The summer fashion season certainly kicked off this past weekend at the Anthomania Fashion Show, presented by Studio Colfax. This family run artisan boutique on Colfax Avenue put on a wonderful fashion show in their very own courtyard in the back of the store.
The show featured local designers such Minus the Dart, Symantha Perrera, and PUPIL Clothing. Hair was done by Jade Gordons Onsixth, and makeup by Cynthia Delgado. With yummy food provided by Extreme Pizza – Denver, and even iced tea by RL Linden & Co.
The show began with models emerging from the back exit out of the store on to a brick walk way which wrapped around the entire courtyard and made for a great runway. Guests were seated all along the courtyard and given perfect little wooden fans to keep cool during the hot summer night. While it was definitely warm out, the weather was certainly not the only thing hot about the evening. Kicking off the show, we saw designs from FACE aka Symantha Perra, one in particular was a bright orange and red floral dress and this dress was hot to say the least. Her designs got me feelin’ some type of way for fashion this summer season! Next we saw designs from pupil and Minus the Dart. With leggings such as “Miente Libre Leggings” and “Opius Wars Leggings” from pupil and sleek black poncho’s from Minus the Dart, topped with jewelry from Canned Good, the combined look was powerful and definitely made a statement.
Minus the Dart ended the show with a variety of beautiful top and skirt pairings. She also featured a casual striped shirt dress that was sold right off the runway! If you’re looking to spice up your summer wardrobe or you’re just in need of a couple timeless pieces, you’re sure to find something provided by one of if not all of these designers!
The show concluded just in time for a typical late afternoon Denver summer shower and I was in serious need of one of Minus the Dart’s awesome poncho’s!
