This weekend: Meet Denver's Top Ten designers at the Denver Style Expo
When this weekend's Denver Style Expo debuts tonight at the Denver Merchandise Mart, there will contests of every kind, from the prestigious Denver Style Awards, which acknowledge the city's top local designers, to a special people's choice award for the best-dressed audience members. But for at least one big expo event, it will be NO contest: Saturday night's Denver's Top Ten Fashion Show will shed the spotlight and shower pure kudos upon the best of the best of the best. Here's a sneak-peek preview of who'll be honored.
Mona Lucero Design Boutique
My motto is "Devotion to Style". I believe that anyone can follow their own style path and express who they are through their own unique style. I can't yet reveal what the models will be wearing for the show, since I may be designing until the last minute!

What I'm showing at DSE is true to my brand Equillibrium's point of view and design aesthetic (which is 100 percent mine). Equillibrium's signature materials and marks add a punch down the Runway through apparel, accessories, and hand bags- showing the range of what the lifestyle brand Equillibrium encompasses. All pieces shown are from "Equillibrium Kustoms"- which is the couture, made to order side of the brand (all patterns and pieces hand made, some hand dyed by myself). Equillibrium's next Ready-to-Wear line (EQVolume III) is targeted to show in August 2011.
Gino Velardi's designs are sophisticated with luxurious fabrics, elegant in classic design and tailoring with an unexpected twist and accessible to many women with a sense of high fashion. His runway selections for the Designer Expo will represent his ideal woman, who is confident, fearless and unapologetically sexy!
