FEATURE FRIDAY: MNFW
Last week was the semi-annual Minnesota Fashion Week and it was awesome. Unfortunately, due to a case of appendicitis we weren't able to make it as many events as we would have liked, but we did manage to catch the Hat Make Modern Millinery by Celina Kane Gallery Reception and Fashionopolis.
Modern Millinery by Celina Kane
Celina Kane's Hat Make Fashion Millinery Gallery Reception
If there's one thing we love (more than brunches and cheese plates) its a lovely hat. And Celina Kane totally delivered. As wonderful as these hats look, it's another thing completely once you have the chance to touch them and try them on. They are beautifully crafted and we ended up being huge fans of the unique shaped tops (especially the square). They were flattering, fun, and with so much variety, it would be impossible to not find one that was a perfect fit. Having the event at the awesome A-Mill Artist Lofts Gallery was just the cherry on top of a wonderful evening.
Mpls.St.Paul Magazine hosted the Fashionopolis Fall Fashion Event at Aria--an industrial/warehouse setting that perfectly lent itself to the bold designs that were featured there that evening. The show was broken up into three different sections: Global Bazaar, Stopping Traffic, and Fast Lane. With over twenty participating retailers and designers, there was a fantastic variety to the pieces. After these were complete, there was an awesome performance by Bebe Zahara Benet, the season one winner of RuPaul's Drag Race as dancers performed and models made their way down the runway in a special finale showcasing The T-Shirt: Reimagined.
Before the show...
GLOBAL BAZAAR: Pattern. Embellishment. Vibrant color.
STOPPING TRAFFIC: Remixed suits. 70's plaid. Western details. Retro.
FAST LANE: Shine. Nudes. Metal details. Minimalist.
THE T-SHIRT: REIMAGINED
Aria was the perfect setting. From the chandeliers, to the bars, to the several photo booths available, it was a wonderful place to drink, mingle, and enjoy stunning fashion.
A night of fashion, performance, and cakes. Who could ask for more?
Here's one last photo from the evening: I give you our best model looks. We are totally working it.
