“Diaspora” (the dispersion of people from their original homeland) is a unique approach to history through the fashion lens. Through the inclusion of diverse design talent, models, music, and art, the fashion show will recognize the shared past and variety within the African diaspora, as well as provide a clear vision for the future. Bought to you by the Retention Strategy, they are also proud to partner with Target to showcase pieces from their exclusive Ámbar collection in the show. The evening will be hosted by 89.9 FM KMOJ, 'The People's Station' very own Shed G and Kare11’s Adrienne Broaddus and will feature musical entertainment from Liquid Crystal Project and DJ3J. Models in the show will have their hair and makeup done for the event by The Beauty Lounge. The Minneapolis Diaspora Fashion Show F/W 15 will take place Saturday, August 16 from 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm at The Lab Theater in Minneapolis, MN.
