MNfashion’s sponsored Minneapolis-St. Paul Fashion Week has officially begun (as you know because we’ve been hyping our events all last week). The official kick off party was last night. Remember, we talked about it twice last week– The Red Dress Collection. We have some great images from the evening, which you can check out on facebook. It was a great event for a great cause. Our model Sandy was amazing– she simply looked STUNNING and we absolutely loved the realia by jen jewels that Jen styled our look with. To say that we were pleased with how things turn out would be an understatement! We were happy to be able to support the charity and raise our glasses to celebrate fashion and philanthropy.
Even thought that is the last show in MN Fashion Week that we will be working, we are excited to support our peers and local design friends throughout the week. We will have plenty of words and photos to fill you in if you are not able to attend everything.
Speaking of attendance, we are thrilled that the MN Fashion team curated and streamlined a calendar for the week with no overlap so that MSPFW attendees won’t have to miss a single show or event.
We’ve worked hard to create a well-edited mix of events that represent fashion and style in the Twin Cities…. All of these events are a can’t-miss and, fortunately, with our new scheduling process you won’t have to.
— Nicole Dixon, Fashion Week Director.
All events fall under one of three categories: The Shows, satellite runway shows and retail events. Voted the best local designer showcase by Minnesota Monthly, The Shows are making a triumphant return on Wednesday, Feb. 21 with Emma Berg, Kimberly Jurek and Amanda Christine. Produced by MNfashion, The Shows have raised the bar for local runway shows and will continue that tradition this season.
Resurgent is on Thursday. You and Me will be producing their for their first-ever fashion runway show during this week hosted at the new Bar Amsterdam in St. Paul. Four designers have come together to create their first official line under the You And Me label, featuring: Camille Fashions, Katy Schmaty Jewelry, and Tim+Thom. By combining their creative efforts, they’ve created a line featuring Men’s and Women’s ready to wear clothing, jewelry, and accessories. Live Music by Loveless Aphrodite, Tiger Vs., and D.J. Encounter.
Another event that we are super excited about is the J.W. Hulme and Pierrepont Hicks event. Known for their genius creation NorthernGRADE Menswear Market, these fashionable producers will bring you SnowGRADE, a pop-up market for men, brought on by request. All vendors are American-made manufacturers. Local vendors include: Northern Brewers, Clancey’s Meats and Fish, Faribault Woolen Mills and more. It’s super hot and a great place to scope out cute duds for your man. And just a great event to scope out cute guys too 🙂
