"The hardest thing about being yourself, the hardest thing about that, right, isn't actually being yourself. It's getting past what society says you should be." -Riché Effinger
With the world changing and needing change, we need to look within ourselves to find authenticity. To find out who we are as individuals and celebrate that individuality, not condemn it. Fashion is about finding that unique style and feeling good about yourself. Fashion Week MN celebrates our individual authenticity.
We could not be more honored and more proud of this film. It showcases not only the Twin Cities fashion scene, but also our cities authentic nature and love for true originality. Keep on keepin' on Minnesota, we're proud to call you home.
A huge 'thank you' to all who came out for Fashion Week MN; who helped make it such a large success. Special thank you to Sarah Edwards + Jahna Péloquin. Be sure to check out all the amazing people + businesses involved. Please share + tag friends!
