lost in wonderland

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending a fashion event in St. Paul featuring local clothing designer Gina Marie. The event was Alice-in-Wonderland themed as a Mad Hatters Tea Party, and I have to say it was one of my favorite fashion events I've been to.


Everything down to the treats was perfectly designed. We had a lovely time shopping, eating, and chatting before the show began.


Following the show, I snapped a quick shot of Gina, whose collection included eight dreamy looks full of classic lace patterns and flowy sheers. I loved the nymph-like hair and makeup that was featured on several of the models.


It's always so sweet to see models excited to be walking in a show. I was happy to see a smile on this enthusiastic gal!


Gina was one of the featured designers at an event I covered a few weeks ago at Minneapolis-St. Paul Fashion Week, Avoid the Grey. I'm so glad I was able to make it to this event, and can't wait to follow this talented designer as her career continues.
