We’re excited to announce our partnership with the United Way WINGS through their annual show Flight of Fashion, which is an awesome event happening on April 4, 2013 in Minneapolis.
Why are we so excited? Well, for starters, we’ve been working with the WINGs team over at the lab to create a custom, limited-edition color for their event.
The WINGs team designed a sheer, pale petal-pink with the slightest of blue undertones, a perfect shade for the popular nude spring looks. They named their lipstick “Take Flight” after their motto: ”Helping the community and your career take flight.” The proceeds of the sale of the lipstick go to WINGs to do just that: Help women and their communities succeed.
If you want to score a stick of this limited edition charity color, you’ll have to act pretty quickly–this is is a really small batch! It’ll be available exclusively at Flight of Fashion (or via preorder here.) Of course, you can guarantee that you’ll score one if you get a VIP ticket–WINGs will be giving a complimentary lipstick in each VIP swag bag.
Luckily for lipstick lovers, attending this fashion event is a blast. Not only does the show support a great cause for women, it’s also impeccably styled with real clothes and jewelry that you can buy and wear.
Produced by veteran stylist Grant Whittaker and emceed by fashion editor Allison Kaplan, the show will feature a ‘…salute to 1930′s Chanel couture’ with pieces from area designers and boutiques.
DJ Loveless from Blackheart Burlesque will provide the soundtrack while Vision models strut the runway in pieces ranging from muted prints to floral. Nautical looks, luxury French grain fabrics and bold jewelry are all available for you to view on the runway so that you can decide what you want to purchase for your own look this season.
Some looks you’ll see on the runway this year were selected from Twin Cities tastemakers Joynoelle, June, Emma Berg, Grethen House, Karma, Bombshell and more.
If that’s not enough, you’ll also be treated to hors d’oevres and drinks from Loring Pasta Bar, and some serious prizes.
The Elixery will be bringing in a team of artists from FACES, etc–the same awesome group that did your makeup at the Dessa launch. The artists will be applying the evening’s limited custom shade to patrons, and lead artist Kaci will help coordinate a “look” that pairs and gets you glowing this spring.
What a perfect way to shake off winter!
