I did a fashion photo shoot last weekend for two of my favorite co-workers, Bonnie and Becca, who just so happen to be the brains behind 2709 Designs. Their debut clothing line, set to launch during MNFashion Week as the opening act at Voltage: Fashion Amplified, is geared (pun intended) towards the hip, happening, eco-minded bicycle chicks of the world – because, really, who says you can’t bike to work, school, dinner and still look fab-u-lous!
Last Saturday Bonnie, Becca, three of their super awesome models from the upcoming runway show, and I ventured down to Hidden Beach in Minneapolis, with arm loads of clothing, props and a tent to boot. (models tend to be a bit modest when half naked in a public park) It was cold and a bit windy, but the girls worked it and I didn’t have to bring a wind machine!! By far the best models and designers I’ve ever worked with… :)
If you have a some free time on Friday night, say 9pm ish, stop by 1st Ave and check out Voltage! It’s going to be amazing, but then again, would you expect anything less from Minnesota?
Thanks 2709 for the opportunity to shoot your new line!!! ps… I love it!
