FALL 2017 FASHION WEEK Announcement
Who doesn't love a good fashion week? Fall 2017 Fashion Week MN is coming up in September and the events were released this past week. The event runs from September 7th to the 15th and features parties, runway shows, and shopping events to suit everyones fancy. An overview of some of the events we are particularly interested in:
Minnstafashion: OFFICIAL FASHION WEEK KICKOFF PARTY
Like the spring, it is going to be held at the W at the Foshay Tower. This event features pieces from 5 new and upcoming designers on models that rotate on pedestals. It is the perfect way to interact with these new pieces in an intimate yet still fun setting. This party also features small boutiques for shopping (favorite).
FGI: FALL INTO LUXURY
This fashion show features luxury looks from local boutiques set alongside Maseratis and Bentleys. This year is the third such show to take place, with styling by Richard Anderson, artistic direction of hair and makeup by Susanne Huber and producers Duane Stinson and Milana Tolins.
THE GRAY MATTER SERIES: POP-UP GALLERY AND RETAIL EXPERIENCE
This event is a collaboration between creative souls and Ruby3 by Anna Lee. A brunch preview event will be held at the Hewing Hotel on the 9th, and the experience will be available over the weekend.
FLYOVER FASHION FEST X FASHION WEEK MN
This event will feature discussions between local designers/ bloggers / influencers in a day filled with topics such as organic dressing and body image. It is sure to be the ultimate event in the connection between fashion and the way that it shapes our daily lives.
HAZEL & ROSE PRESENTS: RETURN TO FORM
Hazel & Rose are hosting and event and trunk show to celebrate makers and women as well as combating the rise in fast fashion. The Hazel & Rose event was popular during Spring fashion week and the retailers emphasis on ethical creation and sustainability are a refreshing addition to the Minnesota fashion scene.
BY NICHE PRESENTS NORTHERN VOGUE
Minnesota has been rebranded as the North instead of the Midwest and with that rebranding, we need a fashion show to celebrate Nothern Vogue. Look no further than the aptly named "Northern Vogue" fashion show held at the Foshay. This runway show will feature full collections from local designers and makers. Not to mention a portion of the proceeds will benefit Dress for Success Twin Cities.
“WE ARE GOLDEN”: HAT MAKE GALLERY RECEPTION
Celina Kane, a local designer-milliner, is taking orders for her A/W 2017 collection "We Are Golden" as well as preselling her upcoming SS2018 collection. Sophie the Blog loves hats so naturally, this is not a party that we could miss.
AN EVENING AT THE WINSOME STUDIO
The way that clothing is produced has an incredible impact on fashion and the ecosystem in which we live. This event is dedicated to discussing sustainable practices for clothing production and the impact it has on our every day lives. It is an important discussion as we move forward with fashion that we consider the incredible toll it can take on the environment when sustainable practices are not met.
MPLS.ST.PAUL MAGAZINE FASHIONOPOLIS
An evening of local fashion hosted by Minneapolis Saint Paul Magazine at Aria, this is certainly going to be one of the best dressed parties during fashion week. As the information for the show says, dress to impress and come ready for a night filled with incredible looks during the runway show.
This is not an exhaustive list (though it might seem that way) of all of the events that are going to take place during Fashion Week MN. Take a look at their website here for even more events and information on where events are taking place and how to get tickets for them. We look forward to seeing you there!
