On Saturday and Sunday, 303 Magazine‘s Denver Fashion Weekend rocked City Hall Amphitheater with local fashion and avante-garde hair, not to mention amazing spinning by DJ Lindsay Luv. So far we’ve heard rave reviews, but I wanted to show you a few of my favorite moments from each night. If you weren’t able to attend last weekend, here’s a look at what you missed.
NIGHT ONE: Local Designers and Boutiques
On night one of DFW, local designers were first up. Mona Lucero Design Boutique, Kittie Mae, Andrea Li jewelry, Live Worldly, Kotomi Yoshida and Equillibrium Clothing all took the stage and impressed with their fall collections. Up next were the boutiques: Garbarini, Blush and A Tsagas Furs presented. Donna Baldwin male models also had a segment, which ended the night on a very hot note. Even though there wasn’t a consistency within each designer and boutique, I think there was something for everyone. But I did have a few favorites.

NIGHT TWO: Hair Show
Before when I heard of a “hair show,” I assumed it was an event that only hair stylists go to. Boring hairstyles, horrible outfits, everyone judging you on your own hairstyle – but after this hair show on Sunday night, I will never think that again. Participating salons included: Halo, Juno Salon, El Salon, Swank Salon, Vida Salon, Antoine Du Chez, Mode Salon, Blow Dry Lounge, The Look, Evolution Salon, J Audrey Hair Studio, Rita B Salon, Teds Hair Studio and G3 Salon. Award-winning hair stylist Charlie Price not only produced and amazing two-day event, he styled for Halo Salon, which just so happened to be one of the best segments Sunday night. Each salon did an amazing job, but take a look at some of my favorites.
The fall round of Denver Fashion Weekend was the best DFW I’ve ever been to. I want to personally thank everyone who was involved – from designers, boutiques, salons, volunteers, sponsors and our AMAZING staff and photographers. But this is just the beginning. Plans start next month for the spring Denver Fashion Weekend. Stay tuned, Denver.
