Adam Tinnell and Kate Kershenstein are not advocating the throwing of paving stones yet but they are grade-A advocates of looking great without having to spend yourself your self into bankruptcy (or, worse, complacency.) Their Free Boutique where costs are determined by the customer, not the price tag has been about the only spot in Denver where fancy boys and girls can obtain their fashion-forward threads without having to sell their souls to the gods of mark-up. So thank Guy they are officially moving operations from far-flung Lakewood to the much more centralized Denver Art Gallery at 2516 East Colfax Avenue on March 20.
In celebration, Baily Rose of Illiterate Magazine is helping organize Make Total Destroy, a fashion march down Colfax to assist in breaking down the increasing separation of aesthetics from the citys cultural and geographic landscape. Participants, dressed in their finest found fashion, will start off at the steps of the State Capitol building at 6 p.m., and may hand out Free Boutique wares to the raw Denver masses. Go to www.myspace.com/thefreeboutique for details.
