Despite the occasional snowstorm, spring is technically here in Minnesota. That means we can start coveting spring threads, even if we can’t wear them on chillier days. Ushering in a new season is Fashion Week MN, a 10-day celebration that includes glam parties, pop-up shops, runway shows, and other happenings. Things kick off on Thursday with #MinnstaFashion at the Foshay from 7 to 10 p.m. The interactive, social-media-themed event will feature a fashion show by couture resale boutique Luxury Garage Sale and local emerging designers. Folks can shop and sip at Minneapolis Craft Market, with plenty of locally made goods and beer on tap. It’s at Modist Brewing on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. I AM Fabulous will honor the beauty and fashion of Minnesotans of all ages at Hewing Hotel on Sunday. Cliché will once again take it to the street for Cliché Crosswalk from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. As models walk around the block, revelers can shop inside the south Minneapolis boutique. Other happenings this week include Joynoelle at Aria, Black Magik Woman III, Envision, and Fashion Revolution, a festival within a festival examining the fashion industry’s record on fair labor and sustainability, and how you can shop ethically.
