Vespaperitivo Fashion Show

On May 23rd, prior to the clock ticking to 6:00pm, a large dark cloud swirled around Cluster Studios. As I pulled into the parking area, I saw Colorado’s most fashionable designers running with newspapers protecting their finely styled ‘dos. Walking into the studio I could feel the fashion and beauty that was soon to fill the room. Looking left to right vespas, which were also at the entry, lined the entire studio. There were vespas everywhere, and they were from Erico Motor Sports and Mopar.

I had the chance to talk to Matthew Houser from Erico Motor Sports. He let me in on the price points, speeds and the classic vespas available in-store. He was a super awesome guy, who definitely had a lot of knowledge about the merchandise presented at Vespaperitivo.

Another vendor supporting Loredana Venturi’s Vespaperitivo event was Steph Sanders from Soul Foundation. She was selling handmade Ugandan bags and clutches made from recycled paper. With each purchase the Ugandan community can sustain development and education.

And to keep the people chatting and gathering there was a wide spread of cheese, meat, bread, fruits and vegetables.

Not only did all guests get to enjoy this amazing spread, but there was also endless red and white wine.

As if this night couldn’t be any more enjoyable, another amazing supporter of this event was Suerte Tequila.

Once everyone settled into this Italian happy hour, the DJ switched the track from “getting to know each other” music and changed the vibe to runway music. At this time all guests and attendees knew what was about to happen – the fashion show!
