Denver's best in paper fashion returns to the runway

DENVER - If a fashion show with models draped in "typical" fabric like cotton and silk isn’t for you, then you need to check out the annual Paper Fashion Show this Thursday.

The runway show is organized by the Art Director’s Club of Denver (ADCD), and it’s the largest Paper Fashion Show in the nation.

In its 13th year, the designs are expected to be bigger and better than ever.  

The runway show is different because it incorporates dance performance along with fashion. This year’s event will showcase The Thomas Dance Project featuring the Colorado Ballet.

Not only will people get to see fantastic displays of paper garments, it also supports the Downtown Aurora Visual Arts, which houses community-based arts education programs for at-risk youth.

According to the ADCD’s website, the first Paper Fashion Show was held at Cervantes Ballroom in 2005, and was hosted by drag-queen comedians. There were 25 designs modeled in the show that year, and it has only grown since.

This year’s event will take place Thursday, April 6 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Seawell Ballroom. Show starts at 7:30 p.m.
