Faithful readers of this blog may have noticed a distinct lack in content over the past couple of months. I've been keeping busy with my all-consuming duties as editor-in-chief of l'étoile magazine, a longtime staple of the arts and fashion communities in the Twin Cities. Initially founded as a print publication by Beth Hammarlund in 2005, the magazine went to a blog format under the directorship of Kate Iverson, where it blossomed into a cultivator of young arts patrons and weekend planner for the art-minded among us. I joined the publication in fall of 2008 as Fashion Editor, where I founded the weekly shopping blog, assigned fashion coverage and styled editorial fashion shoots. With our recent relaunch as an online publication, I was named Kate's successor, and the publication has relaunched with a slew of new contributors and new content daily ranging from music, film, food and wine, underground culture, theater, and the literary scene, in addition to style and art.
This blog was never intended to be a long-term, commercially viable enterprise - simply a place to give a home to some of my musings on the local fashion and modeling scene. Now, you can see this same kind of local style content via l'étoile's Style section, as well as weekly in Vita.mn.
You can see my styling work in next week's RetroRama on May 24 at the Minnesota History Center, and at the Vita.mn Poolside Fashion Show on June 7 at the Calhoun Beach Club. Here is video from last year's Poolside show:
