Emerging designer Wesley Martin
Martin was one of the standout designers at the University of Minnesota Senior Fashion Show. Inspired by post-World War II fashions, her line combines Japanese minimalism, feminine silhouettes, luxe fabrics and a punch of color. (Martin hand-dyed taffeta and silk to achieve specific colors.) Though she hopes to begin selling her line at a locally owned boutique soon, you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in any of her pieces.
Rewind's biannual Get Pretty Sale is the perfect opportunity to stock up, with the store's entire stock marked down 25 percent for two days. The shop holds the title of Best Vintage Store from Mpls./St.Paul magazine, and it's no surprise -- its tightly packed mix of vintage women's merchandise dates from the '40s to today, including lingerie, dresses, jackets, skirts, blouses, jewelry, gloves, handbags, suitcases, sunglasses and more.
