No Fear Here

Last week at Fashion Denver we had the pleasure of speaking with Brian Scoop Nemeth, a local designer that could be summed up by two words: inspiring and courageous.

Brian is a young man who, in spite of having Aspergers/Autism, is giving it his all when it comes to becoming a designer. He has researched his market, sketched out several design and has utilized a seamstress to create his first sample, all of which has led up to a little number called the ONEderkini (wonder kini).

The ONEderkini is a bathing suit that combines comfort and support with a touch of skin showing. Like the ONEderkini, Brian is inspirational and original. He is a great example for all who are aspiring to do something great; each one of us has individual obstacles but it is important to give it 100% when trying to do what you and love what you do. Keep an eye out for Brian’s indiegogo campaign link, a campaign which will allow you to donate to help Brian keep going!

New Summer Fashion Denver Intern

Aviary Photo_130462997911239672Hi fellow Fashion Denver fans,

I am so pleased to meet you all as the new Fashion Denver Summer Intern. My name is Jacqueline Madrid and I recently graduated from Metropolitan State University with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. My very first article I attempted to write while in school was about Fashion Denver; honestly I have yet to show Brandi the finish piece due to the unfortunately low grade (hey now, it was my first article.) At that point I could not have imaged that two summers later I would be working as the intern for Fashion Denver and with Brandi.

Someday I want to own my own boutique, maybe start a male consulting firm, travel to LA to dabble with Celebrity PR and finally, become a stylist. I know, wow. But life is long and a girl can dream right? As for now, I love being a native and can’t imagine leaving Denver. I am so happy to be the intern for Fashion Denver and I am looking forward to soaking up all the knowledge I possibly can from the experience.

Some of my duties for summer include capturing the street style around the city so beware, if you look good I will find you! Also, I will be blogging for our website, attending local fashion events and most importantly assisting with the Summer Fashion Denver Market SPLASH on July 20th, which I hope to see you all there. It is going to be a great summer for us and I hope for you too.

Nice to meet you all and thanks so much for reading this – Jacqueline
