Vogue Contributing Editor, Candy Pratts Price, once said, “September is the January in fashion.” In this trendy world, the ninth month of the year represents new beginnings, fresh starts and the revelation of beautiful collections. With major events like New York Fashion Week happening this month and publications like Vogue printing its Met Gala 2018 special issue, September is officially a fashion lover’s favorite month. Even if you’re not heading to the Big Apple for the main event, there are several ways to get your style fix here in the Mile High City.
