This past Wednesday marked the kickoff of the MN Fashion Shows held at Twin Cities hotspot, ARIA. The fashion shows feature the latest collections of Twin Cities designers, including both veterans and emerging talent. This year's show lineup included a collection by Christopher Straub, Minneapolis native and competitor on the ultimate fashion television show; Project Runway.

The MN Fashion shows are the perfect way for U of M students to get involved with the Twin Cities fashion scene! Want to experience live fashion from the audience? The College of Design Student and Alumni Board offered students discounted tickets and transportation to go see the shows. Students are also able to get involved behind the scenes and be a MN Fashion volunteer. If you're looking for a career in fashion, or just love the thrill of watching looks walk down the runway, MN Fashion is the place to be!

Check out their website mnfashion.org for all the details on MN Fashion, and http://www.design.umn.edu/dsab/ for info about CDES Student and Alumni Board!

Stay fabulous,
