Local designers featured in Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

Local designers become models in the April issue of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. Danielle Everine, George Moskal and Jenny Carle are featured along with info on their upcoming shows during MNfashion Week (Danielle at Voltage on April 15, George in his own show on April 13, and Jenny Carle at Envision: Artopia on April 9). Also featured in the same article are Terri Martin (also in Voltage) and Elena Mercurio.

It's an inspired idea to turn the tables on designers and it's always fantastic to see local design featured in a magazine like Mpls.St.Paul, but also sort of a curious decision to only have two of the designers (Danielle Everine and Elena Mercurio) wear her own design. Of course, George only does women's clothing, but why not have Jenny Carle or Terri Martin wear one of her their own pieces? (Note, Terri is wearing a George Moskal dress.) Purportedly the story's aim is to showcase spring trends, but isn't that what the designers are doing with their spring collections?
