Fall Into Luxury 2018

FALL: INTO LUXURY 2018

 

On September 27, FGI-MSP held its fourth annual fashion show Fall: Into Luxury at the Van Dusen Mansion. This year, the notable guest of honor was Ms. Sue Zelickson, a long-standing FGI member, WCCO Radio Host and Journalist, a renowned food critic, philanthropist, and a founder of the local Charlie Awards.  Ms. Zelickson talked about FGI-MSP legacy and what it means to be a dedicated fashion professional.   

The evening started with Miss Minnesota 2017 Brianna Drevlow playing on the grand piano as a local artist Jendayi Berry painted live to the music. Ms. Melanie Burley was the lucky winner of the finished one-of-a-kind art piece.  

The fashion show was the first of its kind four-floor runway as the models strutted the halls and ballrooms of the historic Van Dusen Mansion in the looks from the local designer Joy Tieken of Joynoelle and the local boutiques June, DUGO, Via’s Vintage, Luxury Garage Sale, Martin Patrick 3, Heimie’s Haberdashery and an emerging designer Quinlan Milne-Rojek.  Jewelry and accessories were presented by Milana Stile, Stephanie Lake Design and Goldfine Jewelry.  The runway was stylied by Richard Anderson.  Hair and Makeup was created by Merité House of Beauty

It was an evening of a true celebration of art and fashion showcasing local creative talent on and off runway!
