Revolving around youthfulness, the beauty industry often lacks representation for older generations.

To flip the narrative, event planner Sarah Edwards is hosting “I AM FABULOUS!” at the Varsity Theater on Sunday. The purpose of the event is to break the boundaries in fashion and show that beauty thrives at any age.

“I have been involved in the fashion industry for a while now, and I want it to be more open and inviting. It can be a cruel industry,” Edwards said.

Lucie Biros prides herself on being unique.

She works with corsetry, leatherworking and outerwear —sensibility has never been a force behind her work.

“I either do things that are really practical or not practical at all. There’s no middle ground,” Biros said.

The Minneapolis native graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in apparel design and a minor in retail merchandising in 2013.

    The flowers are budding and so should your style. Spring is just around the corner, and the new season is a reason to boost your fashionability.

    “Sun’s out, guns out” is not an excuse for bro tanks and chubbies. You’re better than that. The following wardrobe staples toe the line between trendy and classic, and while they’re fashionable now, they’ll still look good five to 10 years down the road.
