Christopher Straub announces maurices collaboration

Last night, Christopher Straub officially announced that his forthcoming partnership with Duluth-based national chain maurices will launch later this month.

For now, you can check out the namesake collection from the Project Runway season six darling in a Spring/Summer 2012 runway show this Sunday. Judging by previews, the collection will debut some of Straub's own custom designed prints and feature a tougher edge than we've seen from the designer in the past. Here's a preview of his "Shattered Leather Dress":

Front row VIP ticket holders will receive a custom bag/tote designed by Straub ($100), and first and second row VIP ($50) are invited to a pre-show reception (includes apps and one drink ticket); general admission is $25, available in advance here. Enter to win a limited edition Christopher Straub Petal Purse ($350 value) with purchase of a $10 raffle ticket. Proceeds will benefit the Child Neurology Foundation. (Doors open at 3:15 p.m. for VIP ticket holders and 3:45 p.m. for general admission, 4 p.m. fashion show, Sunday, November 13. The Westin Edina Galleria, 3201 Galleria, Edina, 952-567-5000, www.christopherstraub.com)
