We go go, we gone to have to go solo. Fire, fire you could take me hire. Take me to the mountains, start a revolution. Holding my hand, we can make, we can make revolutions. A brand new season. Keeping in motion because rhyme is the reason…
The new Nissan Versa Note is inspired by life’s passions and the music that accompanies it, so Nissan asked select bloggers to share their passions, hobbies and joyful moments. As a fashion blogger, my passion has evolved into supporting local, indie-designers in Denver, Colorado. When I travel and people ask me what I do they say, “Really? Does Denver have fashion? I smile and say, “Yes, Denver does have fashion, and I’m glad you asked me that…Bloggers are all about getting the word out, right? From talented designers, beautiful models, hair and makeup artists, fashion and event photographers, to journalists and bloggers, the mile high city is the perfect destination for the fashion enthusiast—We have great runway music too. My favorite Denver runway song this year was Fashionista by Jimmy James. Like Nissan’s 2014 big little car, Denver gives a lot for a little.
Living life on a fashionista high note, tonight I am headed off to an amazing, amazing fashion show, the Barrera International Autumn/Winter 2014 Preview Collection. It’s Asia meets French Couture! 22-year-old Juan Jimenez is the trail-blazing Barrera International designer. He recently graduated from Denver’s Johnson & Whales and interned at Tom Ford. His garments are “handcut, assembled, stitched, and sewn to achieve perfection.”
Experiencing the passion of local designers like Jimenez continues to fuel and ignite my own passions. So I decided to ask the Barrera International designer how music plays a role in the inspiration for his designs. And because I thought his song selections, Underwater by Bassnectar and Crave You by Flight Facilities, complimented his first solo show last year, I also asked him to share with me some of the songs that will accompany the runway presentation tonight.
“It’s the music that inspires me to think outside of the box. I always imagine the model walking in the piece to a particular song or album and then it helps me to look into other cultures and pull elements from my different aspects. This year many of the songs are by Lulu Rougue and Trentemoller. The songs include “Bless You”, Lulus Theme, and Melankolie. I love it because of the deep bass, voice and beat,” explains Jimenez.
