Sunshiny fashion entrepreneur Brandy Shigley has made a name for herself not only for promoting Denver designers, but also for producing an ongoing series of seasonal fashion markets where its easy to pick up unique clothing and accessories, direct from the source. But her move to Taxi, 3455 Ringsby Court, as a venue for the markets seems to have raised the bar on whats become Shigleys trademark event; the RiNo design center is cool, hip and urban, with the added resources of a great restaurant (Fuel Cafe) and a built-in trendy community.
The Fashion Denver Holiday Market, then, promises to be all that and more: Not only will there be wares from twenty local designers, including some new ones for Shigley, but youll also be able to sit for a mini-manicure and holiday-ready makeover by Tootsies, enjoy bubbly from Hpnotiq, watch ongoing Parisian-style runway shows, pray for one of two $100 gift cards up for grabs for a couple of lucky winners, or sneak around the corner to the Goldyn fashion showroom in Taxi II. Oh, and Shigley even promises the moon: A hipster Santa will also make the scene.
Attend the market from $10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; go to www.fashiondenver.com for details.
