As MN Fashion Week marches on, fashionistas valiantly continue to party. The Clothes Off Our Backs celebration appears to have strength in its all-around offerings. For those unfamiliar with the store, which has recently moved to new digs, Blacklist Vintage sells retro threads for men and women —as well as home decor —ranging from the '20 to the '80s. The store itself is colorful, and it even has an old-school arcade version of Ms. Pacman for patrons to play for free. Tonight's party will feature a rapid-fire fashion show with models on four different pedestals, each changing out every five minutes. All the vintage and revamped clothing items that you see can be purchased at that moment with no wait. Do you suspect your dimensions are slightly different than those of the model wearing the item? Not a problem: Sew Simple will be on hand to make instant alterations during the party. The crowd will also enjoy treats from Salty Tart and DJ music from Double Trouble.
