Bleeding Hearts at Fashion Denver

Oh how we love local music, local talent, and most of all, bringing these 2 things together!  Katie Wells of GiddyUp and her “Bleeding Hearts” tees have inspired a fun project that we’re teaming up with John Common on.  We are pairing 6 local Denver designers with 6 song titles on John’s latest album creating a t-shirt collaboration.  Each designer will design a graphic to match the song title! We’re so excited to see what they come up with. These limited edition tees will tour with John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light as well as be available at Fashion Denver.

We love having Katie Well’s creativity flow out of our boutique!  John Common fell in love with his tee and wore it for the 303 Magazine shoot along with other Fashion Denver fashions.
