Camp Christmas Fashion Show

Youth Designers Ages 7-17! 

Factory Fashion is producing a VERY Campy Christmas Fashion Show inside DCPA’s immersive Camp Christmas exhibit at Stanley Marketplace.

Denver Center for Performing Arts presents the season’s quirkiest holiday tradition.

Camp Christmas, is back indoors and returning to its original location, the Stanley Marketplace. We are celebrating November 28, 2023, with a special VERY Camp Christmas REVERSE Fashion Show.

What is Camp Christmas? Handcrafted by Artist and Camp Director Lonnie Hanzon and his band of Denver-based magic makers, Camp Christmas is a dazzling dreamscape. It’s an invitation to come in from the cold and wrap yourself up in the ooey-gooey, eclectic rituals that have brought light to the darkness of winter for thousands of years.  

At Camp, you can leave your worries behind, discover your holiday superpower, pay a visit to Santa, and savor craft cocktails from our Base Camp and Fairy Bars. You can wander through a surreal mashup of nostalgic scenes, scratch your head at playful pun trees, and, most importantly, reconnect with the joy of the season. 

Why are we calling it a REVERSE fashion show? The “Unway” Runway:

No runway? What? At this fashion show, there will not be a traditional runway!

Youth Designers and models will remain stationary inside their chosen zone and instead, our guests walk! As a guest enters the designer’s “unway/runway” to view the designers’ segment. Models will “walk” a makeshift runway within the zone. Designers and models are encouraged to interact with their guests, take photos, and be fully present and fully themed in their environment.

The Youth Fashion Show will take place from 5-6 PM.

The cost for the class is $20 materials fee.

DATES / TIME
Thursdays, Oct. 19th – Nov. 9th / 5PM – 7PM
Duration: 4 weeks

LOCATION
Factory Fashion is located at the Stanley Marketplace.

COST: $20 – All sales are final.
