This morning I took our in house French designer Raphael to the airport as he ends his journey in Denver. He designed some beautiful fashions, did some custom orders, and got to learn a little English. We’ll miss his quirky energy but I know he’s got a new sense of inspiration and is excited to get back to Toulouse and get back to creating.
While at the airport, I realized that 7 out of 10 women were wearing some form of Uggs. Whether pairing with sweatpants or cute jeans, they seemed to be everywhere!
To be honest, I always thought that Uggs were kind of ugly. And it wasn’t until I recently slipped on a pair that I realized, holy moly! They’re not only comfortable and warm, but they’re kind of cute! I got some black ones for Christmas and had Raf paint them to make them my own. As I head up the mountains for the New Years weekend, I’m actually thankful to have a pair of comfy warm boots to lounge and relax in.
It’s funny how you can change your mind once you try something on.
With 2011 right around the corner and the celebration of being in our new space for 1 year, we are super excited to get 2011 started! We have so many exciting things planned beginning with adding color to the boutique, adding more designers, offering more business consulting services, along with many exciting fun events!!
When I first started my first business (b.shigley designs) over 11 years ago, I had no idea that I would have a shop 11 years later and I had no idea that I would get to spend every day surrounded by other designers! I’m so grateful for all of the things that being an entrepreneur has brought me and will bring me and Fashion Denver in the future!!
One of my goals is to help get our Colorado designers out there nationally and internationally via media and boutiques! Denver has been working VERY hard creating a community of creatives and it’s time our talent is getting national and international recognition! I am so proud of all of the creativity here in Colorado and feel blessed that I can make a contribution and provide a space for our creatives to shine!
