First Look: FashioNation Opens on South Broadway Friday

FashioNation's new location at 1594 South Broadway.
If you were ever a patron of FashioNation's iconic location on 13th Avenue in Capitol Hill, the new store on South Broadway -- which "officially" opens this Friday, October 10 -- should be comfortingly familiar. "If we took a screw down at the old store, it was used here at the new store," says co-owner Pam Italiano.

Pam and her husband and co-owner, Paul Italiano, have been hard at work over the last few weeks, transforming the former Packrat Antiques store into a bigger and better version of their counterculture haven for clothes, accessories and more. Along with their devoted staff, the Italianos brought to the new spot not only FashioNation's entire inventory, but the hardware, racks and even some of the doors and trim from the old location. Pam also built many of the store's fixtures by hand to fit this new and improved version of the classic shop.

Flannel is a fall fashion staple, and this week we have spotted the seventeenth-century textile all over the Denver streets. The fabric once worn by farmers, railroad workers and grunge rockers like Nirvana and Pearl Jam in the '90s remains on trend today. Over the years, flannel has transitioned from being a workman's shirt, built to endure the natural elements, to becoming go-to autumn piece for any Colorado fashionista. Flannel is versatile, durable and warm. Read on to learn how locals rock their flannel and why they like it so much.

"Our brick-and-mortar business is focused on allowing a comfortable and inviting location where shoppers can touch and feel excellent-quality, American-made apparel," says Mark Snipe, owner of Sully & Co., a menswear boutique opening tomorrow at 2443 Elliot Street in up-and-coming Jefferson Park. Snipe is a New Yorker who moved to Denver last October; the name of his place is based on the premise that Sully is Snipe's dog -- and he is the company. The name isn't the only thing that sets Sully & Co. apart from other local stores. The style Snipe is emphasizing here is "Urban Preppy." What is that? See for yourself at the opening reception October 2 -- and keep reading for more details.

Hypatia Studio offers a variety of jewelry all made by 3D printing.
Matt Roesle never thought he would be a jewelry designer. As a mechanical engineer, he set his sights on academic pursuits. It wasn't until he was proposed to his girlfriend that Rosele tried his hand at using 3D printing. "I wanted to make a wedding ring and I wanted something unique, but I didn't have any way to do it," he says. "3D printing was a way I could make the ring I wanted."
