Denver Street Boutique Parks at Fashion Denver!

We are  so excited to have The Denver Street Boutique at the Fashion Denver headquarters on a much warmer day when it’s not 0 degrees out!! Stay tuned for dates!

Lindsey TreesRead our interview with Lindsey Trees, brains behind this stylish mobile fashion boutique!

What inspired you to create Denver Street Boutique and how long have you been around?

I love fashion and have ALWAYS wanted my own store. I stumbled upon the concept of a Fashion Truck which made my dream so much more realistic! Bought the truck in May and were live in August – about 90 days in biz at this point.

How would you describe the fashions that you carry?

Stylish, trendy women’s clothing at a moderate price. I am all about trends, but do capture classic styles as well.

Faves
Lindsey’s favorite item

What item of clothing / accessory can you not live without. Please take a picture of it too!

My latest obsession is my sequin-sleeved army jacket. I sought it out at LA market and is now a chilly weather staple 🙂

What are you doing when you’re not on the truck?

Usually hanging with my kiddos and hubby, but you can likely find me doing yoga, running or drinking wine with friends 🙂 I also LOVE travel, just doesn’t happen enough these days.

What 3 things would you want if stranded on an island?

A cushy lounge chair, vino and a good book.

What are your thoughts on the Denver fashion scene?

It is on the up and up! I feel like Denver is definitely starting to show its true fashionista and I am excited to be joining the community in this exciting time!

What’s in store for the next 6 months?

E commerce – #1 goal is getting The Street Boutique store online…a solid weekly schedule will be in the works too so we are easier to track down.

What is the best way to find you and your fabulous truck on the streets?

Facebook and Instagram. We will have a calendar online in 2015 as well, part of our goal to be more predictable 🙂

Grand Opening party for Revolver: A Salon! Where Mad Men meets The Beatles.

Grand Opening forRevolver: A Salon! 

Where Mad Men meets The Beatles.
Saturday, August 23rd 7pm-11pm
1489 Steele St, Denver, Colorado 80206

Revolver is the first solo business venture for owner and stylist Kitty Vincent.  Kitty is a native to Denver, and has been active in both its fashion and music communities for close to a decade and a half.  She started out 14 years ago working in record stores like the historic Wax Trax, and playing in bands, the most notable of which was Le Divorce from 2008-2012.  She became a hair stylist in 2002 and spent the first 7 years of her career working for The Parlour, an extremely successful Denver salon chain.  After a brief partnership at 3 Little Birds Salon in 2012-13, Kitty left to open her own business.

Screen shot 2014-08-18 at 12.36.41 PM

As a lifetime lover of The Beatles and everything mod, it seemed only natural to create a space that would incorporate these things.  The early-mid 60’s had truly great style, in both fashion and design, as well as great music. To Kitty, it seemed like the perfect atmosphere for a truly great salon.  Clients can get a haircut while relaxing with a manhattan, or thumb through their vinyl collection and play a record while they wait in the lobby. The staff at Revolver seek to create a hip, unique, and comfortable space where clients can relax and leave looking amazing. Whether they see themselves as Don Draper or Keith Richards, Marilyn Monroe or Patti Smith, guests will find a home with Revolver.

They are located in Congress/City Park, right in the bustling heart of east Colfax’s densely populated Bluebird Theater district, They are surrounded by The Tattered Cover, Twist & Shout, Stella Trattoria, Goosetown, Mezcal, Atomic Cowboy, Hooked on Colfax Cafe, Endorphin Gym & Yoga, and many other great businesses.

The owner and staff can’t wait to celebrate their new space with you on August 23rd.  Party will be held at the salon 1489 Steele St, on the SW corner of Colfax and Steele.

Kurt Redeker is a digital artist based in Denver, Colorado. Redeker is a student of geometric patternmaking, taking cues from Islamic, Mayan and Aztec art and imagery. His art is heavily influenced by sacred geometry, the ancient study of the fundamental patterns of life, the oldest math known to man. By studying the structure of these images and their geometric relationship to one another, his art seeks to gain insight into the aesthetic and scientific laws of the universe. By manipulating pattern and color to create movement within a static medium, Redeker endeavors to communicate a portal to life; he believes that his art taps into the healing power of universal vibration and engages a visionary consciousness in the viewer.
