Aspen International Fashion Week a hit
To the delight of fashionistas from near and far, Aspen International Fashion Week hit the runway from March 13 to Sunday. With an open-air Apres-Ski Stage located downtown, the hottest new trends in outerwear, performance skiwear and luxury fur were shown by designers Dennis Basso, A Perfect Moment, Columbia, Gorski, PolarMax, Mountain Hides, ALR Style Tribe, Helly Hansen and Obermeyer.
Aspen boutiques including Yves Saloman, J Crew, Kate Spade, L’Occitane, Jitrois, Covet, Harmony Scott Jewelry Design, Surefoot and Sunglass Hut hosted in-store events in the evenings.
As the closing event of the weekend, the Black & White Ball at the Caribou Club served as a benefit for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Guests dressed in formal attire, many embracing the masquerade theme, enjoying light bites, cocktails, a silent auction and beats by resident DJ Folami. Colections from One Moon, Jitrois and Pilar Tarrau were also on display.
Overall, Aspen International Fashion Week was a great success. According to Brooke Fogg, the president of Aspen International Fashion Week, “We had an incredible yet diverse collection of designers this year, which drew a broad range of celebrities, socialites and Aspen influencers and tastemakers to the event.
“Also, I’m extremely proud to say that we helped generate business for many of our designers as their collections that were shown here will now be carried in retail stores in Aspen. We’re already working on making Aspen International Fashion Week 2015 bigger and better.”
