DENVER, COLORADO – This spring, Denver can officially say it has its own fashion week. Formerly known as Denver Fashion Weekend, 303 Magazine is happy to announce that it is launching Denver Fashion Week (DFW) on March 18-25. In addition, DFW is proud to say it is now partnering with Denver Arts & Venues, Visit Denver, Denver Art Museum and The Paper Fashion Show in an effort to grow the event.
“We recognize Denver Fashion Week as a well-primed step in supporting our fast-growing fashion industry in Denver and Colorado. The diversity of Fashion Week programming and dialog exchange will help to amplify Denver’s reputation for design on a national scale, while continuing to attract the attention of new audiences and growing the fashion industry through career-development,” said Lisa Gedgaudas, Denver Arts & Venues
With this announcement comes a huge new lineup of events, happening all week long. On March 18, our children’s fashion show returns that afternoon alongside a bridal runway show and the 303 Awards in the evening. Then, Monday through Wednesday, Denver Fashion Week will host industry workshops for models, boutiques and designers, as well as trunk shows, sales events and more. For these workshops, we will host local industry leaders, acclaimed designers from New York City and expert panels. The Denver Art Museum will also host an exclusive media discussion with fashion illustrator, Jim Howard. The media event will take place on March 21 from 5 – 6:30 p.m. as a part of Fashion Week and his exhibit at the museum: Drawn to Glamour: Fashion Illustrations. Denver Art Museum will directly share the media event invite, so keep an eye on your inbox. For all other events, go here to see the full schedule.
As always, we will showcase the best in local fashion as well as international designs. Below you’ll see our full lineup. This year, we are proud to announce Stevie Boi — an NYC designer known for his work with Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Madonna and others. He will present a brand new, exclusive line on Thursday, March 22 of Denver Fashion Week. Our non-traditional night featuring models of all shapes, sizes, ages and orientations will also return on Thursday, March 22.
