August is the Sunday of summer and it’s definitely bittersweet. On one hand, we are excited for fall but then the thought of summer ending makes us sad. With Mercury in retrograde until September, you have to find the small victories. We have rounded up some events full of fashion and fun that will make you forget about what’s going on in the universe.

The Lowdown: We have to train up the little ones to embrace their creativity and that’s exactly why Fashion Denver founded their fashion camp.

The experience is designed for tiny fashion aficionados from age four to 11. Best of all, the campers will strut down the runway in their own designs made from recycled materials.
