Seen and scene: Cliche kicks off Fashion Week MN

itemprop

Friday night marked the start of Fashion Week MN, a nine-day celebration of locally designed fashion. Things got started with a party at Cliche, the fab Wedge neighborhood boutique known for carrying up-and-coming designers. We took a moment to chat with some of the evening's revelers.

Describe your style in 10 words or less:

A teenager who layers tailored, vintage, and modern silhouettes.

Where do you find fashion inspiration?

I'm inspired by vintage editorials — I'm loving the '60s and '70s right now — and print-out pictures that catch my eye. Later, I create mood boards with outfits, models, films, and artwork. Fashion inspiration is easy for me to seek out during New York, Paris, Milan, and other fashion weeks where I rely heavily on coverage from runway collections and corresponding street-style photography to keep my style relevant each season.

What’s one thing in your wardrobe you can’t live without?

Turtlenecks.
