In case you missed it...Preservation held it’s first ever fashion show this past December featuring Des Moines artist April Johnson aka Shu Shu Maus ( sounds like shoe shoe mouse ). Shu Shu Maus was conceived by April’s daughter Sarah Ivanovich, together they comprise the label. April took the reins on this collection to create wearable art to elevate your everyday or add a unique touch to your modern formal wear. April's appreciation for music, fine art and fashion bring vitality to all her senses, she is inspired by everything around her. This collection boasts April's attention to fine detail and hand crafted quality. The collection was paired with custom dyed vintage pieces from Preservation along with simple and classic modern pieces by LACAUSA, emphasizing the versatility of the collection.
