This year, 54 design teams will be showcasing fashions from paper donated by Neenah Paper, Mohawk, CTI Paper USA, French Paper Distributors and coordinated by Spicers Paper.These fashions are showcased at the runway show and voted on by a panel of eight judges, whom are top Denver-area designers.
"We believe art brings our communities together," said Michael Garcia, Paper Fashion Show event co-manager.
