This month we celebrate fall fashion worldwide! Vogue has a big fat issue and we have a few issues of our own. First up, our new collection! Inspired by 1960s and '70s loungewear, these pieces evoke the sensual luxury we desire of our clothing. Look for new pieces to be added online throughout the coming weeks.

3. FIRST THURSDAY: October 4th 5-9pm
Join us in our workshop for our first open studio in months! We have been working hard on our fall collection, and you can finally visit us and see where the magic happens during October's First Thursday. While you're at it, visit the rest of our awesome building, full of hundreds of artists.
4. ONGOING: GALLERY 360
We have a permanent rack of clothing on display at Gallery 360. They are huge supporters of our work and have been central to our growth, as artists and as a business. We change it up often there, and have plenty of one-of-a-kind pieces that never make it online. If you're in Southwest Minneapolis, be sure to stop in!
5. ONGOING: Artwork at Haus Salon
Anna Chambers-Goldberg - the woman behind the curtain at ACG - has a collection of textile-based paintings on display at Haus Salon in downtown Mpls. Go get a rad new 'do and see some artworks unlike any you've seen before.
Note about these beautiful photographs: taken by local photographer Hanna Voxland, this experimental series captures a poetic je ne sais quoi we've been chasing for some time. The full series will be online shortly, you won't be able to miss it.
