The world of fashion is an exciting, fast paced industry full of beautiful models, gorgeous clothes and lavish parties. But it is also a highly competitive community that can be tough to break into. Lucky for aspiring designers, there are people like Fallene Wells in this trendy society that look to help others who are also trying to make the cut in the world of fashion. Wells is a fashion designer and hair stylist in Denver, Colorado who has been in the industry for ten years. Her career is on the rise and this year she even landed a spot as a contestant on Project Runway Season 9. She is also the producer and organizer of the Forever Darling Fashion Show, an annual event that showcases her clothing line, as well as fashions from other local designers.
Wells describes the Forever Darling show, now in it's fourth year, as a “fashion event that helps promote local designers, artists, models, hairdressers, and small businesses. In a nutshell it’s an amazing event that supports the creative professional community in Denver.” The September 30, 2011 show is expected to draw 300-400 attendees. Wells couldn’t be happier with the growth of the show, “I'm very excited for this year, I want to use my experience from Project Runway Season 9 and show the audience what real design is all about. We have eleven eclectic local designers, including myself, showcasing fall collections of ten pieces each.”
The fundraising goal for this year’s show is to raise about $5,000 with the net proceeds from ticket sales. There will also be a silent auction that will benefit the Denver Design Incubator, an organization that helps designers produce a clothing line from sketch to production. “I'm very happy to have Denver Design Incubator as our non-profit. They are a new establishment and I'm so happy we can help raise money to have them expand” says Wells.
Guests will gather at this event for fundraising and fashion and enjoy the evening’s festivities in a fun roaring 20’s theme. Attendees will get to enjoy the musical styling of GigMasters’ 5-Star swing band, After Midnight (Highlands Ranch, Colorado). Professional dancers will also accompany the live rag time jazz music and guests are encouraged to come dressed in roaring 1920’s garb.
What could be better than an awesome themed event, listening to a great GigMasters band and partying for a good cause? To learn more about the Forever Darling Fashion Show or to purchase your tickets please visit: www.foreverdarling.org.
