Urban Nights will celebrate Denver fashion -- and raise money for Urban Peak

The second Urban Nights Fashion Show is a "runway with a reason." The event promises to not only be a great fashion celebration featuring some of Denver's best boutiques and designers (including Project Runway's Mondo Guerra) but to raise a lot of money for Urban Peak, a non-profit organization that provides a wide range of services for youth who are homeless or at risk. In advance of Friday night's festivities, we spoke with both creative director Dahlia Weinstein and Kim Easton, the executive director of Urban Peak, about how fashion can play a role in helping homeless youth.
