next month - february 16th to be exact, graves hotel will play host to the 3rd annual red dress collection fashion show. produced by cw's carly aplin, it brings awareness to the fact that heart disease is still the #1 killer of women - advocating for women, young & old to take charge of their health. local designers are paired with local "celebs" and tasked with designing a one-of-a-kind red dress that will be showcased in a runway show that evening. sponsored by the university of minnesota physicians heart @ fairview, all proceeds from the show benefit the american heart association's go red for women program.
for this particular occasion, i won't be bothered with having to find something beautiful to wear. i'm honored to share that i've been asked to be a part of this event - though, not as a stylist. i'll be walking down the runway in a custom-made piece by the ultra talented knitwear designer, mary pranica. would love for all of you to join me for a night of local fashion, great food, pop-up shops and silent auctions - all in the name of promoting good health & awareness. added bonus? possibly getting to see me make an embarrassment of myself on the runway. tickets can be purchased here.
ps. be on the lookout for sneak peaks of mary's dress on my instagram! xo
