Alice Riot Launch Party

  • Public Functionary 1400 12th Avenue Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55413 United States (map)

Please join us on Thursday, February 22nd to celebrate the launch of Alice Riot, a line of size-inclusive, professional women’s garments that highlight the work of female contemporary artists, co-founded by Kelly Groehler and Kate Iverson. 

Our first collection will be available for pre-order via an Indiegogo campaign launching the same day, and we’d be thrilled to have you help us celebrate at Public Functionary in NE Minneapolis!

This inaugural collection of garments showcases three original paintings by Iverson, a contemporary artist. There will be a brief panel discussion hosted by Robyne Robinson, and the full set of samples for this first collection will be available to touch, feel, try on and order! The event is free to attend.

Food and drinks will be provided, with DJ Lady Parts spinning the tunes. Please feel free to stop by at any point during the evening, either on your way home from the office or as a fun happy-hour event for you and your friends and/or co-workers!

An RSVP is not required – but it is appreciated. Those who click "Attending" will be registered to win a 100% silk scarf from Alice Riot’s first collection! Must be present to win.
