A letter from the editor…Icons of Essence

Etsy 10

Style is an involuntary RFLX. It’s something you’re born with. No one can give it to you and no one can take it away. It’s the very fabric of your being. It’s a projection of who you are and who you want to be, at this very moment. There really is no exact “right” and there’s no “wrong”. It’s all about how you feel and what inspires you.

We, at RFLX 5280, are inspired by everything from music and art to literature and dance. Inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone–which is why we try to take the time to talk about under-hyped icons of style. From Jill Scott to Daniel Craig, these iconic looks stay with us and whether we realize it or not, they influence the way we express our own styles everyday.

Why do we care so much about what someone else wears? Why is fashion and style so pervasive throughout the entire world? When I started RFLX 5280, I thought about what makes an iconic look so enviable and realized that this envy is not only of what an icon wears, but quite literally, who they are. We want to dress like Jane Birkin because we want the Jane Birkin essence for ourselves. We want to have a Jane Birkin experience. To think that clothing symbolizes something about a person that is much deeper than economic status or occupation is kinda profound–but this is the way we are all inspired by style, without even realizing it!

Team RFLX 5280 is also inspired by you, our readers and our mission is to help you style savvy people of the Mile High city realize your own essence. So what’s YOUR style? Click the “Show us YOUR style” button on the top menu to see how YOU and your closet can get featured in a future Style RFLX post. Thanks for reading our blog! We hope to hear from you soon.

Much Love,

Skin Therapy Fashion Showcase 22 March 2013, 8:00pm

Skin Theraphy Fashion Show

[Click on the flyer to go to the Facebook event page!]

As much as I love mainstream fashion and apparel, I get even more excited about the pool of local independent designers we have here in the Mile High.  These designers are true artists.  They don’t have the weight of a 100 year old label’s reputation screwing up influencing their creative decisions.  These designers have free reign to show us what inspires them.

Denver has a genius pool of artistic designers, btw, two of which will be showcasing their custom creations at Unit E, a creative space and art collective, on March 22nd.  Bex Zilla Design and Phaulty Phantasmagoria are custom apparel labels based in the Denver area. Support your local designers at the Skin Therapy Show.
