Tonight, I went to The  Lab Theater to see the Suffocate runway show by local designer Laura Fulk. I really enjoyed the fact that this show was focused on the fashions. Many of the fashion events in Minneapolis are accompanied by a lavish party or some sort of band/dj entertainment before hand. It was refreshing to … Continue reading

Just in via press release: Louis Vuitton will be donating 15% of its online sales in the U.S. on Earth Day to the Climate Project. Louis Vuitton has been working with the Climate Project since 2007. Lets be honest, you much rather buy a new handbag than pick up trash? Am I right?
