Local Designer Spotlight: Kelli Modica

Kelli Modica, our local designer for this week, has only been in Denver for about seven months but she's already created some impressive and original fashion with the help of The Other Side Arts complex, which we mentioned in this profile of designer Jonathan Applegate.

Kelli's designs for her lable, Captured Ink, are screenprints created from modified pictures taken during her adventures traveling and teaching in South Korea.

“I was selling flat prints of some of these photos, and I thought that I could make them more interesting by putting them on shirts,” she says.
