After a brief hiatus, the music and fashion show Voltage will return to First Avenue’s Mainroom on Saturday, June 8. The unique event pairs Minnesota bands with boutique shops and provides a runway to showcase the latest offerings from 16 different area fashion and accessory designers, all of which were announced today.

“It’s these kinds of collaborations and mutual inspiration that make the Twin Cities such a great place to be an artist of any kind,” says MN Fashion’s executive director Amy Overman. MNFashion is presenting the event along with media sponsors the Current and Vita.mn.
