I came across this photo on pinterest and fell in love. What a beautiful studio space. I need a room like this that is clean and open that gets my creative juices flowing :)
A few months ago I was asked to be a designer for the W and Le Meridien's employee holiday party fashion show. It was such an honor to have been asked and I couldn't wait to start putting things together. The premise of the fashion show was to represent the re-branding of the two hotels, embodied through clothing. The Le Meridien look was more sophisticated with their colors being red, black and white while the W look was more fun and edgy, colors hot pink, hot green, gold and black. I was able to put a great team of people together and had a successful event this past weekend. See below for pictures.
I can not thank my team enough for helping put together this wonderful show. Special thanks to:

This past weekend I was involved in an annual boutique put on by Elisa Mcbride called Finch's Boutique, based out of her home in Minnetonka. It is a huge collaboration of 50 designers who all work at Target. The boutique only lasted for 2 days and brought 240 visitors and a record $7k in sales. We also were able to donate over $500 to benefit American Cancer Society. What a great success! Here is a blog post that showcases more of the event. http://finchsboutique.blogspot.com/. Here is a photo of the items that I put into the event.
On November 19th I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for my Holiday collection at the Eitel Building in Loring Park. The photo shoot was planned in only 2 days and I can't believe what a great success it was, thanks to Sarah Mraz helping me put it together. We had jewelry done by Jen Scheffler of Realia , photography by Kyle Camerer , and Makeup/Hair done by Spencer and Emily of Taj Salon and Spa See below for some fun pictures of the day.
Thank you again to everyone who made this day possible. Model Sarah Mraz, Photographer Kyle Camerer, Hair/Makeup Spencer Brownlee and Emily Betlach, Stylist Torre Kastner and Jewerly by Jen Scheffler. YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!
