"It was awesome to meet Tim Gunn," says Twin Cities' designer Tim Navarro, who will appear on season 13 of Project Runway. "I think he is a lovely human being. You can tell he is emotionally invested in everybody that's there. He's just genuine. I love him."

Navarro describes Project Runway host and judge Heidi Klum and judge Zac Posen as "gorgeous," and says that while there isn't much interaction with the judging panel -- who also include Marie Claire's creative director Nina Garcia and a weekly celebrity guest -- that it was "outstanding" to be in the same room as them.

With Tatters, Buffalo Exchange, and a few other clothing stores in the area, the Lyn-Lake neighborhood is already a decent place to shop for threads that won't break your wallet.

"We opened about four years ago in Fargo, and we grew a really big following from there," says Ashlie O'Day, who owns and curates the two shops along with her sister, Teresa. "I've been living here since 2007. So once we saw a spot open up, we jumped on it, and decided it would be the perfect time to open up something here in the Twin Cities."

Those familiar with the Uptown area know that on any given day the it's filled with a mix of yuppies, older hippies, hipsters, visiting suburbanites, and residential joggers. It's basically a mall, so it attracts a lot of different types.

When the New York Times decided to visit the Twin Cities for Intersection, a video series examining the fashion of different neighborhoods around the world, they decided to set up shop on Hennepin and Lagoon, right by the Uptown Theatre and John Fluevog, and interview folks on their sartorial choices.

Of course, they only talked to 20-something hipsters.
