The last night of 303 magazine’s Denver Fashion Weekend was definitely a finale. The 1920’s circus theme was completed with circus acts, staff in clown face paint and even a Wolf to make for a magical evening among the fashionitas of Denver. Fur coats and head pieces completed the look of the era.
After a contortionist’s cage routine, the Jose Duran line of men’s and women’s apparel took the runway. He used stripes in different directions, wrapped fabric and layers to give the looks texture and edginess. The men’s looks featured hooded tops in different mesh and cottons paired with pants accessorized with chains and hardware. The women’s looks varied from striped shirts and leather-ish leggings to pretty patterned dresses. The styling included beehives for the women and slicked back hair for men, creating looks that were avant-garde but also reminiscent of Gothic looks.
The second act was a show of designer tutus made by House of Arden and styled with tops and accessories from Creme de la Couture. Colorful tulle creations were complimented by designer and vintage tops used to dress up, and dress down the tutus into complete and wearable looks. Floral was an ongoing theme in the skirt’s designs as well as the tops they were paired with. Bright colors mixed with pastels is a look that was repeated and is trending for spring; even the make-up used the combo with bright colored eye shadow, muted face make-up and blush. These looks were feminine in nature but brought a certain hip element to a skirt that is typically reserved for ballerinas.
303 Magazine put on a great show that was entertaining and overall a fun experience. I look forward to the next show! Watch it again. Pics coming soon.
