preview: voltage 2010

On Tuesday, members of the press and local buyers were treated to a preview of the 10 collections that will debut at the Voltage: Fashion Amplified show during MNfashion Week in April. The event took place at the Vision Management Group loft downtown and was packed with all the major players in Twin Cities fashion. The preview has me really looking forward to seeing the each designer’s collections in their entirety come April. From our sneak peak, there were some definite favorites: Raul Osorio, Frances Zerr, Danielle Everine and Emma Berg.

Osorio’s collection of menswear featured clean lines, fantastic drapery and a great military-inspired jacket paired with short trouser shorts.

I adored Zerr’s collection, featuring desirable colors and simple lines. Zerr told me she is really a minimalist at heart and hopes that shows in her collection. She is also working with natural fibers- nothing like green fashion!

Everine’s collection was feminine, flirty and very reminiscent of the S/S2010 Miu Miu collection.

Emma Berg, darling of local arts and fashion, sent a stunning pair of organza pants with a structural crop-top down the runway. Let’s hope that is a sign of what is to come for the rest of her collection!
