100 Colorado Creatives: Tricia Hoke

#7: Tricia Hoke

Tricia Hoke is first and foremost an artist, but hers is an artistry that translates into the folds and drapes of her ingenious clothing designs, which morph into different style configurations with the slightest inside-out turn or flip of fluid fabric. As a dance costumer, she's unparalleled, and the 2011 Westword MasterMind in fashion is also a seasoned businesswoman who now shares her expertise with clients and fellow designers via her company, Pie Apparel. A key organizer with Lisa Ramfjord Elstun in the formation of a Denver Fashion Design Center, where she hopes to move her studio, Hoke has found her niche in the local scene, while remaining one of that scene's greatest backers.

How does she do it? Let Tricia Hoke's 100CC questionnaire shed some light.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
