ROOT + LUSH LOUNGE

Members of Root’s Artistic Team, Peityn and Emily, slayed the hair and makeup for designICON’s 2nd Annual Runway Contest at Lush Bar + Lounge.

Conceived by Quinn Villagomez aka “Shimmer”, Twin Cities’ famed LGBTQ media darling, designICON is inspired from all platforms of Music, Film, Television, Cartoons, Social Justice, Personal Life, etc . and comes to life through Fashion on the Runway. Designers created one look of Fashion from an ICON of their choice and showcased it on the ICON Runway in front of a live audience.
Each look was judged by a panel of Twin Cities luminaries, including Root’s Resident Artist, Jules Annen, who gave critiques, feedback, encouragement and ultimately selected the new designICON 2 WINNER.
