This Thursday, the fall installment of Fashion Week MN returns for eight days of local fashion for all. That includes events geared toward people interested in gaining insider knowledge, kids trying out new stuff, plus-size lovelies, and fashionistas of all ages and abilities. It all begins on Thursday at 7 p.m. (6 p.m. VIP) with #Minnstafashion, a free party at the Foshay featuring cocktails, pop-up shops, and emerging designers. Saturday’s happenings include a brunch exploring how secondhand and vintage threads influence modern looks, and a fashion show featuring kids sporting K-pop streetwear by Twin Cities designers. On Sunday, Queen Anna House of Fashion will lead a frank talk on the ins and outs of the industry, and the Lumber Exchange will host a body-positive dance and fashion show featuring South Asian threads with a Minnesota twist. A runway show featuring models with disabilities benefiting Best Buddies MN will be held on Monday at Rosedale Mall. Other events coming up next week include IAMMOODYS black fashion party, I AM MPLS!, and the Hmong artist showcase Fresh Traditions.
