W Minneapolis — The Foshay’s Extreme Wow Suite was filled with fashionable figures at the Minnstafashion preview on Sept. 18, where guests got a sneak peek at some of the glamorous looks to come later in the week. Local designer Hannah Johnson unveiled the two designs she created for the event’s “Fall Into Winter” theme for media members to ooh and aah over as they sipped wine and mingled with other stylish savants. Johnson, along with several other local designers, will show off their looks on Thursday, Sept. 20 at the eighth Minnstafashion, the official kickoff to the fall edition of Fashion Week MN.

Presented by W Minneapolis and the Scout Guide Minneapolis, the can’t-miss event will feature live fashion presentations complete with hair, makeup, and fashion styling, along with pop-up shopping, a photo wall, prizes, and live music by DJ Lenka Paris. Last year they had about 300 people RSVP and 800 people show up, according to Matthew Galavis-Reed, the complex marketing manager at the W Minneapolis and Le Meridien Chambers. This year, 800 RSVPs have poured in already, so it’s bound to be a high energy night for fashion lovers. For more details, visit
