UPDATE: VIP tickets are sold out but you can still get general admission tickets at Eventbrite.

On November 15th 2014, from 630-10pm Sisu will host the Brave + Beautiful Runway show as part of its one (1) year celebration. Sisu is an amazing boutique in Woodbury MN that aims to create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. An atmosphere where women can relax and feel at home as they shop for a specific occasion  or just because. So during the event laugh, be comfortable, have a good time… and when you post about it use their hashtags: #shopwithsisu #sisustyle.

Not only is it a great experience going through their website and learning about Sisu, it gets better as you read the details for the Brave + Beautiful Runway Show. As mentioned in the Facebook event; “Proceeds from event + raffle ticket sales will benefit Tubman a local non-profit that helps women, children and families struggling with relationship violence, substance abuse and mental health. (For more information on Tubman and their services, please visit www.tubman.org. )”. I am extremely excited to be a part of this event celebrating Sisu and supporting Tubman.

Dandies Project Press

The Dandies Project is creating positive buzz.  Check out some of the media coverage below.

“The Dandies Project” is a hardback, full-color photo book of Twin Cities men of color who, according to the project’s visionary exemplify class, style and sophistication. Complete with the gentlemen’s bios, the book tells a story with pictures and words.”

Added Moody, “If we can get young men to understand it’s about application. You don’t need to have a lot of money to have style, but you have to have a style to present yourself with to get in the door.”

The Dandies Project Coming April 5, 2014

The Dandies Project is a photo project designed to highlight the positive impact that many men of color have brought to their own community not only doing it with a sense of purpose but a sense of style!!
The Dandies Project in its physical form will be a yearly coffee table book that will highlight various dandies style and backgrounds.
Our mission is simple, “giving new life to the story of the “man of color.”

The goal of this yearly book would be to bring more
positive light to the role of men of color in society and to also bring light to local and national charities who are making positive strides in bringing positive impact to the community.

Overall there are roughly 17 dandies to be featured in this years book that will take place at Handsome Cycles on Saturday April 5th from 7pm – 10pm which will include prints from the photo exhibit and copies of the book for patrons to view and pre-order.
