One of the first few outfits to walk out struck the crowd with a flavor they couldn’t resist cheering for. The owner and creator of this line, Dani, stepped out on stage to model her own design. A light electric blue lace jumpsuit took center stage. Paired with a small belt to cinch the waist, this combination was nothing short of flattering. Extra fabric flowed off the sides of the legs to give it that va-va-voom. The high neckline and snug fit offered a sexy look while still keeping it sophisticated.
The menswear was classy and proper, it impressed me to say the least. Perfectly tailored suits seamlessly flowed down the runway. The structure was perfect and created an elegance. This gorgeous deep blue blazer with a dainty pattern on it mixed the right amount of proper and casual together. It fit the model like a dream and accentuated the shoulders, arms, and midsection just right. “Male model off duty” was the perfect way to describe this look. The light outerwear coat was simple and understated, perfect to pair with any look. The marbled buttons gave it some detailing and when paired with the multi-toned scarf, the model was ready to take NYC by storm.
Up next, a unique style strutted down the stage giving Denver something it has never seen. A jumpsuit with a mesh underlaying formed to the body while long fringe hung off in tiers. The long thin straps offered a low back, showing the perfect amount of skin. Fringe was the star of the show and it danced beautifully as the model glided down runway.
Casual men’s streetwear took off with a twist. The Miami flavor had taken over with this look. A black long sleeve button up was complete with some color blocking near the beginning of the sleeves. When paired with it’s reverse, a white jean with distressed knees and black paint like strokes nearing the bottom, this look screamed night out in Miami. These slick pieces were universal and could be styled a multitude of ways.
Between the next three suit looks, my jaw was on the floor. Not only did these look INCREDIBLE on the models, the construction of them was something not often seen in Denver. The color coordination was powerful and the tailoring made the men look smooth and stylish. Between the blues, reds, and blacks, these men looked nothing short of dapper and complicated. This is the “I-effortlessly-pickup-ladies-everywhere-I-go” look.
This next piece was a show stopper. Between the color blocked sequins and bright colors, this dress was turning heads. Short and flirty, it elongated the models legs. It was the perfect dress to rock at the club on a warm, summer night. The plunging neckline complimented by the change in color to black and gold was sexy and classy at the same time.
One of my favorite women’s pieces of the night was a ravishing two piece set. Embroidered lace and gorgeous ivory and fleshy tones complimented the feminine, sophisticated look. The scalloped detailing on the pants and sleeves added another womanly touch. This set would be perfect for a summer brunch with girlfriends or a night out.
Classic and tasteful – what better way to describe a dress like this one? Although all of the trendy pieces were to die for, sometimes it’s good to see that original, classic black dress. With its long length, fitted form, and high neckline, this dress screamed ball gown to me. With the added flare of the almost hip high slit and lace detailing down the sides of the slit, this piece still offered a little bit of Miami.
One of my favorite ending pieces was a dazzling metallic gown. The brown-gold color was unique and the sparkle that the dress emanated left the model looking radiant. Another almost hip high slit was charming and added an enchanting component to the dress. All together, this dress was a dashing success.
Between the classic items and the more trendy pieces, Miami definitely left its mark on Denver. Luxe303 is going to continue with its success, leaving a little bit of Miami spice everywhere it goes.
