I attended the 2017 Denver Paper Fashion Show put on by the Art Directors Club of Denver on April 6. It was an event that I’ve wanted to attend for awhile and the stars aligned this year.
I went as the press rep for Sew News, which allowed me great access for photos.This event supports Downtown Aurora Visual Arts (DAV), a local community organization that provides after-school arts programs for urban youth ages 3 to 17. Their mission is to strengthen the community through the art. This event is judged by local Denver business owners, artists and community leaders. Teams compete for 1, 2 and 3 place and DAVA Choice, Star Student and Art Directors Spirit Award. For more information on DAVA please go to www.davarts.org and to see past Paper Fashion Shows head to ADCD.com.
There were 40 entries this year, in order to keep this post from becoming too photo heavy I’ll show you the entries in two posts.
I believe most are in order, but there may have been a line up change and I may have some mislabeled. Send in any corrections via the comments section and I’ll correct.
More to come!
