2023 Paper Fashion Show Winners

The annual Paper Fashion Show, presented by The ONE Club for Creativity, took place on April 13 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO. This year, designers were instructed to choose an artist, of any form or era, and design a piece inspired by their chosen individual(s). Over 40 designs were shown as designers competed for first, second and third place. Designs were made mostly of paper, with minimal accessories made from other materials. 

Portions of the proceeds went to Downtown Aurora Visual Arts (DAVA). 

Tickle Me Pink, First Place Winner

The first place winner was Tickle Me Pink by designers Brielle Killip and Christopher Geissinger, with help from team Blue Linen Creative, who drew inspiration from Yayoi Kusama and Jean Louis. The second place winner was Pétale d’Amour by designer Caley Kenney and team, Berséy. They drew inspiration from the one and only, Claude Monet. Last, but certainly not least, third place was awarded to “It’s Yonic, Look it Up” by designers Tia and Gianna Tarka, assisted by Team Tarka who drew inspiration from Georgia O’Keefe.
