Color Shock celebrates color and couture at the TACTile Textile Art Center

Categories: Fashion, Style

The Yves Saint Laurent spectacular has come and gone from the Denver Art Museum, but its inspiration -- a renewed appreciation for the craft, creativity and sheer beauty of high couture -- stays on, especially within the local design community.

The value of that exhibition certainly wasn't lost on Dianne Denholm of the TACtile Textile Arts Center, a woman who's dedicated her career to furthering the textile arts -- and a winner of a 2012 MasterMind award.

By Denholm's own admission, YSL had a turn-around effect on the way she's curating her gallery space and in turn inspired tomorrow's Color Shock fashion show at TACtile. A hue-heavy showcase for local designers, the runway will catch fire at 7 p.m., following a meet-and-greet reception at 6 p.m.

Think Vivian Westwood, Diane Von Furstenberg, Prada and, of course YSL, all of whom revel(ed) in color, and prepare to put on your shades for this one.

Admission is $3 to $5; e-mail TACtile or call 720-524-8886 for reservations and information.
