CultureHaus hosts fashionable fun and a Fallene Wells sneak peek at the DAM

CultureHaus, the Denver Art Museum's art-loving social group for young professionals, is always coming up with new ways to have creative fun, such as tonight's Fashion to the MAX, a nod to the end of the DAM's most fashionable summer ever. Though the YSL show is over, his high style -- and the museum's hands-on fashion studio -- linger, and CultureHaus will celebrate style at this fashion-forward fundraiser.

In addition to cocktails and tunes, the Buffalo Exchange will bring out a collection of vintage couture garments to ooh and aah over, and Denver designer Fallene Wells will preview some of the outfits from her locally produced Modern Nouveau fall collection, officially scheduled to debut at tomorrow's Fall Friperie event. The party runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at the DAM. Admission is $25 for CulturHaus members and $40 for nonmembers; visit CultureHaus online for tickets and information on how to join up.

And if you're lucky, there might be a few tickets left for Modern Nouveau: Fall Friperie, Wells's Parisian-style fashion show with a pop-up shop beginning at 6 p.m. Friday at Walker Fine Art. To purchase tickets, $35, visit Fallene's website.
