September is the perfect time of the year to begin the age-old ritual of schlepping through your cold-weather wardrobe, picking off the mothballs and parting ways with outdated items to make room for new additions. Before you end up kicking yourself for throwing out that 80's motorcycle jacket you've held onto but never worn, hit up MN Fashion Week events and make sure you're not tossing out goods that may be coming back into style this fall.

MN Fall Fashion Week (Sept. 21-27 with kick-off shows starting this weekend) will be jam-packed with more than 25 events with unique tastes, styles and themes - all dedicated to the local fashion design community. To help you weed through the options, consider attending these wardrobe-inspiring events:

COUTURE NOIR

Location: Varsity Theater
Price: $10 general; Tickets available at the door and at here.  
Atmosphere: A dark forray into local fashion

The Deets: Mackenzie LaBine is one of Minneapolis' most noted hair stylists and one of its most experimental designers. Her last big production was in 2006 with October's Electro Couture Culture at First Avenue and was an explosion of structured, futuristic clothing with a daring gothic edge. This year's show goes darker into the abyss, and we can't wait to see what LaBine has been working on.
