Minneapolis-St. Paul Fashion Week is a little over a month away, and the final schedules are being solidified. For those in the know, the top fashion showcase of the week-long festival is usually the Shows, a two-day runway party featuring exciting and established Twin Cities designers.

The lineup for the event was announced this morning, and features a handful of names that local fashionistas with certainly recognize, including Project Runway alum Christopher Straub; Samantha Rei, whose delightfully gothic frocks have been seen at RetroRama, at last year's the Shows, and through Blasphemina's Closet; and talented brothers Tim and Thom Navarro, whose work was part in this year's Red Dress Collection (as was Straub's).

See the complete list (and a few really cool promo images) below.
