New Hannah Digitals!

Hannah did a fantastic job at her shows this spring!  Once during a conversation about shows and castings we overheard her quip, "I never get nervous". Really? "No. Never."

She looks sweet, but she means business!  When she showed up at the office in this cute spring dress, we just had to snap some new digitals.  A little, blonde, dollface for spring/summer!

Counter Couture / George Moskal

The first installment of the MNfashion shows for Spring 2011 featured beautiful collections from Counter Couture and George Moskal.  Moskal's elegant silhouettes with a fresh spring palette followed Counter Couture's classic, feminine, and (surprising) upcycled looks.  The show ended on a high note with Gemma in Moskal's soft orange finale dress.

It was a beautiful event, and we truly look forward to seeing upcoming work from these two talented designers!

Here's a serious look backstage at Envision Artopia SS11...
