Brandi Shigley, founder of Fashion Denver, is one of the key pieces to the growing and vibrant fashion industry in Denver. Since I moved back to the area four years ago, I have had the pleasure to work with Brandi on several occasions and I have been very impressed with her passion, creativity and drive. We are very blessed to have this talented lady and voice of public support!

Testimonial from Rachel Lataitis | Founder of Mali Mamas
“Scheduling a one-on-one consultation with Brandi Shigley was one of my smartest business decisions. She is a highly experienced professional who shared her wisdom of overcoming barriers, and executing the steps necessary to take projects to the next level. She is a powerful visionary, and has no problem understanding the needs, and goals, of her clients. Brandi was attentive, and focused on exactly what I wanted to accomplish. She helped me to create a solid structure that broke down the complex stages of strategy and development. After our consultation, I knew exactly how to prioritize my tasks, and had a newfound clarity of my vision.
Brandi is a rare consultant – one who truly respects an entrepreneur’s passion, but also has the business knowledge required to turn concept into creation. I highly recommend a one-on-one consultation to anyone looking to strengthen foundations, overcome challenges, and/ or organize their execution process. She is an incredibly valuable resource for entrepreneurs.”

Testimonial from Dana Cain | Event producer
“When I launched the Fashion Pavilion at the new Denver County Fair, I knew there was only one person I wanted to be our Pavilion Manager: Brandi Shigley! I’d attended her events, visited her shop, and I knew that she is Denver’s IT GIRL when it comes to fashion event coordination. She was magnificent in the job. Beyond my wildest hopes! Not only did she keep her pavilion running smoothly, but she seemed omnipresent at the Fair – roller skating about like a smiling superhero, lending a hand in OTHER pavilions that needed help, too. She was often a cheery, reassuring voice on our walkie talkie system, and we all knew that she was there, ready to help, and that all of her jobs had been done and done right. She was always ready to step beyond her job description and go the extra mile to offer help wherever it was needed.
One of my favorite memories of the fair is working with Brandi. And not only that – when the time came for her to take the stage and peform with her band – she knocked it out of the park! Honestly – the compliments and positive feedback on her performance flooded in. Everyone loved her. And she did that at the same time she was technically managing the pavilion. All seamless, all professional, all beyond expectations.
I am actively looking for ways to work with Brandi on other projects in the future. She just makes everything fun!”

Testimonial from Ginger White | Denver Office of Cultural Affairs
“Brandi brings a unique mix of enthusiasm, know-how and optimism to her presentations, giving those with whom she shares her wisdom both the tools and the inspiration to achieve their creative aspirations!”
This year I am celebrating 13 years of being an entrepreneur. From starting out my own handbag business at the age of 23, to evolving into a marketing / PR / consulting business and starting Fashion Denver, I know what it takes to be passionate about something and turn it into a business. One of my passions is sharing my knowledge and experiences with others. I’ve spoke for all ages from the Young American’s Bank Girl’s Camp to the students at Colorado State University to the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs. Look Mom! I’m using my Communications Degree : ) If you are interested in having me come and speak to your organization, school, or group, please contact me and let me know what your ideas are!
Testimonial from Matt Brinton, Assistant Director of Student Activities, MSU Denver
“We invited Brandi to campus as part of a “Self-Made” series we hosted on campus in the Spring Semester of 2011. This three-part series has highlighted successful entrepreneurs in Colorado and gave them a platform to share their inspiring stories with our campus community. Brandi brought her unique and quirky style to the event and gave us a day to remember.”
