Jewelry at Glambomb 4

GlamBomb 4 took place this past Wednesday night, April 16. An event not to be missed, Glambomb took place at a stunning mansion in the highlands with breathtaking views of downtown Denver. The home won the Mayor’s Design Award in 2011. Glambomb is a series of events that showcases jewelry designers from around the country to benefit charity. This season’s event benefited First Descents, a Denver nonprofit organization that sends young adult cancer survivors to outdoor camps for a trip of a lifetime.

 

Rooftop Jewlelry

The event displayed 21 jewelry designers, some local to Colorado and others from around the county. Many of the designers were in attendance, allowing customers to talk to the designer and learn about the inspiration for the piece. All of the jewelry was one of a kind and very unique.Mansion

 

The sold out event was wildly successful and raised enough money to send at least 3 campers on a trip.

Brad Benefiel is a wonderful friend of Fashion Denver and when we decided to close down the retail side of things and convert it into the office to turn dreamers into doers, he designed our dream space! Complete with a treehouse,  a bar, a foosball coffee table, and much much more, he created a space that allowed for us to accomplish all of our dreams!  Brad Benefiel

 

Brad stopped by today, looking stylish, as per the usual. He’s rockin’ his shirt he bought in Argentina by an Argentian company along with some pants by H&M and sneakers designed by DVS. The sneakers are actually designed for fixed gear cyclists and provide support for the petals, all the while looking ever so stylish.

Each designer was allowed to bring one model dressed in their designs (or wear their own designs themselves.) Each designer had a chance to talk about their unique design and mingle with the rest of the Denver fashion industry.

Knew Conscious Gallery Presents a Fashion Show and Concert:
“Alien Life: The Second Coming”- May 2014

Denver, CO -In May 2014, Knew Conscious presents “Alien Life: The Second Coming”, a fashion show featuring local and national fashion designers. This is the second annual fashion show featuring designs inspired by the art of Denver digital artist Kurt Redeker’s artwork featuring alien beings.

Knew Conscious is seeking experienced fashion designers for this special event. Once selected, each designer will be assigned an Alien Being to use as his or her inspiration for a 3-5 look mini-collection. The looks will be compiled of avant-garde pieces, and we encourage designers to test their abilities to come up with something out of this world. Prior to the event, there will be several meetings with the members of Knew Conscious to discuss designs, fittings with models and a dress rehearsal. Submissions for consideration should include at lease three high-resolution photos of past work, the designer’s biography, and a short letter stating why the designer would be a good fit for the Alien Life fashion show.

Kurt Redeker is a digital artist based in Denver, Colorado. Redeker is a student of geometric patternmaking, taking cues from Islamic, Mayan and Aztec art and imagery. His art is heavily influenced by sacred geometry, the ancient study of the fundamental patterns of life, the oldest math known to man. By studying the structure of these images and their geometric relationship to one another, his art seeks to gain insight into the aesthetic and scientific laws of the universe. By manipulating pattern and color to create movement within a static medium, Redeker endeavors to communicate a portal to life; he believes that his art taps into the healing power of universal vibration and engages a visionary consciousness in the viewer.

Fun at a Girls Night Out

This past Tuesday evening, I stopped by Porch Light Real Estate Group on S. University for a collective trunk show featuring Live Worldly, Hailee Grace, and Feline Swimwear.  This uber chic office was transformed into a mini boutique and I was able to get a sample of these 3 companies, all female owned and operated.  It was pretty much a “Girl Power” kind of evening with wine and snacks.

Trunk Show funOf course, since we are sponsored by Luna Bars, I brought over the latest and tastiest of protein bars making sure that the girls took boxes home for when they may get a little hangry (hungry-angry… oh wait.. is that just me?).

I tried on 3 different swimsuits and finally settled on mix and match top, florescent green, harkening back to my 7th and 8th grade years, but now, a little sassier. I felt like a teenager and a slumber party having so much fun gabbing with the girls and running around in my swimsuit.

Feline Swimwear

Live Worldly operates online bringing the latest of fashions that are giving back to the community. They brought a variety of athletic gear from yoga pants, running jackets, to a cute selection of bicycle messenger hats.  They carry a collection of designers and brands from all over the world!

Live Worldly

Hailee and Grace, a boutique located on Larimer Square, is a fairly new boutique, getting ready to celebrate their 1-year anniversary. The boutique is named after the owners Hailee and Grace, two stylish friends with a passion for fashion. We had a great time hanging out, being silly, and taking #selfies :) I walked away with a really cute lace bralette. I think I’ll need to pick up more colors!
