Yet again, this year’s runway rock show will be held at the iconic First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. A MNfashion production now in its seventh installment, the Voltage show is the marquee event of Spring MNfashion Week each year and serves as the public debut of each designer’s spring 2011 line. A fresh twist on traditional runway, models walk to the sounds of the crème de la crème of local bands—who serve as models themselves. More than simply a runway rock show, Voltage: Fashion Amplified also serves as a design incubator by helping designers make a business of their art. Hands-on Design Workshops, meetings with the Voltage Design Panel and appointments with wholesale fabric reps help designers develop, source and create their spring lines. Each year brings evolution to MNfashion Week and debuting this year are The Shows— classic, design-focused runway shows featuring Voltage veteran designers.
