We spoke with Jeff Trujillo, Colorado AIDS Project manager of marketing and events in advance of the show -- which takes place Sunday, November 30, at Exdo Event Center -- to find out what makes this fashion show so unique and what surprises are in store for guests.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Damon Redd started Kind Design back in 2008, but last year Mother Nature threatened to end his clothing line. "I never in a million years expected to wake up and find my business under five feet of water and mud in Boulder, Colorado. All of my family and friends rallied behind me to help clean up the mess. It was a truly humbling experience," says Redd. Now he's partnering with The Cotery to release a line of Colorado-themed leggings for ladies that both celebrate and help the environment that almost did in his business.

The start of Dillon Morton's clothing company, Fake Diamonds, came in 2009, "when I first learned to convert an art piece of mine in photoshop to have screen-printed on a shirt," he recalls. "After I was able to sell those initial twelve shirts, I went for it and designed about five other shirts and worked with a close friend of mine, Mike Pack, to create a website and Lookbook.

"From there, the goal was to continue learning and pushing what we could do with each collection we released," Morton explains. And tonight he'll relaunch Fake Diamonds with a pop-up shop at Love Gallery.

The iconic Ava style launched the Kork-Ease craze in the 1960s.
Kork-Ease platform shoes -- particularly the iconic Ava style -- became wildly popular in the United States in the 1960s, "at the time when everything was colliding in this country," explains Kathy Teter, the event's media representative. "It was the beginning of the youth cultural movement, and everything was happening at the same time."
