ENVISION: Fall 2009
MNFashion week officially kicks off Monday, but this massive, glamourous, and hip fashion and hair party should tide the beautiful people of the Twin Cities over for the weekend. Hosted at the swanky 601 Graves Hotel, the night begins with a silent auction from which all proceeds benefit the Young Survivors' Coalition. The nonprofit offers support and services for breast cancer sufferers and survivors. Next will be an interactive hair show with stylists from Rocco Altobelli giving tips and tricks on the latest trends for tresses, spraying and styling models' hair into aesthetically pleasing creations, with makeup by Mae Artistry. There will also be two runway shows featuring local designers including Amanda Christine, Arwyn Birch, and Carmichael Claith; clothing from boutiques like Cliché and Local Motion; and fashion lines such as Drama, Kjurek Couture, PFT Couture, and others. Don't worry about the ball ending or your ride turning into a pumpkin at the stroke of midnight: Just walk on down to the Lounge Nightclub (411 Second Ave. N.) where late-night glitterati can enjoy house tunes by DJs Timmay and Shiek, and a performance by electric violinist Dani-Vi (from Barcelona) until 2 a.m. For tickets call 612.435.4982 or visit www.envisionmpls.com. 18+.
