Local fashion darling Laura Fulk just posted this sneak peek of a silk blouse and knitwear from her Spring 2010 line, to be shown April 19 at Walker Art Center during MNfashion Week.
Last week saw the premiere episode of "Shear Genius" Season 3, and local hairstylist Faatemah Ampey survived the first round. The boys at Project Rungay took her down a notch for her "smack-talking" and claimed to not be "that impressed" but said the look "really worked" (apart from the braided nipple), especially the braid across the forehead. Choice quotes: When asked if the group was going to let Jon win the competition, Faatemah said, "No. It's going to be a huge bloodbath. Somebody's going home in a body bag and it's not going to be me." And: "I don’t live in New York, I don’t live in LA, but I’m never out of my league. I’m not afraid of any of the people in this competition. I’m here for Faatemah. They can call me when I’m famous." Watch the full episode at Hulu and read Faatemah's recap at Modern Salon.
