Hello beautiful Fashionistas! Before I post my third Designer Spotlight Post, I wanted to share my experience at my very first Fashion Show for Denver Fashion Week, which was November 4th through the 11th.
Denver Fashion Week 2018 is just now coming to an end. My girlfriend, Janell, went with me to the final night for the National Designers Fashion Show on November 10th. I will say though, that it was a bit confusing as far as which Designers were SUPPOSED to be there and then which ones’ were ACTUALLY there. More regarding that later. About Denver Fashion Week and the program is listed below showing the lineup of Designers.
But first, here are a couple of pictures of us getting ready for the event!:

When we went in to the Fashion Show, we got our pictures taken on the Red Carpet!:
We had front row tickets for the event that we thought was going to last 3 hours, but it actually only lasted about half that time. Strangely, a few a these Designers above were not there. BUT, L’Agence Fashion WAS there, which I was pretty excited about. Pam and Gela, Nicolas K, and J Brand were not there. I’ve never been to a Fashion Show, but that didn’t seem normal to me to have them printed on the schedules, but not have them show up! I realize it was Denver Fashion Week and not NY or Paris Fashion Week, but I still thought it was rather strange. Anyone else who went to this event notice this strange occurrence? Or is it normal for scheduled National Dssigners to NOT show up?
Either way, we had a fabulous time and it was a night to remember! So glad we went and experienced this.
I got in the full spirit of the night with this first picture. I joked that I liked the look so much, I may incorporate it into my everyday look 😉!
This is towards the end of the night, hence the sour look on my face. I was starting to fade lol!
And of course, the classic bathroom selfie HAD to be taken!
All in all, it was a great night, albeit a short National Designers Fashion Show.
And just to let you all know what we wore to this event – I wore a Dress the Population Mini Sequin dark turquoise dress with Jessica Simpson white heels and a Rebecca Minkoff White holographic Crossbody bag. I chose to stay true to my edgy sense of style and add white heels and a bag to go against the norm of wearing black accessories. Then an ivory/white coat because we had a Winter storm moving in fairly quickly that evening.
Janell wore a purple Bardot Sequin Dress with Black boots and a black faux fur coat. She looked phenomenal and we both got lots of compliments on our looks.
I hope you liked this post and the fun pictures that went along with it. I’d love to get some comments from anyone who went to this event or any others like it and what your experience was like!
