What You Missed From the DFW Streetwear Show

Denver Fashion Week presented by Mile High Luxury Real Estate is in full force. On Night Five, local designers Darkm0th IndustryRebellelion, Electric BubblegumStationA Vintage Frame of Mind and Interracial Friends came together to display the most daring streetwear looks Denver has seen to date. While Electric Bubblegum was bright, bubbly and girly, Darkm0th was dark, deep and eerie. There were street style looks everyone in the audience could relate to whether they were in the mood for dark and mysterious, flowy and free, girly and cute or ’90s cool.

Darkm0th Industry

Rebellelion was next on the lineup and was a 180 from the styles displayed by Darkm0th. Earthy tones were celebrated and the audience discovered bright yellow as a new neutral. Tassels and embroidery with tie details to the side brought out the Western theme throughout each style. The first look was the epitome of freedom through a breezy sunny yellow dress with ties at the sides with the model holding a red rose with a white star covering half of her face. “The stars go with the outlaw look but for my other models, I wanted that old Americana tattoo look with heavy blush and eyeliner. It’s an outlaw-slash-flapper girl look. It’s sophisticated with lace but grungy with earthy tones. The braids give a Western look like they have been riding horses all day,” said Madi Hadel.

Electric Bubblegum

Electric Bubblegum brought on the drama with fun kiddie pop music and bubblegum pink — of course — and baby blue throughout the display. Inspired by lip gloss and those liquid glitter phone cases, plastic pieces were filled with liquid glitter creating unique movement and sparkle. Pink pigtails and pastel lipsticks tied the looks together. Hooded plastic vests with glitter shimmering down the runway were quite the statement and brought out an updated Baby Spice vibe. Designer Mariah Hodges’ style is cutesy and girly but also edgy.”I like to use fabrics like plastic that are more new and modern looking. My inspiration was lip gloss. I have this really old sparkly lip gloss kit that my mom bought me when I was little and that’s what inspired this whole collection. I was looking at ’90s toys and a lot of them had jelly and plastic,” said Hodges.


Felicia Benavidez of A Vintage Frame of Mind displayed her vintage vibes throughout each look. White bell bottoms, berets, umbrellas and hoops the size of a fist brought on nostalgia. A brown leather baker hat paired with a mustard yellow suit dress and knee-length heeled cutout boots was a modern take on ’70s style. Geometric prints were a common theme throughout the looks in dresses paired with fishnet tights and mesh tops. Silhouettes took on a new norm with skirts in the front and pants in the back.
