RetroRama

Here are photos from Retrorama, the fashion show I participated in last week at the MN History Center.  We were to create one look inspired by a decade in the 20th Century.  My look was inspired by the 1940’s, leisure and luxury, and a series of fashion sketches from my Aunt Doris of the same era.

I did a cropped jacket with suggested shoulders and triangular seaming.  The fabric is a linen metallic and is fully reversible to a matching plaid in cotton madras.  A geometric navy button completes the look.

The cotton madras short suit features a pleated cross-over halter top and dramatically draped short.  I think I did the era justice, not to mention my Aunt Doris.

Here is my look as styled by Jahna Peloquin, lead stylist for Voltage: Fashion Amplified and fashion editor of L’etoile magazine, to name a few.

Due to sickness and not being able to do a fitting before the show, I had to switch models last minute.  Tearra from Ignite Models Inc., saved the day and I couldn’t imagine anyone else in this look.  She truly evoked the era and looked amazing.

Walking out with Tearra.

A few photo ops with Tearra after the show.
