Fallene Wells debuts her Modern Nouveau 2013 collection at Fall Friperie

The fashion event of the summer came down Friday night when Fallene Wells introduced her Modern Nouveau collection at Fall Friperie, a show at Walker Fine Art. The line received a rave review from its audience, which appreciated Wells's concept of mixing and matching separates and fun patterns.

The show featured models standing on giant hatboxes and swapping clothes to create new looks -- essentially playing dress-up in front of an audience that could buy the pieces and then do the same at home.
