Mondo Guerra is just one of the stars of Denver Fashion Weekend Spring/Summer 2013

As the snow melts away, every young fashionista's thoughts turn to flirty frocks, bare shoulders and fabulous hair. And those are just a few of the things you'll see showcased at 303 Magazine's Denver Fashion Weekend Spring/Summer 2013, which takes over City Hall this weekend. Hometown fashion hero Mondo Guerra will be in the hall, too, to present his spring/summer collection.

It all kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 11, with a live body-art exhibition inspired by the images of Georgia O'Keeffe, whose work is on view at the Denver Art Museum through the end of April. A short local-designer showcase at 9 p.m. will lead into Guerra's show; New York designer Geoffrey Mac follows at 10 p.m.

Denver Fashion Weekend then picks up on Saturday, April 13, for the popular 303 hair show featuring eight local salons, which will unfurl in two parts, at 9:30 and 10:30 p.m., also with an O'Keeffe theme focusing on the painter's color palette. An after-party follows at the Living Room. That's a lot of fun and fashion.
