Longtime local designer favorite Laura Fulk has been named one of City Pages' 100 Creatives in their ongoing series.
Choice quotes from the Q&A:
On her career high thusfar: "My first solo show. It was one of the most physically challenging things I'd ever done. I think I went without sleep for four or five days in prep for it. My fingers were numb for a week from sewing so hard. I will never forget that feeling of accomplishment. I hope every fashion designer gets to experience that."
How the local fashion scene has evolved: "Back when I started doing fashion shows I could literally count the number of local fashion designers on my two hands. They were my idols; I wanted nothing more than to be like them. I now consider myself one of those "old school" fashion designers, and I am hopefully now inspiring generations of local fashion designers to come. Currently there are hundreds of local designers, due especially to the undying support of organizations like MNfashion. I think it is pretty much the coolest thing ever."
