Aspen International Fashion Week

Aspen is so much more than a ski and sports destination. As Owners at Dancing Bear Aspen already know, this international epicenter reigns supreme both on and off the slopes.

Case and point is Aspen International Fashion Week, running from March 13 through March 16, 2014, and Dancing Bear Aspen gets you close to all the action. Just steps from these Aspen luxury vacation homes, each of the signature event venues will showcase the latest lines to wear on-piste or at the lodge.

The Après-Ski Stage, presided over by pro skier and founder of BARE Layers, Darcy Conover, will be hosting runway shows for some of the biggest names in outerwear, performance skiwear and luxury fur. Fur is a must for making a sartorial statement in Aspen so it should come as no surprise that AIFW’s most hotly anticipated show is from legendary furrier and longtime Aspen devotee Dennis Basso.

Basso kicks off AIFW but the great shows keep on coming with Columbia, Obermeyer, Gorski Furs, PolarMax and more.

In the evenings, engage in some retail therapy by attending Shop Aspen events hosted by J. Crew, Dennis Basso, Kate Spade and L’Occitane among others.

Finally, a who’s who of Aspen will be in attendance for AIFW’s closing event – the Black & White Ball at the Caribou Club benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Get into your most glamorous get-up for this masquerade-themed party à la Truman Capote where the fashion keeps on coming. See collections from One Moon, Jitrois and Pilar Tarrau while enjoying Champagne and canapés and bidding in the silent auction for a great cause.

Worried about getting access to this can’t-miss event? Don’t be! Visit the AIFW website for a ticket and get your most runway-side attire ready for a high fashion excursion. We’ll see you there!
