Here are some of the Twin Cities’ style and shopping highlights over the next two weeks:

Filigree Grand Opening Party

Filigree Jewelers has moved out of MartinPatrick3 and into a larger space in the North Loop. Come for an evening of some of North Loop’s favorite local food and drink plus a chance to check out Filigree’s jewelry, whether it’s the vintage and antique it’s most known for or the growing collection of modern fine jewelry. Sept. 27 from 5-8 p.m. @ Whitney Square Lofts, 210 N Second St., Minneapolis, filigreejewelers.com

Rose and Loon Grand Opening

The Minnesota makers you can find at Rose and Loon might make you think “hip Minneapolis boutiques” and not “suburban outlet mall,” but that just makes this store even better. It’s got Bloom Handmade‘s hand-sewn, classic children’s play wear; Realia by Jen‘s natural stone bracelets; Ritaboo Shop‘s hand-woven jewelry; and of course, Minnesota Made and its casual, comfortable apparel. This store has more than 30 makers for fashion, home goods, art, beauty, and food, and on top of everything else, it will be offering classes and Make & Take activities. Ribbon cutting Sept. 28 at 10 a.m. @ Upper Level Von Maur Court, Rosedale Center, 1595 Highway 36 W, Roseville, roseandloon.com

LPF Streetwear Week

Right on the heels of Fashion Week MN, the Twin Cities gets hit with another fashion storm, albeit a newer one with a distinctive look. Mimi Nguyen, senior fashion designer of her brand House of Nguyen, founded LPF Productions this past February. After a few fashion shows—it was part of Fashion Week MN in its spring 2018 installment—it’s going to tackle a full weekend. Kick off LPF Streetwear Week at the Lotus with a night of music performers, go to the vendors pop up, and of course, end the festivities with the LPF Streetwear Week Fashion show, which includes Icarvs Apparel and Melevated, who is giving a sneak peek of its 2019 collection. Oct. 5-7 @ various locations, facebook.com
