U.N.I.T.Y. is a collaborative effort between T.KEONÁ and Michael Sullivan. Inspired by Queen Latifah, Janelle Monét and Ancient Egyptian goddesses, they came together to create this collection, making it impossible to miss their love of design and their drive for success.

Fashion is one thing ‘The Haus’ will always celebrate and showcase, but there will also be local music including Denver’s own Su Charles (they are so honored and humbled to have her be a part of this amazing event), fine art, vendors to suit the needs of the interests and demographics, and charity. The Haus will be supporting ‘Hey Denver’ with this show to give their hears and support to the LGBT community.

Last years’ collection ‘Grafiki’, as well as a preview of ‘U.N.I.T.Y.’ will be shown at Blush and Blu on April 24th. The official U.N.I.T.Y. collection will be fully premiered the next night at Mix Hookah Lounge on April 25th, 2015. Doors will open at 6pm. Hosting the show is Denver’s own, Brandi Shigley. Producer, Director & Founder of Fashion Denver (We are honored to have her represent us on such a huge level). Jervay Jknow Vanderhorst will also be hosting! He has promoted for the BET Honors, Latin Billboards, NFL Honors, Soul Train Awards and so many other incredible events. They are so humbled by his presence and his support.

The Haus is putting on this event to promote local artists and to inspire everyone around us to live and follow their own hearts and passions. They strive to bring creativity to the community and we know that our events will only get bigger and better from here. This is only because of our community though, and they hope that we can see all of you on this night of art, experience and joy.

 

                                                                         

 

Sahar Paz “Find Your Voice” Book Reading

Book Reading with Sahar Paz
April 25th, 2015 3-5pm
Fashion Denver HQ
1070 Bannock Street

“Words. It’s the one thing we all have in common.” Words are what helped Sahar Paz write the book “Find Your Voice: The Life You Crave is a Conversation Away” in which she shares the stories that not only took her voice, but brought back her voice. The book also serves as a guide for you to peel back your layers to listen and understand your inner voice. Brandi Shigley with Do What You Love, Love What You Do will have the pleasure of hosting Sahar Paz for her “Find Your Voice” book reading on April 25th at the Do What You Love World Headquarters, 1070 Bannock Street. The book reading will be free and open to the public.

FYV-cover-300x300Through “Find Your Voice” Sahar shares how she found the right remedy for living. She’ll help guide you to form daily habits that help you learn how to tune-in and listen to yourself. And once you have centered yourself, “Find Your Voice,” will help you build a vocabulary that is unique to your personality. And soon, your everyday practice will be the way you voice what you deserve with peace and clarity. This book is more than a memoir, it is a tool for reflection and a guide, based on Cognitive Behavior Therapy, for tuning in to your authentic, powerful inner voice to create the life you crave.

Screen shot 2015-03-09 at 7.39.49 PMSahar was shamed and shushed from the ages of 9 to 25, her thoughts, wardrobe and existence as a girl were ignored. Early in her life she didn’t have the emotional vocabulary to release the negative energy she was digesting in revolutionary Iran. Her family then relocated to the United States or Denver, Colorado to be exact when she was in third grade. This became a new life for her, the land of the free. Trying to endure a new home became harder than surviving the Iraq-Iran war. It took her over 15 years, several failed attempts at partnership and suicide to understand and overcome the effects of her previous experiences and learn to live with them.

This is not the first time Sahar Paz and Brandi Shigley have come together and collaborated. They first met in 2005 in which Brandi offered Sahar a scholarship to her “Do What You Love, Love What You Do” workshop. With the help of Brandi, Sahar became inspired, motivated and armed with the tools and techniques to go from a dreamer to a doer. They officially collaborated for the WorldLove tour, which was a workshop that inspired people to speak from the place where their soul and personality intersect, turning dreamers into doers.

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 🙂
