“...you are the reason Denver Style Magazine celebrated our First Birthday in January. Thank you.” The mission to be Denver’s fashion, style, and beauty resource is at the core of every entrepreneur we meet with, image we post, event we host, and the astounding growth of Denver Style Magazine’s local following, readership, and turnout at local events gives us every reason to keep producing. So we will. In this issue we introduce you to stylish natives and local residents that have their finger on the pulse of Denver’s style scene including Denver’s First Lady, Mary Louise Lee. The sassy firecracker keeps it classy for city events, but always stays true to her personal style.

Remnants of the Wild West and and industry manufacturing can still be seen in the facades of buildings around Denver and to the west, but business are occupying vintage spaces in modern ways to produce merchandise that makes its way around the world. Issue number four takes a deeper look into the products generated in Denver and the people producing them. With the expansion of transportation outside of Denver, the opportunity to discover, explore, and shop at local boutiques, salons, and studios is becoming a lot more accessible making our little big city a lot less small town and much more metropolitan. The resources available to our residents, experiences available to our visitors, and adventure that awaits continues to attract the young and mature creating a melting pot of beautiful styles and unique characters that we look forward to celebrating for many more years to come.

DENVER GENERATED PRODUCTION
How the design and production industry within the Mile High City are keeping true to their roots. Written by Jordan Jackson
As our growing mecca continues to make waves in the fashion and makers markets, more and more companies have committed to consciously designing and producing right here in Colorado. These pioneers within the industry are not only bringing quality clothing, accessories and items to local shoppers; they are spear-heading the economy within the style commerce, providing industry-specific opportunities and unique resources within our landlocked state.
While commendable, there are certainly challenges. As any innovator will note, going against the norm isn’t necessarily the easier path. However, through commitment to valued results and the drive to put Denver on the map, these five entrepreneurs give us insight into why creation in-house and more importantly, in-state, is the optimum way to get quality goods in the hands of Colorado’s savvy consumers locally and around the world.
DEN V E R D E SIGN I NC UB ATOR Located in the downtown neighborhood, Denver Design Incubator (DDI) is on a quest

Creative people thrive in Denver. The DDI is a perfect match for our slew of crafters, storytellers, and makers who continuously have their hands in a number of arenas. DDI helps hone these creative innovations, bringing each of them to fruition. In a city that is filled with movers and shakers, there was a need for added workshops, shared spaces, and most importantly, mentors. City dwellers are welcome to tap into this resource, building upon an already established fashion knowledge base, taking their craft to the level of a successful business enterprise.

Being in Colorado is important to Mile High WorkShop. They are enthusiastic about building a manufacturing industry within our home state, not only to create jobs and skills for members of our community, but to also add intrinsic value and pride to the products coming from our local manufactures. And why not? Colorado is an active lifestyle brand in itself. What’s better than an item made by Coloradans, for Coloradans, and in Colorado?

Which just might be why creation in Colorado is so key. The designer has her hands and eyes on each piece throughout the entire process.

As plain as it is to see, community comes first. Working in Colorado has always been top priority to Topo Designs. A big part of why the business began was to build a brand based upon where they live and how they go about making things. The close proximity to production also allows for regular face time and a very hands-on process,

WINTER SESSION “Home Sweet Home” is a phrase that runs deep for the faces behind Winter Session. Presented with the choice to relocate elsewhere in the city of Chicago or make the big move across the country back to their home state, the husband and wife team took a leap of faith and moved their functional, high quality, unisex canvas, and leather carry goods to Colorado. At that time their production outfit was small, allowing for flexibility to plant roots just about anywhere. Winter Session chose Denver because of their established connections in the city and to take advantage of the resources and infrastructure that the community had to offer.
When asked how important producing in Colorado is to their company, co-owner Tanya Fleisher responded, “Although our brand has its own identity that is not dependent on our location, being based in Colorado (and specifically Denver) has certainly helped to define the way we talk about our products and the visual representation of our brand. We are inspired by the active, dynamic lifestyle that exists here and in turn, we try to design our products to fit this lifestyle — one that is balanced between work and play, home life and travel, city life and mountain adventure.”
Luckily for their brand, not many obstacles stand in their way. Winter Session has much praise for the team at Ralph’s Sewing where they frequently source machines, parts, and sewing notions. They currently make everything in house and humorously note that the biggest craving they face is getting outside in the sunshine instead of staying in to work. But let’s face it, that might just be true for everyone living in this gorgeous place.
It takes notable courage to choose the path less travelled, but as demonstrated by this select group of Colorado companies the journey and final product definitely make the hardships worth while. This is an exciting time for creators and innovators across the city in art, design, and especially the revival of small-scale manufacturing. The industry revolution is among us; it is the perfect time to purchase Colorado made.

Mary Louise Lee: Colorado native, long-time actor, accomplished musician, and Denver’s very own First Lady. Denver Style Magazine sat down with the fervent woman on top to get the scoop on her favorite things in the Mile High City, how she develops her personal style, and the many ways she’s improving our local arts. HAIR AND MAKEUP: ASHLEY SMITH, @ASHLEYSMITHBEAUTY WRITTEN BY JORDAN JACKSON, @DENVERSHEWROTE
DSM: You have lived in Denver your entire life. How has the neighborhood you grew up in changed?
MLL: Yes, I grew up in Walnut Hill near 30th and Milwaukee, not far from City Park. People may not call it that anymore, but it is Walnut Hill to me. The neighborhood has changed a lot over the years, Colfax has improved and new stores and restaurants are popping up all of the time. But, one of my favorites is still over there, Welton Street Café. The city as a whole has changed and we just keep moving. More working opportunities are going to be humongous for the economy with more and more large companies coming here. Even culturally and in the arts, Denver is growing. DSM: What neighborhood do you believe will see improvement next?
MLL: I think there will be big growth in Globeville, it’s just time. The community needs improvement and it’s so close to downtown. I
I also wear suits. And of course there are the dinners where I get to wear gowns, but even then, I still have to be me. As a performer, it’s very flashy, very big. I have performance hair; you can catch me with a long ponytail on stage. I am also all about wearing big pieces of jewelry. I love bracelets and statement rings. I also feel sexiest in clothing that drapes and goes off of the shoulder. When I am performing, I wear anyhing that flows nicely on my body. That makes me feel sexiest. And finally, when I am a mom, it’s sweats all the way. I am in sweats probably the majority of my life, which I enjoy. I like being in t-shirts and baseball caps. DSM: Now that we know your different styles, what are some of the different things your family likes to do together?
MLL: Honestly, we just love to be at home. My children are performers in their own areas, so we are all busy. With crazy schedules, it is just nice to spend time with one another, laughing together.
would love to see a grocery store in that area. DSM: What about dining out? Where are your DSM: You mentioned that Denver’s fine arts are growing also, would you like to talk a little bit about that?
MLL: Absolutely. I am an ambassador for the arts, but I am really an ambassador for local arts. We have to grow our own here. That’s one reason I started the foundation (Bringing Back the Arts), to enhance our kids through the arts. Even if they don’t make it a career, I want them to know about it and appreciate it. Everywhere I go I tell people about our city’s art programs and opportunities. From our museums, galleries, the Performing Arts Complex and even the little bitty theatres that we have all around town, there is just so much. DSM: How is your foundation, Bringing Back the Arts, providing specific opportunities for Denver kids?
MLL: Our arts, our cultural community in Denver, it’s gotten so big and I am proud to be a part of that. The Bringing Back the Arts Foundation is my mission to restore art programs in Denver Public Schools. We even have an internship program that gives high school students opportunities that they may not have been offered before, or even had in their schools at all. We want to give them the training they need. Together, interns and intern sponsors who participate in the Bringing Back the Arts internship program will help pave the path to the growing local creative economy. DSM: What further avenues would you like to explore within your foundation?
MLL: I would really like to provide training and art classes in local rec centers just to reach more kids. We want this to be accessible for everyone. DSM: In addition to leading your foundation, you also wear many other hats. How does your personal style change from Mary Louise Lee the performer to being a mother and also Denver’s First Lady?
MLL: When I am First Lady I don’t consider myself conservative, but I do style myself to look classic, yet sexy. When I am at a function I will tone back the jewelry and opt for some pearls,
favorites spots in Denver?
MLL: Ocean Prime. It is one of my favorite restaurants. That’s a good date night place for Michael and I too. Like I said, we both have funky schedules, but that’s one place we love. I also love El Noa Noa on Santa Fe. DSM: We are also eager to know about your shopping habits. Where does Denver’s First Lady go for some retail therapy?
MLL: I should just say Denver, because I love to shop and I really do shop all over. But, if I had to choose, I would say Northfield is one spot that I really love. Great shops and a great nightlife; there’s just so many options. DSM: We also know that you have deep roots at the Denver Performing Arts Complex and that you adore this cultural icon. What are you most excited about for the proposed changes happening there?
MLL: I am so excited about the opportunities for local artists to do their work in that space, as well as bringing in more awesome entertainment and diversity from around the country to our city. Juggling it all with a sparkling personality and standout style, First Lady Mary Louise Lee is a positive representation of how beautiful confidence can be. In her final remarks during the interview she encouraged the entire Denver community to learn more about her foundation, Bringing Back the Arts, and to visit one of their many student competitions happening throughout the year. She also noted that her favorite feature to flaunt was her smile, another example of just how pleasantly poised she truly is.

Using beads and feathers, craft your own boho accessory to break free from winter’s grasp with DSM’s DIY Contributor Cat Golden Written by: Cat Golden, The Resource Girls,
Photos by: Noah Berg Photography
This time of year has us thinking all things sunny, bright and free. We’re shedding our sweaters, putting away our jackets and looking for any excuse we can find to be outside. It’s safe to say we are definitely embracing our inner flower child and obsessing over all of the hippie inspired fashion we’re seeing everywhere. We’ve noticed hair flair clips popping up at local boutiques and music festivals around town that have us craving a little more of a carefree vibe. If this kind of style makes you a little nervous or you’re wanting to branch out, start by creatinh your own piece of boho flair in six simple steps. Throw some extra hippie love into an everyday look by making your own accessory. We love the idea of being wild and free. Who can’t use more of that in their life? These hair clips remind us that some of the best days are those
“Make this unique, personalized hair accessory for less than ten dollars!” carefree, wind in your hair, nothing scheduled days. So, clip in that bad boy and embrace your day!

MAKE IT YOURSELF What You’ll Need
• Leather Cording: 36” to 48”, Any Color • Feathers of Your Choice • Beads of Your Choice
• Thin Gold Wire • Hair Clip • Hot Glue Gun or Any Kind of Craft Glue
Cut the leather cording in three equal pieces, each 12”-16” in length.
Pop your hair clip open and insert all three pieces of leather cording into the clip. (A little can hang over the top, you will cut this off).
Cut 12” of wire thread and insert through the two holes on the hair clip.
While holding the clip firmly in one hand, tightly wrap your wire around the leather cording until there is no wire left.
Personalize! Add beads or braid your leather cords to make it your own.
Add your last bead and secure a feather to the end of the cord with hot glue. Slide the last bead over the top of the feather to hide any glue residue. Add a little extra glue inside the bead to secure.

SIMPLE UNDERDOG STYLE
Score big with Super Bowl Champ Chris Harris Jr.’s simple style suggestions.
© Max Ralston
Written by Heather Okimoto
Chris Harris Jr. plays a fast game on the field as Cornerback for the Super Bowl 50 Champion Denver Broncos, but keeps his personal style stylishly comfortable off the field. The soon to be dad of two beautiful girls says that he’s lucky to go to work in sweats but always chooses fabrics and materials that feel good against his skin, a fashion standard his mom taught him while growing up. The story of being an Underdog is one that Chris knows well, and through his personal foundation, the Chris Harris Jr. Foundation, he’s able to teach the lessons he’s learned to local kids. Chris strongly believes that
“Every underdog deserves a shot at success.”
Chris hosts a free Underdog Football Skills Academy in Denver while taking the time to talk about the ups and downs in life and connecting with local youth. Football is all about being part of a team and when asked what piece of the uniform makes him feel most part of the Broncos, Chris resolutely explained,
“When you put on the helmet with the Bronco, it’s about everyone coming together , playing for one helmet.” While Chris plans on saving his Super Bowl ring for special nights out in silky shirts, his AFC Championship ring is the perfect accessory for an everyday look. When he’s not in sweats or on the field, Chris says that “being well dressed is very important no matter where you go. It makes you feel good and like you’re going to get something done.” Chris Harris Jr. Foundation www.chrisharrisjr.com/foundation

Prep your bike and update your look with these pedal ready tips from DSM’s Teen Contributor, Penn Beldock. Written by Penn Beldock, teenfashiontakeover.com,
Photos by Noah Berg Photography, noahbergphotography.com,
Spring is here and it’s time to cruise around town. I pulled my bicycle, ‘White Lightning,’ out of the garage and picked up the tips to getting ready to ride. Pedal preparation is key and Gregory at Chocolate Spokes in RiNo, suggests checking your ride for all the little details to ensure your safety on the road.
• Tire Inflation
• Chain Lubrication • Adequate Safety Lighting • Bolt Tightness
Now that your ride is ready, it’s time to get yourself looking good too. Mix and match indigo colors and shapes to create a layered look that can easily transition on and off your bike. Break up the blue on blue by adding a patterned shirt or
bright colored accessories
“Create a stylish and comfy ensemble by jumping into spring’s fashionable trend, denim.” Ride around with some key accesories to personalize your look. Throw in a small cross body bag so you aren’t lugging around a heavy backpack everywhere you go. Chicly protect your eyes and wear a watch to make sure you’re not late for your very important date.
“Pack all the necessities and keep things neat in a bike-ready bag.” - Penn Beldock, DSM Teen Fashion Contributor teenfashiontakeover.com
