#7: Tricia Hoke
|Labels for Tricia Hoke's personal clothing line, designed by Josh Wills.|
Tricia Hoke is first and foremost an artist, but hers is an artistry that translates into the folds and drapes of her ingenious clothing designs, which morph into different style configurations with the slightest inside-out turn or flip of fluid fabric. As a dance costumer, she's unparalleled, and the 2011 Westword MasterMind in fashion is also a seasoned businesswoman who now shares her expertise with clients and fellow designers via her company, Pie Apparel. A key organizer with Lisa Ramfjord Elstun in the formation of a Denver Fashion Design Center, where she hopes to move her studio, Hoke has found her niche in the local scene, while remaining one of that scene's greatest backers.
How does she do it? Let Tricia Hoke's 100CC questionnaire shed some light.
