FARGO – North Dakota Sen. Kent Conrad is in Haiti today with other Democratic members of Congress to assess recovery efforts in the Caribbean nation that was struck by a devastating earthquake more than 14 months ago.

Christelle Dominique joins these powerhouses at Atlanta International Fashion Week in mid-July with her MeJeanne Couture line of clothes. She’ll arrive a relative unknown, but the Fargo designer hopes a turn on the catwalk launches her career.
Christelle Dominique has a passion for fashion. The Minnesota State University Moorhead junior is pursuing a degree in marketing but also takes apparel and textiles classes at North Dakota State University. “Fashion was my first choice, but I had to have
a backup plan just in case,” Dominique said. Dominique made a name for herself in her home country of Haiti and the U.S. by starting her own clothing line, MeJeanne Couture. Dominique still sends sketches to her mom in Haiti, who consults with seamstresses who sew the pieces for her. She showed her work at the Plains Art Museum’s Spring Gala on Saturday. She will also present her collection at the Atlanta International Fashion Week in July.
