For our seventh annual runway show, Fashionopolis, we took cues from the globe’s fashion capitals—New York City, Paris, Milan, London—and teamed up with 30 local retailers and designers to bring distinct and on-trend looks to life on the runway. A taste of what attendees saw last night was also showcased in “Fashioning The City,” an editorial feature in this month’s edition of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine.
On the runways were looks inspired by the catwalks, street-style stars and distinguished designers from some of the world’s chicest cities—all with a Twin Cities spin.
This year’s show featured more models than ever before, with 100 different looks showcasing pieces and trends selected by our creative team from fabulous local resources. We hope the show (or this recap) inspires you to search your own wardrobe archive for those back-en-vogue pieces (hello neon, sequins, military, and animal prints!), then hit the local boutiques and retailers for fresh additions to outfit you this season.
