Local designer George Moskal picked up by Arafina

Over the weekend, local designer George Moskal announced that local boutique Arafina bought half of his S/S 2011 runway collection, and placed orders for additional pieces. This is quite the coup for Moskal and local designers in general - previously, the Galleria store has only sold national lines like Alice & Olivia, Helmut Lang, Milly, Nanette Lepore, M Missoni, Robert Rodriguez, and Tory Burch. It says a lot about the increasing profile, craftsmanship and quality of Twin Cities designers. Let's hope more local designers follow suit.
