This past Thursday we had the wonderful opportunity to show in the seasonal 96.3Fashion Now show at the Fineline Music Café produced by IAmMoody Productions and sponsored by Michelob Golden Light. ArielSimone has been showing with the station since its runway show inception back in 2009 and the shows have just been getting better with each passing season. We love showing at the Fineline because of its cozy atmosphere, great stage lighting, and upstairs section, which was the VIP area with free food and Golden Lights!
Once again, we got to work with the amazing Christopher Straub, and for the first time Design Collective showed some looks! We got the chance to really connect with one of the Design Collective designers Marissa Bridges. Also showing in that segment were a few other designers from the local boutique. Keiona Cook also showed looks. Although she is a newcomer to the Minnesota fashion show scene, she has been designing for private clients for quite some time now. Second Debut had a section of furs and dresses, which was kinda fun. Jungle Red Salon was on the hair that evening.
Last and certainly not least, we have to mention that ArielSimone and Golden Life looks were fashioned with jewels and gems from our girl Jennifer Scheffler, the designer of Realia by Jen. We met through IAmMoody at an event last year and have been collaborating ever since. This is the second fashion show that we have done together and her jewels go perfectly with our customer (you’ll notice them a lot in our photos)! Basically, we love Jen and her bling SO MUCH it makes us want to cry– no joke! How awesome is it that she got to waltz down the runway with these two pieces of eye candy by her side?!
The show started without a hitch, thanks to the timely and professional IAmMoody Production team– which only added to the already great reputation of the show. Because of the radio station’s obvious connections in the industry they always have popular artists come perform live at the show, this season we got to see Brunette, who strutted around the stage barely clothed! They sounded great, but looked like video vixens, not the next top musical group.
For our segment we showed half of a collection (6 looks) for the current Fall/Winter season. Our trends for the season include long skirts, nude colors, and sheers. We created a lot of separates for this collection–which is different for us, but separates are selling great right now, so we gotta give the people what they want!
