Come to my talk on 60’s Fashion, “What We Wore”, at History Colorado, Wed April 8th @7:00pm!

60's fashion

Come to my talk on ’60’s fashion! For the first time, at least in a major way, street style influenced high fashion. In turn, high fashion reinterpreted street style and passed it back down. Everyday people wore many of the style trends and consciously used them to convey who they were; what they stood for; their politics; their sexuality; their lifestyle… They even crossed gender lines in a public way. Fashion was both convention and rebellion, the Generation Gap personified. Everyday people looked hip. What did YOU, friends, or family wear back then?

We invite you to bring photos or clothes from that era. A prize will be awarded for whoever brings the best photo or actual clothing or accessory. Think these categories; What’s Your Bag” (for accessories), “Flower Power” (hippie or floral inspiration), “Psychedelic”, “Fickle Finger of Fate” (So bad, it’s good – or a complete fad type of item), or “Sock It To Me” (uber-mod). We’re open – it just needs to be cool, man.

Post your photos here, too! Would love to see what you’ve got in your archives!

Mona at #ArtDenver

ArtDenver 2014 was the very first winter show produced by the Cherry Creek Arts Festival held last weekend at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver. It was something exciting and new for Denver fashion – designers were asked to both present in a fashion show and also had booths in which they were selling their designs. This has been done by others, but this is the first time in such a large space as the Convention Center.

Designers such as Mondo Guerra, Geoffrey Mac, Michael Costello and Justin LeBlanc showed along with Brooks, 50 Dresses and other Denver designers, including me.

Mona Lucero Spring 2014 Dress

Wendy Freeman of Berenice’s Salon used my Spring 2014 dress as a complement to her styling for the first annual Colorado Hairstyling Awards during 303 Magazine’s Denver Fashion Weekend. I used sports numbers and literally turned them on their sides to create a new graphic print. I think it has a kind of Native American feel. Photo by Melanie Watson.
