fashion shows

last friday i dropped off a small selection of jewelry for my friend martha who was one of the designers featured in the (first ever) fashion show at gallery 360. i wasn't able to stay for the show but was happy that i got to spend about an hour backstage with martha and the models to test out the outfits and jewelry before hand. i recognized 3 of the models from the fall flair show that i did last fall and just being there before the show got me excited about the next fashion show that i'll be a part of: VOLTAGE is dubbed the biggest fashion show of the year in Minneapolis and is held in main room at First Ave as part of minnesota fashion week. 10 runway designers will be featured along with 5 additional designers who will outfit each of the live bands that will be playing during the show. my jewelry will be paired with one of the runway designers and together we will be showcasing 10 individual looks. the people running the show have proven to be quite organized and apparently have taken a more hands-on approach when it comes to styling the show as one larger entity this year. this means that i am going to get to watch the show this time! as fun as it was being backstage at la bodega - i can't wait to see everything come to life with my own eyes!
honestly, i am so new to the fashion world, i hadn't heard of Voltage until last fall .. but needless to say, i am starting to get excited. i wanted to mention this one early because tickets are already on sale here - and from what i hear it is usually packed .. and a lot of fun! if you are planning to attend, let me know and i'll keep an eye out for you!
