As local fashion flourishes, so does MNFashion Week, a sprawling event that celebrates the local boutiques, stylists, and designers that make us fabulous. Taking place in both Minneapolis and St. Paul, this festival for fashionistas includes trunk shows, runway wine receptions, parties, and benefits of just about every cut and color. The event kicks off Friday, September 18 with ENVISION as well as with La Nouvelle Femme: Wanderlust over at the Varsity Theater. Nouvelle Femme will feature runway segments, photography, paintings, and live music with Bella Koshka and Hildur Victoria. For a complete schedule of times, prices, locations, and events (and there are too many cool ones to list here), check out www.mnfashionweek.com.
