Twin Cities Stylemakers Lisa Castro, Dahlia Brue, Keith Dorsett, Charlie Brackney, etc
It's in their DNA. Not merely the knack for looking great in jeans or a suite (although, do they ever!), but the way their style reflects their substance. The people you are about to meet turn heads, but it's when we got to know them, and their impact—locally, and beyond—that we really got inspired. They are designers and retailers. Stylists and marketers. They are business owners. They are people who influence how we look, what we wear, and where we shop. And they know that those dynamics impact how we feel—about ourselves, and the city we live in. They are dreamers, and their optimism makes the Twin Cities a more stylish place to be.
If you’ve purchased a suit locally in the last 20-plus years, there’s a good chance it was from Dorsett.
Your next Target run will probably include something designed by Castro.
Simplicity in dressing—and the confidence to pull it off—make up this new retailer's style philosophy.
