The Fashion Affair: A Hot Runway Show In The Heartland

The Fashion Affair returns to Grand Forks on August 25 and the heavy hitters from the eastern North Dakota fashion and beauty scene will be there. It’s part runway show and part social gathering.

It’s a full evening of entertainment, featuring live music, a fashion show showcasing 220 different looks (yep, you read that right!) from local boutiques, food and drinks from some of my favorite Grand Forks eateries and even a champagne toast!

This month on Prairie Style File, you could win a pair of tickets to The Fashion Affair so you can check it out for yourself.

  1. I’m currently obsessed with OLIVE GREEN so a lot of the fall items I’ve been buying are this wonderful color!

  2. I enjoy shopping at Kittsona and CURIOUS Clothing. RH Standard has some great pieces too! Sounds like a fun event and I would love to attend. 🙂
