Cliche celebrates five years in fashion


Five years ago, Minneapolis fashion was a lost puppy -- but thanks to a little boutique that could, local style standards have been raised. Cliche is owned by hip husband and wife Josh and Delayna Sundberg, and their store is packed with gorgeous ways to decorate your body. Last night the boutique celebrated their anniversary with the "5ive Years of Love" runway show, featuring a long list of local designers, each with five designs that made the lady-dominated crowd drool. The evening was full of summer dresses, perfect for a naughty night on the town to a sweet Sunday brunch and every adventure in between.
