New Year's with EC, Past + Present

New Year's is always a time of celebration and styling for EC. This year, we partied and worked's Spirit of '09 party at the Loft. We styled up some go-go dancers for and Jahna, also a writer for, did video interviews with the night's DJs (Hercules + Love Affair, Le Castle Vania) and band (Solid Gold).

Last year, we rang in the New Year at the, Mark Mallman-headlined Varsity Theater bash. We just came upon this video montage of the event by Chuck Olsen on
MNstories, a Minnesota video-sharing community, for which we styled a vintage-inspired lingerie fashion show. That's us onstage at the end having "the time of our lives."

Happy New Year from Eclecticoiffeur!
