The Shows Sept. 27th 2012
Featuring Emma Berg & Samantha Rei
After going to the Atrium at the Grain Belt Bottling Company for three days, you’d think it would get repetitive and boring, but oh no! MNFashion continually brought in a generous sized crowd, but tonight was even more packed, and fellow fashion lovers were dressed to the nines. People watching alone would have made this night spectacular, which we did on our little breaks in-between collections. We each took turns giving stories to the elite and fashionable members of the audience, from their prestigious day jobs to glamorous night lives and how they might be connected with the designers.
Samantha Rei was first to hit the runway. Her collection consisted of pastel colored baby doll dresses in yellow, mint, violet, and classic white. There were ruffles and lace galore that made everything feel very youthful and innocent. It made you reminisce about dressing your favorite doll as girl. None of the models wore heels and had ribbons tied around their ankles; this small detail really helped create a dreamy carefree vibe. One thing we love about Rei’s designs is that they seem to be channeling the early 19th century era, but their hair was futuristic and big, with bright colors. Feather headbands and clips will definitely will be making their second debut this spring and summer, put to use in a more tame and classic way.
