In addition to using sustainable materials, The Hause Collective is dedicated to ethical manufacturing practices, taking a thoughtful and intentional approach to every aspect of its business, from sourcing materials to collaborations. “I wish people knew that sustainable fashion isn’t a trend, it’s a mission and purpose,” said Lawrence from Been Thrifty Apparel. “Chelsea and I have a nonprofit called Eco Village where we focus on giving fashion overconsumption and textile waste a purpose by upcycling alongside mentoring, workshops, pop-ups and events.” Sustainable fashion is more than just a trend; it represents a movement towards a more conscious world. The Hause Collective collaborations with Been Thrifty Apparel is at the forefront of this movement, exemplifying the values of sustainability and responsible fashion.

Denver’s role in shaping the future of the fashion industry has been acknowledged by Denver Fashion Week, which has emphasized the importance of sustainable fashion. Carter Cupp, who collaborates with The Hause Collective, draws heavy inspiration from music. “The way that music makes me feel is how I want to make other people feel with my clothing. I imagine lots of shapes, colors and styles when I listen to music and my goal is to turn those sounds into a physical form. That form is my piece. I also love how musicians present themselves on stage. I see that musicians wear outfits that perfectly match the energy of their music, and I love that” said Cupp. Cupp admires how musicians dress and present themselves on stage, as their outfits seamlessly match the energy of their music, which is something they strive to achieve in their work with The Hause Collective.

Denver Fashion Week showcases the art of fashion and creates an open and welcoming environment for creatives to join the conversation. “Denver Fashion Week is a model of excellence in the Colorado Community, it provides an opportunity to network with like minds, and a reminder that fashion is a language and means of communication for all. Bringing this event to a place not traditionally known for fashion, exemplifies the art, and welcomes creatives to the conversation” said Drew. This approach embodies the spirit of inclusivity and demonstrates the transformative power of fashion to unite people and inspire creativity.
