Denver Fashion Industry Summit

On the evening of July 15th, Darlene C. Ritz, RMCAD Fashion Design Chair; Hannah Smith, Fashion Account Executive; Megan Timlin, Owner/Founder of Whorl Shop; and 5280 Magazine hosted an informal round table Denver Fashion Industry summit. These key members of the Denver Fashion Community came together to discuss the needs of the Denver industry and answer the question: “What do you think the Denver Fashion Industry needs in order to become an economic hub?”

The summit worked around ten survey questions and discussion of the challenges facing the Denver Fashion Community—ranging from media representation to manufacturing accessibility. Information from the summit is being synthesized; the group has agreed to reconvene and establish action items to further galvanize the industry, moving Denver towards the forefront as a location for great fashion.
