I AM MPLS!
Creativity is something folks in Minneapolis have in spades, and now it's time to celebrate the homegrown talents who make our city a hotbed of individuality and art. I AM MPLS! highlights the achievements of some of the most prolific visionaries in the local scene by championing its music, fashion, comedy, diversity, and art. The event is the brainchild of ultra-chic stylist and event producer Sarah Edwards, and features a fashion show with local creatives strutting their stuff down the catwalk in apparel from Atmosfere, b. resale, Cliche, Emma Berg, LEN, MartinPatrick3, and Motto. Comedians Maggie Farris and Jen Schaal will be on hand to get the laughs going, while Hookers $ Blow and Bollywood will provide the night's music. Want to be super close to the action? Go VIP, and you'll get premium seating at the show, an eco-friendly swag bag, and free rides from Uber to and from the event. This year, some of the night's proceeds will benefit I AM Kindness, Edwards's joint project with Jared Lukes that champions random acts of kindness. Get your pre-holiday party wear ready, it's time to show off your creative side and raise a glass to Minneapolis talent. For tickets, visit iammpls2013-es2.eventbrite.com. 18+.
