last night, i attended "distortion", the u of m senior fashion show. unfortunately, i showed up a little late and missed the sophomore exhibition (yikes!) but managed to catch the rest of the show. i've posted a few of my favorite looks from the show. the first two are from junior designers jennifer robertus and dziyana zhyhar. i'm looking forward to what they'll show next year. i loved the menswear designs by kelly ver duin: leather, hardware, and buckles. and the dress everyone fell in love with, including me, was designed by leslie randall. lingerie had its place in the show designed by alix nettnay - surprising, but beautifully designed. as for styling, i loved the hair and makeup for laura henslin - simple, clean, and perfect for spring. it's great to see fresh faces in the minneapolis local fashion scene. new people bring new ideas. at the end of the show, it was announced that looks showcased in the show will be sold online. i wonder how many people will be after leslie randall's dress...
