The 2015 303 Awards is coming up on Wednesday, April 29 at City Hall in Denver. The nominees include fashion, food, art and more. The voting ends on March 1, so the Fashion desk wanted to get you acquainted with the categories that involve everything fashion. And first up is the Best Men’s Boutique category.
While boutique shopping has always been a bit more geared toward the female consumer, Denver has its fair share of top notch men’s boutiques that are bringing local and fashionable clothing to the aptly named, Menver. Five Denver boutiques have been nominated for this year’s 303 Awards and it’s up to you to vote for your favorite.
Check out the nominees, then VOTE HERE.
