Factory Fashion is returning for its second runway show at a DFW. The fashion school serves the Greater Denver community in Aurora at Stanley Marketplace. They offer a variety of fashion-related courses for children, teens and adults for anything from fashion illustration to costume design.

The bright young pupils in their DFW program began classes in August. During these sessions, the students work in small groups to conceptualize, design and construct a fully-realized look to be featured in the Couture Kids Day runway show.

Their previous contribution to DFW Spring ‘22 demonstrated the promising young talent that’s been fostered through Factory Fashion’s programs. Students delivered clever designs that were handcrafted with great care and attention to detail. As the Denver fashion community gears up for its biggest kids’ fashion showcase yet, Factory Fashion is expected to yield more creative looks from the minds of the younger generation.
