Barrera International – Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection Preview

I need to tell you what I’ve been working on.

Guess who will be representing First Class Fashionista this Thursday? (Because you’ll never guess, here, on *my* blog…)

Alright, it’s me! ^0^ I will be at the Barrera International Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection Preview down in the Santa Fe Art Districts, dolled up and ready to cover the event for everyone who has an interest in fashion, especially locally.

This Thursday will be an amazing fashion event not to be missed; we here in Denver should feel privileged to host this show.

Join fashionistas, fashion industry professionals, and other fashion-enthusiasts in a night previewing the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection of Juan Jimenez. Jimenez, only 22 (youth in vogue!) , is the designer at the helm of Berrera International. He recently graduated from Johnson & Whales and has interned at Tom Ford. I don’t normally do quote-for-quote from websites, but I love this:

“Every piece in the collection has been cut, assembled, stitched and sewn by hand to achieve perfection. From luxurious evening gowns to simple staple pieces, be sure to find a wide selection of items to covet. The beauty of this and every Barrera collection will be the availability to customize every look and make each piece unique.”
-Barrera International.

Berrera International throws out the power words “luxury, character & exclusivity”. What woman doesn’t want to be described in those terms?!

Those attending will be privy to the first glance at his Asia-meets-French-Couture collection, as well as formally introducing the designer’s Menswear collection and the newest pieces in the Barrera International’s Ready to Wear and Couture concepts.

So. My local people all need to be there. Seriously.

It’s going to be down in the Santa Fe Art District, specifically the Space Gallery (765 Santa Fe Dr, Denver, CO 80204), and doors are at 9 PM. Unless you go for broke and get a VIP ticket. They *are* a little costly, but you get a lot for your money.  Plus, who doesn’t want to feel like a red-carpet celeb for a night? (PS. I will be there getting mingly with the VIPs; black tie, camera, iPad recording software. I’m techno-chic.)

Doors are at 8 PM for  and hour of VIP reception. With that, you get includes a Latin/Asian fusion menu and specialty themed cocktails, private parking, and front row seating.

Black tie attire is mandatory. (But really, how often do you get to wear black tie? I’m excited!)

General Admission is $25; VIP is $100 for 2 guests.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit SafeHouse Denver, serving victims of domestic violence and their children since 1977.

If you’re still unsure, I suggest you watch this video, taken last year by the First Class Fashionista team (now I’m on the team! Yay!), to get a feel for what’s gonna go down in D-town.

  1. So was it just me, or does Black Tie mean something different here in Colorado than it does everywhere else? I thought it meant tuxes for the guys, and long dresses for the women. You and I were dressed appropriately, but I don’t think Juan was in a tux!

    • Ah! So nice to hear from you again! 😉
      And I was thinking about the same thing… Colorado means dressy-esque, I think. I’m glad I opted for the blazer and not pearls!
      Hopefully in the future these limits will be more well-defined. “Almost-black-tie”. “Or wear-your-updated-version-of-prom dress clothes”. ;p

      • Ironic that it was a fashion event that didn’t seem to follow fashion conventions! I should have known since it’s Colorado! But everybody looked great, and the fashions were lovely.
