Yay to Denver Fashion Weekend Spring ’17 !
As you all know this was my first time attending the Denver fashion show and I really was not disappointed.
The show took place; March 30, April 1st to the 2nd.
I decided to attend the show on April 1st since I had prior engagements.
Weirdly enough, I assumed I would not make it, due to a serious cold that I was nursing. But the show must go on my friends. After popping enough cold pills I was out of the door.
The Exdo Event Center, was the location and it was a sold out show.
Gates were opened at 7pm. I got there around 8:15pm, and more people were still streaming in. There was adequate space for all.
The bars were just enough, to ensure that you do not stand in line waiting. The lighting, minimalistic decor, music blasting, set the tone for the night.
The show started soon after 10pm. The designers of the night showcased such amazing spring collections that I am excited to have my hands on.
For this day I decided to wear full on African print.
All the clothes I wore were designed by me.
The earrings, were purchased from a vintage store in Denver,my clutch is gifted and the neck pieces are from India.
I was really happy on how I styled the overall look.
This is the first time I have mixed different African fabrics, that have different textures and an entirely different color tone.
I knew it was going to be risky but this blog is called “LETMESHOWYOUDIFFERENT” I had to do it.
I suggest that if you want to do this, find a single element that ties the prints together it could be as significant as an existing color in all the prints. In my case, white seemed to calm all the vibrant prints and merge them well together without making me look mismatched. Your accessories can also help to tie down you varied prints to create a cohesive, fashionable look.
Let me know what you think on miking different prints and if you are able to do it.
The look on the girls faces is priceless
