Joy Teiken is a local fashion designer who seems to be having some success in New York and with the fashion magazines. Her label is Joynoelle. Her studio and showroom are at 2115 Como Ave. SE in Minneapolis and she is open from 10 to 3 on Saturdays, website www.joynoelle.com
I have no affiliation, but read an article about her in Women's Press last summer and was very impressed that she made it, leaving her day job and doing her design work full time. Someday, maybe that will be me!
