Since the beginning of Denver Fashion Weekend 10 years ago, DFW has become the largest fashion showcase in the Mile High. For one weekend in the spring and fall, Denver’s best designers, models and salons came together to showcase their designs to the Denver community. And each season proved to better than the last; more models, more designers and more attendance. A weekend was no longer enough.

As of Spring 2018, Denver Fashion Weekend will officially become Denver Fashion Week, dedicating a whole week to Denver’s fashion industry and influencers.
The week-long event will also be part of an official partnership with the City of Denver.
“We recognize Denver Fashion Week as a well-primed step in supporting our fast-growing fashion industry in Denver and Colorado. The diversity of Fashion Week programming and dialog exchange will help to amplify Denver’s reputation for design on a national scale, while continuing to attract the attention of new audiences and growing the fashion industry through career-development,” said Lisa Gedgaudas, Denver Arts & Venues.
Throughout the week, there will be workshops for designers and models, trunk shows with local boutiques, and runway shows ending the week with the Paper Fashion show and our DFW runway shows. This year, we are proud to announce Stevie Boi — an NYC designer known for his work with Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Madonna and more. He will present a brand new, exclusive line on Thursday, March 22 of Denver Fashion Week.
“For a decade, hundreds of designers, stylists, models and volunteers have worked to uplift the Denver fashion scene through DFW. Finally, after several sold-out seasons, we feel the city is ready to embrace an entire week of fashion. We couldn’t be more excited.” – Brittany Werges, managing editor of 303 Magazine.
“We are thrilled to expand our 303 DFW program into Denver Fashion Week. As Denver grows so does this event! We will feature an even wider range of sartorial offerings than ever — from kids clothing to weddings and special occasions to designs straight from NYC and the best local designers. And of course, as always, we will end the week with our signature 303 Hairshow and Southwest Hairstyling Awards — which has become one of the finest independent hair events in the hemisphere. ” – Charlie Price, DFW runway producer.
With the official announcement of Denver Fashion Week comes the official launch of the DFW website – DenverFashionWeek.com. Here, you’ll find everything DFW related, from dates of trunk shows to casting calls, designer applications, blog posts, social media and so much more.
