Meet one of the 2017 Paper Fashion Show judges, Brandi Shigley, as she shares her perspective on the Paper Fashion Show and why she wants to be involved.
1. Why do you want to be a part of this year’s Paper Fashion show? I was a judge at the Paper Fashion Show back in 2007 at the Oriental Theater and again in 2014. Every year it gets better and better and I look forward to see how this year will top off the past few years!
2. How do you think your opinion as a judge will be beneficial? I hope that I am able to have an eye open for creativity and innovation. As somebody who started out my handbag career in 3rd grade making paper purses, I have a passion for paper and seeing how it is utilized.
3. This show is all about the arts, tell me how you relate/contribute to the arts? Fashion is an art form and our body is our canvas. I like to think that what I choose to wear daily is my contribution to the expression of creative and artistic expression.
Brandi is the founder of Fashion Denver and VP of marketing for Bradley Allen, a company that designs dress apparel for the athletic male body. Her passion is turning dreamers into doers and serving the community in whatever way can to continue to spread hope and love. Shigley can be found rollerskating, making music, and doing random acts of harmless shenanigans.
Fashion Denver was established in 2004 as a way to connect our local designers, boutiques, and stylists to fashion lovers in Colorado. Through the production of our seasonal fashion markets, fashion events, fashion camps, and business development, our passion continues to grow as we see more and more designers and boutiques shining in Denver.
