WORDS BY Sofia Haan
The annual Hmong Nouveau Fashion Show + Concert, presented by the St. Paul-based fashion, arts, and cultural organization promises an all-out evening spotlighting Hmong artists, designers, models, and creatives at the Armory. Hmong creatives from across the country will be hitting the red carpet to share their work inspired by their cultural heritage. The show features more than 18 musical acts, with Win Vang and Huab Vwj headlining the event. The roster of 11 fashion designers features both new and returning names, including Lylena Yang of Lylena Hmong Couture, Shang and Mang Thao of Hilltribe Fusion, and Brandon Yang. More than 100 models will be wearing their latest collections. Doors open at 5:30 PM to the general public, and the fashion show kicks off at 7. After the show, a DJ set will keep the night going until 2 AM.
