Project Runway is coming to town.

This weekend, Mall of America will host its third annual Curated Style: Straight from the Runway fashion show, featuring designers from the hit reality TV series.

The fashion show will be held on Friday, Oct. 6 in the mall's Rotunda.

Models will walk the runway wearing new collections from seven Project Runway designers, including Minnesota native Christopher Straub, who competed on the show in Season 6.

The other fan-favorite designers include Christopher Palu, Viktor Luna, Fabio Costa, Korto Momolu, Mah-Jing Wong, and Mondo Guerra.

Another local, World of Dance runner-up Eva Igo, will also perform during the show.

The event is free, but you'll need a wristband to snag a seat by the runway. Wristbands are first-come, first-serve and will be distributed beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Trunk show

If you like what you see on the models, there will also be an opportunity to purchase designer and vintage clothing.

A special trunk show/pop up boutique with designers from the show and local vintage shops will be held on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Project Runway designers Christopher Palu, Christopher Straub, Fabio Costa, and Mondo Guerra will have clothing for sale.

Local shops on site include Encore Boutique, June, My Sisters’ Closet, and Turquoise Vintage.

It's happening from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Sky Bridge at Radisson Blu Hotel (which connects to MOA).
