Mpls Inst of Art, just keeps going

 This is going to be the post in which I cut off everyone's heads. It'll be fun. Anyhoo, the relevant part above is the graphic circle skirt with crinoline underneath so it moved very well. The fabric is the same as that used by a Project Runway contestant named Mondo. Now if you are a track person, you know that a Mondo track is that red rubber that smells pretty bad when it gets hot. I'm pretty sure it's toxic. But that has nothing to do with this skirt.

 Here are 10 of the twelve models. They're working.

She's so cute I had to leave her half-head in. She was working with Laura Fulk, local designer and legend whose designs were on show here. Laura holds a dear place in my heart because I once thought it would be a good idea to put on a fashion show for my previous employer, and Laura was extremely instrumental in the event actually happening. Which is to say, she did everything-- designed clothes, taught me about runways and music and how you have to walk like the top half of your body is catching up with your toes and look real mean/bored. Actually I guess the models learned that at modeling school. Anyway, Laura positively did everything and was apparently not permanently scarred by it. Thanks Laura! The woman above is wearing Hue tights.
