From intimate gatherings to large runway shows, September is shaping up to be jam-packed with stylish events spotlighting local artists, businesses and venues.

Two fashion weeks are on the roster this month. Fashion Week MN (FWMN) starts Sunday. A few days later on Sept. 23, Black Fashion Week MN (BFWMN) begins.

FWMN CEO and co-founder Sarah Edwards said the events are about more than what to wear.

“At the end of the day it’s about people and connection and stories,” she said. “And fashion happens to be that final thread that brings us all together.”

Edwards added that the fall installment of the biannual event will include a strong educational component, with panel events on sustainability, technology in fashion and more.

At Black Fashion Week MN, look for events that highlight local movers and style shakers as well as other members of the creative community.
