Jump of Joy

Literally, APERITIVO is a pre-meal drink whose scope is to stimulate appetite, but it has come to signify the ritual of going out for a drink and ”FACCIAMOCI UN APERITIVO” (let’s have an aperitivo) is what you hear in Milan, Rome, and Florence…all the time and as the most casual way to meet up with friends. It certainly gives you a chance to socialize and relax while snacking on something delicious.

MODA in Italian is the translation of “Fashion” while APERITIVO…, so MODAPERITIVO Art Night will bring friends, fashion, music, food and wine together.

On Thursday March 13th at 5pm expect to walk through a Show Case installation displaying some of the BEST looks from the most known local fashion designers in Colorado. As you walk through these beautiful and crazy creations, you will have the opportunity to talk to Gino Velardi, Francis D Roces, Maggie Burns, and Gabriela Martinez…just to name a few. Not only can you talk to them about ANYTHING…but, if you’re interested in the details of fashion, you can find out how they put these amazing ensembles together, their inspirations, and learn about their creative identities!!!

About MarissaL

I'm Marissa. I'm a graduate from The Art Institute of Colorado with a bachelor's in fashion design. I started my career with FCF during my externship course at AIC, I have continued to stay with the company after graduation. What I love about FCF is how we get to attend event and cover local fashion shows. The team of FCF has grown tremendously and we have a great mentor to help us along the way. I'm very excited because we are currently planning our own fashion show/event!!! Currently I'm writing celebrity articles, covering the newest news and gossip in Hollywood. I would love to hear reviews and comments on the articles I write. Fashion is not just what you wear, but it is within your lifestyle. There is more to fashion than what name you have on. Fashion is in the air we breath and the images we see. If there is anything you would like to hear more about, let me know. Thank you for visiting my profile on First Class Fashionista!!!
