The Lowdown: Showcased on the Bank of America runway, Urban Nights is back this summer to reclaim its title as Colorado’s largest outdoor fashion show, spotlighting local and international designers. This year’s show, with the theme Threads of Promise, will be designed and produced by Jenny Baker-Strasburg’s team at JBS Consulting a la Mode and supported by Tobie Orr Productions. Highlighting designs from The Art Institute of Colorado, Wilhelmina Denver, Suit Supply and Nicholas K, we are so excited to see some local creatives show off their beautiful work. One of the most unique things about this production is the hip-hop infusion of the legendary lyricists, Salt-N-Pepa, who will bring the show to a unforgettable close. The live auction taking place will benefit Denver’s at-risk youth.
