We are very excited to participate in the 9th annual Prêt-à-Porter Fashion Show held each fall in Denver. During the past decade Prêt-a-Porter has established itself as Denver's main stage event for creative and inspiring design.
In the runway, leading Architecture/ Interior design firms and students showcase garments crafted with a diverse range of interior finishes and raw material generally used in construction. Garments need to be comprised of at least 80% of that manufacturer's product and will be judged based on creativity, craftsmanship, wear ability, use of sustainable products and model presence on the runway.
Women In Design is honored and very excited to be paired with Ad Light+Sign, a team of talented custom lighting designers and fabricators.
This year’s theme is Art Deco which translates to bold geometric shapes, symmetry, vertical lines and at times, lavish ornamentation.
The event is organized by the Rocky Mountain Chapter of IIDA and is held at the stunning Ellie Caulkins Opera Theater. Be sure to save the date of September 13th for the fashion show to come out and see WiD and other design firm’s creations!

Women in Design, Denver! Denver City Agency, Arts and Venues, launches a plan to update Denver’s cultural plan. We are inviting WiD membership to participate in the drafting of IMAGINE DENVER 2020. As professionals, participants, and aficionados of the built environment, your feedback and voice is welcomed and critical.
What makes a city great? Some would say, at the top of that list are accessible and affordable cultural events and activities.
The nations most successful cities rely on a civic cultural plan to find out the most efficient way to provide that. A 1989 cultural plan has resulted in a number of long-term changes that have benefited the arts. By documenting the thoughts and input of Denverites, Imagine Denver 2020 will inform an effort to provide resources and collaborative efforts to support arts and culture in our city going forward.
If we had 7 years to turn Denver into a booming cultural landmark (by year 2020), would you take pride in saying that you helped to accomplish that? The Imagine Denver 2020 project is a development effort designed to give Denver a renewed sense of direction in the promotion of art, culture and creativity.
As builders of community, we ask Women in Design members, to be at the frontlines to help shape and build a better and more culturally expressive community for Denver. Whether you feel that the cultural experiences in Denver are sufficient or drastically need improvement, we want to hear what you have to say.
Visit the website at http://www.ImagineDenver2020.org for more information on their cause and a list of events and free museum dates. Please take the SURVEY and spread the Word. This is your opportunity to have a voice in this civic cultural plan and then join WiD on Facebook for a discussion.
