There was truly no better way to celebrate kicking off Fashion Week Minnesota than with #MINNSTAFASHION. Sponsored by W Minneapolis and The Scout Guide, #MINNSTAFASHION took place in The Living Room, the first-floor bar and lounge at the W Minneapolis – The Foshay. This was the sixth semi-annual installment during Fashion Week MN, and this spring’s event proved it’s not slowing down anytime soon.
All evening the Living Room was bustling with some of Minnesota’s most fashionable people. FWMN co-founders Sarah Edwards and Jahna Peloquin stunned, obviously, and guests donned their best get ups at the photo-op wall. #MINNSTAFASHION attendees were encouraged to use the hashtag of the event name when posting their shots on social media. The bar was packed as guests got libations before they walked around to socialize, AKA, see and be seen.
Outside of the Living Room, models stood on revolving platforms, allowing for guests to get a true 360-degree view of the designs without having to move. A live DJ played techno-esque music that matched the chic vibe of the evening.
#MINNSTAFASHION featured designers including Drazenka Designs, Spencer Versteeg, Hannah Johnson, Cassidy Glynn, and Coup De Fourdre. Pop-up shops include Luxury Garage Sale, Queen Anna, Karen Morris Millinery, Strey Designs, Aprilierre Jewelry, Aura Boutique, Baubles & Bobbies, and J.W. Hulme Co. Sponsors include Jim Beam. Hair and makeup by Denny Kemp Salon and fashion styling by Style by Selena.
