The new year is here, full of shining new hopes. Every January 1 we resolve to transform into the best version of ourselves, and this year is no exception. If you're determined to look good in 2017, Denver has plenty of events to get you off to a stylish start. Here are the dozen best fashion events in Denver in January, in chronological order.

1. Sip, Spiel and Sew Workshop
6 p.m. Sunday, January 8
Denver Design Incubator
2040 Clay Street

The Denver Design Incubator is hosting a $10 introductory sewing class where you can sip wine and learn basic sewing skills on home or industrial sewing machines, with the goal of making quilts that can be donated to local shelters or the camps at Standing Rock. Bring your own supplies, including a portable machine, if that's what you want to use; the Denver Design Incubator will supply industrial sewing machines, fabric and thread. Other workshops at DDI this month include Draping and Pattern Making, Advanced Industrial Sewing, Fashion Sketching, and a specialty workshop on zippers and button holes.
