Denver Fashion Week (DFW) presented by Mile High Luxury Real Estate is on the horizon and we are preparing ourselves with some serious fashion inspiration from last season. The Spring ’18 season brought about a new development in Denver’s fashion scene as Denver Fashion Week(end) expanded from one weekend to a full week of incredible shows and professional workshops. The change was a huge step for Denver and its local talent, models and designers alike and it goes to show how up-and-coming the city is in all aspects.
Now that the DFW Fall ’18 season is here, we’d like to take a look back at some of our favorite looks from the spring from designers like Tyne Hall, Hogan McLaughlin, Nuorikko and Gino Velardi. Their beautiful silhouettes, ethereal fabrics, strong runway presence and color schemes made for some of the most memorable moments of the entire week.
Sunday Children’s Fashion Show
The Lowdown: The Children’s Fashion Show displayed a diverse range of looks such as all-black ensembles paired with masks, Denver hoodies with camouflage print pants and tulle dresses. The Secret Boutique used tulle to display an array of styles from girly and light to edgy and dramatic. Nature was a strong inspiration with leafy headbands on wavy hair by Peach & Penny as well as The Secret Boutique. This season promises to be just as energetic with fall colors and styles abound.
303 Awards and Bridal Fashion Show
The Lowdown: Ethereal yet powerful looks graced the stage for the Bridal Show, binding traditional elements of lace and tulle with edgy colors and prints. Bloom wowed the crowd with intriguing floral headpieces and beautiful bouquets as accessories. Femme Fatale’s looks were a wearable step-up from your average lingerie and the designers brought on a wave of wedding fever with their unique creations.
Non-traditional/Local Designers Night
The Lowdown: Local designers brought their edge on with street-ready looks with pops of mystery. Natural hair was embraced and designers played with accessories to pump up the drama. Eclectic pops of color and fun sunglass-print skirts from Pink by Stevie Boi were accompanied by dark styles brought on by Steve Sells and Tyne Hall. Designers Tyne Hall, Topping Designs, Rachel Marie Hurst and Steve Sells will be kicking off this season’s DFW, so be sure to grab a ticket for the Local Designer’s Fashion Show.
National Designers Night
The Lowdown: National designers showed up with heavenly silhouettes and bold prints. Skin-tight jumpsuits in vivid colors by Xuly Bët complemented dark, sequined gowns by Manfredonia. Velvet Wolf’s army of women in powerful yet wearable looks made a strong statement that less is more. This season, local boutique, Garbarini will bring some of your favorite national brands to the runway, including 360 Cashmere, Milly, J Brand and Zadig & Voltaire for the National Designer Night. Tickets for National Designers presented by Garbarini are available for purchase here.
Hair Show and SW Hairstyling Awards
The Lowdown: Nature-inspired looks were common for the Hair Show, with ocean and floral themes with glitz and graphic details. Local designers collaborated with some of Denver’s best hair stylists to create bold looks that were perfectly in sync. Accessories like tassel earrings, headbands and even horns were paired to add more flow to the looks. Go here for tickets to attend this season’s Hair Show.
