Black Hearts Ball – Runway

Well. It’s over and done with, and boy was it GREAT. Working with Tim & Thom Navarro and Allegra Lockstadt to produce this show was a dream come true. The Minneapolis Club was a fantastic location. Our musicians were stellar. The other designers all put forth thee most amazing pieces. We really couldn’t have asked for a better show. (Plus, we sold out) We are so happy to put on a show of this caliber, and we hope to do so again in the future.

My capsule collection is titled Pariah and it deals with the inner work of loving your differences. In fact, owning your deviances and prizing them was the inspirational phrase that I worked under. Here are some images from the show.
