On an exceptionally warm autumn evening, Larimer Square brought the best seasonal style to EDGE Bar and Restaurant at The Four Seasons with its Fall Fashion Show. Models commanded attention on the stage dressed in seasonal outerwear, clothing and accessories from 15 different Larimer Square boutiques including Hailee Grace, Fluevog Shoes and Qinti. The complete looks were pulled together with makeup from AILLEA and hair styled by L Style Bar. It
Larimer Square has no shortage of attractions for both visitors and locals but the chic boutiques that line the square are at the top of an impressive list of businesses found there. The event gave attendees the ability to check out the seasonal trends and staples from some well-known boutiques and get acquainted with some brands they may not have seen on the runway before. Belong Designs is one brand starting to make the catwalk home. Ben Thomson started the lifestyle brand five years ago and now has a pop-up shop in Larimer Square. The Fall Fashion Show gave him, his co-founders and his brand some coveted exposure to a new audience. “It’s humbling and it’s super cool to be part of this. It’s not something we would picture ourselves in but it’s very cool to be here. It’s our own form of respect to watch what people do here. Although we have a long-term pop-up shop, it’s ending soon so we’re still figuring out where we’ll go next, but we love Larimer Square and would love to stay here,” said Thomson.
As the models strutted the runway in alpaca fur outerwear, seasonal outfits in shades of mustard, rust and cognac and on-trend cobalt blue statement pieces, we were comforted by the fact that cooler weather is right around the corner. It was both comforting to know the sun-soaked days are numbered and thrilling that we have a variety of boutiques in Larimer Square ready to help us update our fall wardrobes.
