Envision and had a great time with several of my girlfriends and we even brought my younger brother along for the ride. The highlights of that show were Rachel Roff’s DeLange Designs and Khamphian Vang’s collection. Rachel’s collection looked great on the runway! It had so much personality. Personally I liked Vang’s spring collection more but this was a great fall style.
The one installment of ‘The Shows’ that I went to was Thursday night, Samantha Rei and Emma Berg at the Grain Belt Bottling House. I preferred Berg’s fall collection to the collection I saw this spring but I was amazed by the point of view shown by Ms.Rei, very youthful with a warm twist.
One of our favorite models, Nicole Marshall, was in the show rocking this beautifully simple dress.
Magico Mexico was a night to remember! The vibe was so much more lively than the other two shows I attended. The Latino community of Minneapolis was out in droves to support this amazing cause. The designers showcased were no doubt talented but what I was really impressed with was how fantastic everyone attending the show looked. I saw so many bright colors, fedoras, minidresses, bowler hats, sequin dresses, and 7 inch heels. The ladies over at Utku Fashion really turned out a great event, full of culture and liveliness. Check out their facebook page and support them in any way you can!
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to me it to Full Fashion Panic but I did check out the photos of Deborah Block’s pieces. Check the Citypages coverage of the event.
That is all for fashion week but big things are happening at Sol Inspirations. This article in the Pioneer Press came out this week, so if you haven’t read it yet now is the time. Also we are adding to our family left and right so pay attention because the next blog we post tomorrow will be from our new blogger in training Ms. Maren Herby.
