Minnesota Fashion

Local fashion event "Voltage" fuses together local fashion and music into a highly anticipated showcase this weekend.
This year is the seventh installment of the show "Voltage" and is a prime event in the Twin Cities as it serves to get new talent into the public reported the Minnesota Daily.
Voltage is also geared towards bringing in a wide range of audience members. Local bands like Pink Mink, Me and My Arrow, Phantom Tails, Communist Daughter and Fort Wilson Riot should bring in an audience that may not know much about fashion according to the Minnesota Daily.
Voltage and the rest of the events apart of MNfashion week are a way to the Twin Cities on the map in the fashion world. Marshal Cohen, chief retail analyst for the NPD Group, a New York-based consumer research company, explained that in order for the Twin Cities to become a well-known for fashion the work the cities produces needs to be different than the rest of the known fashion hotspots reported the Pioneer Press.
According to the Pioneer Press when MNfashion began in 2004 Voltage was the only event and today there are more than a dozen runway events, trunk shows and open houses. The week has also expanded to occur in the spring and the fall just like fashion weeks in Los Angeles and New York.
A person who believes that Minnesota is on its way to get on the map for fashion is "Project Runway" season 6 finalist Christopher Straub of Shakopee. Straub has chosen to stay in Minnesota because of the presence of a fashion industry and people need to be aware of it according to the Pioneer Press.
