Equillibrium at Frost!

Deb HenriksenDeb Henriksen of Equillibrium was one of the very first designers to participate in our first ever fashion market in 2004!! It’s so wonderful to have her back for our 13th annual holiday market!!

How do you define fashion?
An art form everyone can express themselves in,  just by wearing it.

eqkustomperiodic2How long have you be designing your collection and where can we find them?

Equillibrium was established in 2000.  Over the years we have sold in over 20 stores.  Currently we are focused on direct sales through our  Website:   www.equillibrium.com,   our Denver Show Room,  and Pop-up events.

How does your inspiration appear in your designs?

Through the textiles,  graphics,  and overall design aesthetic…  

eqkustomperiodic1What do you want your fashion to personally express to the world when worn?

As a Designer,  I am always trying to invoke an emotion through fashion.  One that is positive and empowering to both the wearer and viewer on the street.

What one designer would you love to collaborate with? 

Vivienne Westwood for sure!  I just LOVE her,  and appreciate all she has done and does for punx,  high fashion,  and our environment!

Earlier this summer, I got to be a judge for a very special fashion competition hosted by the ArtScene by Denver8TV. 3 fashion students from the Art Institute showcased their couture dresses and now… it’s up to YOU to vote!! Poll closes October 25th!

Watch the runway shows and learn more about each designer… then cast your vote!

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.

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 🙂
