Fashion Denver

With your participation in the WordLove Tour, you’ll be taken over by an infectious power of positivity and strength. Each participant will be invited to a closed group forum on Facebook with Brandi and Sahar. This forum is provided so that you can keep in touch, especially when you feel you need empowerment and support. After attending the tour, you will also be able to stay in-touch with the topics covered during the presentation with your very own digital workbook, including “Find Your Voice” and “Do What You Love”.

Your very own FCF had the amazing chance to talk to Brandi Shigley (right) about the upcoming WordLove Tour.


FCF: What can people expect when attending the WordLove Tour?

Brandi: People can expect to be motivated, inspired, and equipped with the tools and techniques to find their voice and create a life in which they are taking their passions to the next level.

FCF: Can you tell me your future plans with the tour? For example what should we expect next year.

Brandi: Sahar (my co-inspirer) and I will be in New York City in October with the WordLove tour. We plan to tour a couple times a year in different parts of the nation.

FCF: What are your plans with Fashion Denver, now that you are focusing on the WordLove Tour?

Brandi: I’ve never been somebody who can only focus on 1 thing. My focuses are timely. Right now I’m focusing on WordLove but as soon as I’m back, the planning and implementation will continue for our Fashion Denver summer market. When I’m back from the tour, I will also be focusing on my weekly accountability sessions with dreamers who are becoming doers. All of this information can be found at

FCF: Brandi, anyone who follows you or has met you in person knows that you are a very positive and optimistic person. What advice can you give to someone struggling or thinking about giving up? What keeps you motivated?

Brandi: For people who are struggling:

1) Surround yourself with positive and inspiring people. Stay away from getting sucked into drama which drains your energy to focus on what you love.
2) Don’t give up! Unless you realize that you honestly just don’t want to pursue that passion. It happens!
3) Find a mentor, job shadow, or interview somebody in the field that’s doing something similar to what you love.
4) Put yourself out there and be proud of who you are.
I stay motivated when I constantly challenge myself. Whether it’s trying new design techniques (graphic design or with my handbags) or creating a new event that goes outside my comfort zone. WordLove is just that, a new challenge!

FCF: What is the main goal or focus of the WordLove Tour?

Brandi: The main focus is to un-stick people from their fears. To free themselves so they an be in a position to speak their mind and do what they love.

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!!!
