Another Denver Fashion Weekend has come and gone and with it came another incredible season of local fashion. This fall, the fashion didn’t just stay on the runway. For three full nights, attendees came decked out in everything from sky-high heels to plunging necklines and plenty of vibrant colors. We snapped photos of our favorites and asked attendees to describe their looks so we can get an idea of what inspired them. Read on to see what they had to say, and make sure to take notes for the next DFW!

Katy looked enchanting in her Unicorn dress. “I love colors and I love rainbows and unicorns so I wanted to do something a little bit different,” she said.
Karysma wore this baby blue jumpsuit. She explained that “it’s my favorite color and it reminds me of like ’90s Britney Spears.”
“I get a lot of inspiration from Old Hollywood and the ’70s disco era, lots of glamour so I kind of threw it all together … This is actually a robe so you can wear it over lingerie or over a dress [to make it] as scandalous as you want or as formal at you want,” said Jane.
Jennifer and Hannah looked great in their matching lace dresses. “My favorite part is the length of course, and then the body outfit underneath it,” explained Hannah. “I sell Jeneration Apparel and this is one of my new dresses that we are going to be featuring next week,” said Jennifer
Jenny and Stacia matched in their monotone looks. “She’s my stylist,” said Stacia.
“I actually run a boutique down in Castle Rock [called Back in Love] and we’re part boutique, part consignment … Stacia is showing one of our pieces of boutique jewelry,” explained Jenny.
“I love the pants, ” said Irene.
“I’ve just been into wardrobing myself since I was 18 and I’ve just always been very inspired by fashion,” said Camaron.

“I work for a modeling agency and have always heard good things about DFW so I thought I’d give it a look!” said Jesselin Emerson
You can’t go wrong with purple. The fur makes a statement especially against an all black silhouette,” said Monique
“I am wearing a leather jacket by The Kooples with a Buck Mason Shirt and Nathan famous Jeans and boots by suit supply. I choose this edgy look because I’m a scumbag who has a job so I like to keep it a bit grimy but professional at the same time,” said Jon Hartman.
“Capes are so in so I matched it up with my Louis Vuitton bag. I wanted to really make a statement so what better way? I also went with the Jeffery Campbell shoes for some height,” said Courtney
“I like drag from the ankle down. I like clean good masculine attire but a good pump makes the look… Denver fashion is getting ahead of its game and it’s come so far. As a native, and for 30 years, it’s been a lot of nothing so it’s inspiring to see DFW bring out all kinds of people with a great twist on fashion,” said Bryan Sillery
“The power suit is perfect because it’s fierce but also shows my hippie spirit. I got a great deal on it at Buffalo Exchange!” said Meg O’Neill
