the darkness

Last year, I was able to volunteer for two shows at Seattle Fashion Week. I knew once I moved to Minneapolis, I wanted to get involved with the local fashion scene again! I'll be working for some up and coming designers' runway shows later next week.

As a girl who loves neutrals (and, to be honest, lack of color much of the time) the all-black dress code couldn't make me happier. I love playing with texture while staying comfortable, and within my color-comfort zone.

I know from experience that too much jewelry gets in the way when you're dressing models, setting up chairs, aaaand yes, stocking juice bottles from sponsors...one statement piece is the perfect accent to the basic look. Although the bag isn't part of the uniform when volunteering for fashion week, I fell in love with this black Botkier satchel and its simple gold hardware.

Another favorite of mine is coated jeans. I love the extra layer they add to a look without sacrificing comfort. The sheen is just too good!

Can't wait to get started. If you're local, check out the schedule of events here!
