Minot Fashion Week for Charity

Posted: Updated:

It's 'fashion forward' for local charities during Minot Fashion Week.

Over the past six years, local designers have raised $10,000 for the YWCA, Domestic Violence Crisis Center and others.

This year, Minot Fashion Week is raising money for the North Dakota Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Ten designers have put their best foot forward with fresh designs --- like this dress made entirely from paper.

This year is a little different from years past --- IKeating Furniture donated ten chairs for designers to put a unique spin on them --- they'll be included in a silent auction on Saturday.

The 'week' starts tonight with an unveiling of a new beverage at Souris River Brewery.

Friday night the fun continues at the Taube Museum with live music hosted by the Pangea House --- a former recipient of Minot Fashion Week fundraising.

(Jazmine Wolff, Minot Fashion Week Designer) "We used to do it when the city was a little bit smaller and the idea was that we couldn't do big things in Minot. It started as a reaction against that. But we just wanted to do something that involved some more people. At first it was a reaction against the idea that a small town can't do big things. Now we're getting bigger and it's just a night out for cultural fun."

Minot Fashion Week Gala is on Saturday at 6:30 at Otis and James.

Tickets are $15 at the door and the money raised will help suicide prevention efforts in the area.
