For Justice Kwesi Kwarteng, Colorado Fashion Week has been largely a labor of love -- and hard work. Inspired by Fern Mallis, the former executive director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America and founder of 7th on Sixth Productions, since 2011 CFW has focused on building an economically sustainable fashion industry in Colorado. And to push that goal, before this fall's Colorado Fashion Week, Karteng will present CFW's first annual Preview Fashion Market & Fundraiser Showcase on Thursday, July 31.

When Marie-­Juliette Bird made her way to London more than a decade ago, her original mission was work on music. But after unexpectedly crossing paths with celebrated jeweler David Courts, Bird's course changed forever. She returned to the states a few years ago as a jewelry maker after having spent that tiem learning from the master craftsman, and in 2012 she launched her own line, Blackbird and the Snow.

This Saturday, July 12, Highland boutique Goldyn will host the Blackbird and the Snow trunk show, a display and sale of Bird's carefully crafted accessory line.
