Colorado Fashion Week ended 3 days ago, but I am still having a great time reliving the experience as my video technician and I cut videos to share with you! On day 4 of Colorado Fashion Week, Gino Velardi Designs by Denver Designer Gino Velardi lit up and sweetened the CFW runway with diamonds, crystals, dresses that sparkle, chocolate mink and velvet. In our pre-coverage interview, Velardi told “First Class Fashionista” that his show would be “kick-a$$, sexy and tasteful” and he didn’t disappoint. See the interview HERE.
“I like to do big shows here in Denver,” says Gino Velardi.
The self-taught designer whose “vision is to make every woman feel sexy, confident and beautiful” featured wearable high-fashion evening wear. What we saw on the runway was a designer’s love and understanding of the woman’s body, classy but fearless sexuality, and the power of femininity. Velardi, who is inspired by his grandmother, mom and sister, starts with the psychology of a woman by simply working to understands her needs.
Women put a lot of thought into what they decide to wear, and this custom designer does too–Gino Velardi Designs are proudly made just for her!
Enjoy the entire show!
