Oxblood Fashion Show

Oxblood Fashion Show hosted by Royal Flooring

Oxblood Fashion Show was an amazing runway show with an impressive production. No detail went un-noticed. Hosted by Royal Flooring  and produced by Misty Blank. Ansel and Opie had the amazing opportunity to style every look and perform a live fashion shoot for the show. The best part was working with all the amazing talent, many of whom we have worked with before. Make up was done by the amazing Misty Blank, Shelby Stingley, and Tonae Monique. Hair provided Thompson & Co Salon Parlor. The illustrious models; Cecilia Adamski, Arjana Ejupi, Tamia Ayoki-Davis (keep posted for Tamia’s shoot), James Alexander, Jamie Henderkott, Meredith Torvik, and Megan Axne. Video provided by Luminary Video & Media Production. Dj and lighting by BCP Live (I’m sorry I forgot to turn off the projector at the end of the night) And a huge thank you to the all the volunteers and the Iowa State Fashion and Design Program volunteers, we could not have accomplished this without you. A huge thanks to Maxwell/Liebl for bringing all the talent to make this even happen. Special thanks to Velvet Coat, Francesca’s, Nordstrom Rack West Des Moines, Peplum and Paisley and The Boutique for providing all the apparel.

Not Your Boyfriend’s Jeans

Boyfriend fashion is huge this season and is quickly growing from runway to fast fashion.

Women often like to compete with the guys and generally do it better! So, we decided to take a cue from men’s runway this season and take a look at some boyfriend fashion. Menswear inspired dressing is a classic in the eyes of many and will be seen for years to come. Check out how we choose to be inspired by it!

Secure your tray table, fall fashion is here

Cool weather and fall fashion, does it get any better?

I have always had a passion for aviation. I have been going to air shows for as long as I can recall and I even have multiple family members and friends that are pilots. We had been discussing a location shoot using airplanes for a while, and our generous friends Andrea and Jeff, along with the Marion Airport, made that possible. We hope you love it.

Fall fashion hot items include gray suits, short skirts and tartan prints. Don’t forget to accessorize with faux furs, black boots and go heavy on the sparkly bling.

Special thanks to Andrea and Jeff for providing use of their Cessna and to the Marion Airport for letting us run around the grounds. If you want to see a cute one of a kind airport (or get a pilots license) go visit. Seriously. You can visualize decades worth of stories being told in the lounge.
