Many designers work their entire careers for the kind of success Wayzata native Alex Davis has found in just three fashion seasons as the founder and creative director of luxury boot and accessories brand Cobra Society. The globetrotting Davis was inspired by North African kilim fabrics. A boot devotee–credit her Minnesota roots–Davis sewed one-of-a-kind rugs to the shafts of boots, and Cobra Society was born. The brand has already been recognized by fashion magazines internationally and is popular among celebs including Jessica Alba (who actually paid full price for a pair!), Beyonce, Olivia Wilde, and Alexis Bledel.
This spring, Davis added new shoe styles for women and men, as well as handbags. Shop the collection today, May 1, at a Cobra Society trunk show at the Wayzata Country Club, and get 45 percent off. Davis will also offer the hometown crowd the first look at her fall 2012 line, with a chance to pre-order. 5 to 9 p.m. today, Wayzata Country Club, 200 W. Wayzata Blvd., Wayzata.
