Despite a late summer heat wave, the slight chill in the air permeating the early morning call time helped set the tone for a fall fashion flirtation. We marched into the Embassy of Finland‘s modern building with its lushly wooded grounds to tackle the task at hand — telling the story of a dark, fall romance.
