Envision  Artopia Fall Fashion Show
As I shared in a earlier post, I told you gals and gents that I would be assisting with the set up of the biggest Fashion Show in Minnesota. I had the chance to be behind the scene and take a look at how huge shows like the Envision Artopia are created. We prepped for over 400 guest, it was a bit overwhelming, but I honestly enjoyed being apart of it.
The Fall Fashion that was featured on the runway were local boutiques and designers from Minnesota including Amanda Christine, Cliché, Drama, deLange Designs, Khamphian Vang, KJurek, Local Motion, Martin Patrick3, and Roe Wolfe.
Just a "few" of the gift bags.
Inside were a variety of different goodies from most of the sponsers which were 

Some of the booths I stopped by:
Blick Art Materials
They had a fun "spin the wheel" toy, every spin you had a chance to win something free, no losers at their table :)
They were very nice and had awesome Art Materials. The owners gave me a free sketch book for mentioning them in my blog!
This is Kaitlyn, an amazing chica that was also by my side during the whole thang :]
