That elusive Denver style, as created by both fledgling and established local designers, gets a big thumbs-up tonight at the Metro Fashion Association Fashion Show, hosted by a new student organization at Metropolitan State College intent on putting our town on the national fashion map. The display will include designs by Metro student stitcher Mercedes Hartman, as well as Eyecandywear -- a line created by EYECANDYMAG founders Laurie Scavo and Ray Romero -- and just about everything in between. They'll be in the spotlight beginning at 7 p.m. in the Tivoli Turnhalle, Ninth Street and Auraria Parkway on the Auraria campus. Admission is free, but $5 donations for the Rape Assistance and Awareness Program will gladly be accepted; for information, call 720-839-0975 or visit www.metrofashionassociation.com.
