As the Twin Cities fashion community has continued to grow and evolve since our last announcement to transition to an online-only resource, it has become clear MNfashion's role and online presence is not needed as it once was. And this is a good thing. It is a testament to the hard working designers, retailers, event producers and vendors who work to keep the local fashion market alive. It is encouraging and exciting to see how Minnesota is adapting and developing new ways to support local designers and makers. As a result, MNfashion is not needed to organize a calendar of events or produce shows to showcase talent to the public like it has in years past.
And so, MNfashion will be closing our doors as an organization. Starting today, we will cease to maintain an online fashion calendar on the organization's website and promote events on our social media accounts. There will no longer be a staff.
Thank you to all who have supported MNfashion over the years.
