Personalities were just as much on display as the clothes during designer Emma Berg’s I Am Everything fashion show at the Ritz Theater in northeast Minneapolis. The event, a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of the Twin Cities, featured 10 high school girls wearing custom prom dresses — made just for them by Berg. The models walked the runway in true “Top Model” fashion, earning plenty of whistles from an audience of more than 200 family members, friends and local fashion supporters.
