December 12, 2009 7PM – 9PM

Local Minneapolis artist Erin Currie creates extraordinary creatures know as Curster. Now Currie will spin her magic in the runway debut of a stunning clothing line inspired by the Curster’s aesthetic, Curster’s Dollmighty Fashion Show. The clothing is an artfully constructed layering of rich fabrics and hand embroidery, resulting in one of a kind dresses and casual wear with the perfect mixture of coquette, Victorian princess and Tank Girl. This impeccable collection will include breathtaking dresses, fanciful hats inspired by military helmets, lacy sweaters, hand crafted tees as well as hoodies and ornate mukluks. Once you are wearing one of Erin Currie’s designs you will feel armored in stylish wonder for any occasion!

Her explorations of these characters know as Cursters began with meticulously handcrafted fiber sculptures and expanded into paintings and prints. This amazing body of work was exhibited at SooVAC in Currie’s first solo exhibition in 2008. The Dollmighty Fashion Show will be set to the background of Curster sculptures, paintings and prints, creating an all encompassing journey into the world of Curster creatures.
