SIA Recreates Mountain Lodge Setting for Stylish Opening Event
Washington, DC (January 9, 2013) — On Wednesday, January 30th, the eve of the 2013 SIA Snow Show (Jan. 31-Feb. 3), SIA will host its annual Snow Fashion & Trends Show acting as the official opening event and “Welcome to Denver” party for Snow Show Attendees.
The Colorado Convention Center’s Mile High Ball Room will be transformed into a classic mountain lodge replete with stone fireplace, perfect for the snow sports industry to mix, mingle and enjoy a cocktail while previewing apparel collections for Winter 2013/14.
“With the Snow Fashion & Trends Show scheduled for the day before the Snow Show, we wanted to create a party atmosphere, welcome everyone to Denver and set the mood for the rest of the Show,” commented David Ingemie, SIA’s President. “This will be a great first stop to catch-up with industry friends before hitting the ground running the next day,” added Ingemie.
Multiple cocktail lounges and a live DJ will properly set the mood of the event, while models work the runway and a multi-media video presentation acts as a backdrop. Throughout the evening, SIA’s partners from Stylesight, NYC-based trend forecasters, will provide commentary on major trends and color stories for the upcoming season.
At the event, Mike West, Founder of 686, will take the stage to introduce the newest set of designers competing in the RECLAIM Project during the Snow Show. RECLAIM Project challenges three designers to create a garment from reclaimed 686 production facility materials, the two winning designers receive an internship at 686.
