Two University of Minnesota students will exhibit their collections at the Circle of Design fashion show on Friday at the Westin Galleria in Edina, Minn.
The students are joining three other designers for the event, which features pieces that are inspired by locations around the world.
“The Circle of Design is about giving new designers a place to be seen. … That is what completes our journey from historical inspiration to new fashion revelation,” the show’s creator and producer Shelly Gensmer said.

Originally a pottery teacher, Teiken taught herself design and has been in fashion for a decade. Her business, Joynoelle Boutique and Atelier, is built mainly on her custom bridal gowns.
