There is a saying in Russian that your tongue can take you to China (Язык до Китая доведет). Last Friday my tongue, my emails and tweets to be more specific got me to ENVISION MPLS.
It’s a Fashion/Art event that happens every year during the Minnesota Fashion Week, and focuses on celebrating local art, fashion and music. And it all takes places in a beautiful Graves 601 Hotel.
The Runway show included local boutiques and designers, like Idle Child, Roe Wolfe, Jenny Carle, Cliche’, Marissa Bridges, Kjurek, and many more, and was divided into 2 parts. That’s why in the video you’ll see 2 final walk throughs.
I do have to say that Tambuca was absolutely amazing, and you’ll see them in many of my pictures, as they were playing on stage during the whole event. They were also lucky to see the models first, before they even entered the runway! Man, it’s good to be a musician
Love the pops of fuchsia from Tessa Louise
Perfect fall neutrals by Jenny Carle
Peplum is longer, but is still in…// Jenny Carle
Love the leather
Favorite dress and favorite model of the night!
So Barbara Streisand, isn’t she? // Kjurek
Perfect fall color
Best combination of prints, materials, and color
There can never be too much glitter
… and back!
And now for the video
I also can’t leave the art part of Envision out. This artist was creating collages during the show:
And that’s how they turned out…
You could bid on any item shown here
And finally, I recreated my outfit of the night for you, next time I’ll do better and have someone snap a picture
Kookai knit dress, Target tights, Salamander boots, Philip Lim for Target yellow crossbody, Vintage coat, Being Zhenya necklace, Marc by Marc Jacobs watch
Overall it was a great night, I got to see some of the local bloggers, meet new people, and I can’t wait for The Shows that are taking place this week!
