DFW Spring 2015 Highlights
10 Highlights From Last Week’s Events
Denver Fashion Weekend Spring ’15, presented by Schomp Automotive, was a huge hit last week on April-May 3. The four-night event presented Denver’s elite the hottest trends in fashion, styling and hair. The venue was filled with hundreds of people each night, looking for a unique experience that this event offers each season. Schomp hosted a giant lounge on the second level where guests could grab a drink and relax before the show began. Upstairs in the cocktail area, there was a DJ performing each night, surrounded by food vendors and pop-up boutiques. The first couple hours of the night were dedicated to lounging, shopping and supporting local businesses. Once the lights dimmed in the runway area, the show was set to begin. Each night offered something different and gave a different perspective on the fashion and creative industries here in Denver.
If you weren’t able to attend the event, or at least only made it a night or two, here is a recap of the DFW Spring 2015 highlights. Thank you to everyone who came out to support Denver Fashion Weekend! We’ll see you the in fall!
303 Awards and Southwest Hairstyling Awards
A couple months ago, 303 Magazine launched the 303 Awards, asking the public to vote for their favorite restaurant, boutique, designer and more. The awards were giving out on Wednesday, April 29 and there were some surprising and exciting wins. Sushi Den took home best restaurant. Jiberish won Best Boutique and Best Designer. And Peyton Manning won the 303 Denver Icon Award. The SW Hairstyling Awards were given out to local and national winners as well.
The Photo Booth
If you went in a group to DFW, chances are that you hit up the photo booth, which was directly next to the Schomp Lounge on the second level. 303 Magazine photographers were there to capture moments of guests and their friends as everyone looked fashionable and had a great time.
If you missed DFW completely, you missed seeing the largest runway Denver Fashion Weekend has ever hosted. It was taller, wider and presented the runway looks even better this season.
Shop Zoe Life
High-end athletic apparel never looked so good. Shop Zoe Life presented 14 athletic looks that made the crowd go crazy. Whether you’re playing tennis, gong to the gym, or even hitting up a boxing ring, Shop Zoe Life offers something stylish, comfortable and on-trend.
The Schomp Lounge
Since Schomp Automotive presented this season’s Denver Fashion Weekend, Schomp had to go even bigger and better with its lounge. On the entire second level, we hosted this long and beautiful lounge that had floor-to-ceiling curtains, couches and dim lighting for a relaxing atmosphere.
If you missed the fashion presentations, you also missed seeing the hosts we hired to run the shows. Susan Manuella, former Broncos cheerleader and Miss Colorado USA, hosted on Wednesday and Sunday. FOX31’s Meaghan Mooney hosted on Saturday, and the “Everyday” show’s Chris Parente was a fan-favorite on Thursday.
Ducati and Fox Head
Ducati and Fox Head headlined the second segment of night two on Thursday, April 30. They showed off this season’s hottest looks with leather jackets and motorcycle helmets for Ducati, and swimwear, T-shirts and dresses for Fox Head. Ducati even had motorcycles throughout the building each night.
The Local Designers Segment
On Saturday, May 2, the local designers segment was dedicated to local fashion design. It boasted looks by locals Mona Lucero and Rachel Marie Hurst – both of which are talented and showed off trendy collections. Whorl Shop also presented in this first segment and is a boutique down in LoHi.
Scotch & Soda
International brand Scotch & Soda took the entire second segment on Saturday, May 2. This brand is originally from Amsterdam and presented 35 men’s and women’s looks.
The Hair Show
The Hair Show rounded out the entire event on Sunday, May 3. This infamous night was all about costumes, makeup and that wild hair. 14 participants worked for hours preparing their models and the presentations were big, wild and worth the wait.
