Drama featured in MN Fashion Week’s ENVISION: ARTOPIA Runway Fashion Show


Ignite Models Inc, V2 Nightlife, Futuretime Productions and City Pages, are pleased to present ENVISION: Artopia Fall 2011, a whimsical evening where Live Art, Fashion and Music will blossom into the can’t-miss-event for the Fall fashion season. The event will be held on Friday, September 16th from 9pm-12am in the 5th floor Ballroom of the Graves 601 Hotel.

Please join us for Envision Artopia Fall 2011, the Twin Cities largest fashion event–an upscale evening celebrating the best in local fashion, art and music. This will be the 9th ENVISION event, which has quickly gained a reputation as the hippest seen-and-be-seen event to kick off MN Fashion Week each year during spring and fall – the most important fashion seasons. More than 1000 of the Twin Cities’ most glamorous fashionistas, glitterati, urban hipsters and all around trend setters will flock to the ballroom of the Graves 601 to see gorgeous Ignite models in fall looks from several of the Twin Cities best designers and boutiques during two high-energy runway shows including: Amanda Christine, Arwyn Birch, Caroline Hayden, Cliché, Drama, Gina Marie Vintage, Karma Boutique, Kathryn V., Kelly Ver Duin, Local Motion, OPM Boutique, and yqy by vivian. The fashion show will be styled by Secrets Fashion Agency, with Rocco Altobelli Salon and Day Spa providing hair and make-up on the models.

VIP guests will enjoy a sampling of spirits and hors d’oeuvres from local Twin Cities restaurants from 8:00 – 9:00 pm. At 9:00 pm doors will open for general admission. The runway show will be in two parts – the first at 10:00 pm and the second at 11:00 p.m. Throughout the entire evening there will also be a silent auction and various live art elements taking place for guests to enjoy, including an art exhibition and a collaborative live painting in the gallery by local artists including: Brandon Regner, Allan Salmi and Robert Wayne.

A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction will benefit The Young Survival Coalition, the only international, non-profit network of breast cancer survivors and supporters dedicated to the concerns and issues that are unique to young women and breast cancer. http://www.youngsurvival.org/
