- What makes Denver unique within high fashion?
It’s come a long way since the 1990’s, when I first went to a Nuggets game I couldn’t believe the denim! I came from California, it’s more laid back like the East Coast,but Denver has come a long way. If I have to depend on just a Denver market then I would be out of business. I can’t depend on just Denver because we’re behind on some fashion but they are catching up. I encourage people to go to the East or West Coast if you want to make a career out of that.
- Have you appeared in any fashion shows after opening?
Yes, Cynthia Petrus is in charge of curating my shows. Our latest show was a charity event in August and the next one will be again in August at the Centennial Airport called Flight to Luxury.
- Have you noticed the rise in urban street wear merging with high end fashion?
“The youth has a huge voice with their buying power.”
I don’t really follow that. I know the younger generation is more conscience about clothing than ever before and they’re spending so much on clothes. The youth has a huge voice with their buying power.
4.Would you introduce young upcoming designers to your store?
I’m always looking for upcoming designers. Just last fall I bought pocket squares called Flair & Square. I like giving people that are new a shot but only if it fits my clientele, If not I would guide them to stores that have that specific clientele.
I don’t know many places that carry high end designers but many carry a lot of smaller rising designers since they’ve had a bigger impact on the market.
