Since its founding in 1988, the Denver, Colorado-based Urban Peak has been at the forefront of the fight against youth homelessness, serving thousands of young people every year through diverse programming and at its shelter and daytime drop-in center. In support of this mission, Urban Peak and the Denver community have banded together for an annual summer festival, Urban Nights, a fashion extravaganza held under the stars at the state’s longest urban runway. The next Urban Nights, scheduled for August 29, 2015, promises to be an event to remember.
Featuring a fashion showcase with local talent and industry stars, Urban Nights will also include parties before and after the event at Mile High Station. Denver’s best and brightest fashionistas will send their works down the runway alongside those of the event’s featured designer, Mondo Guerra of Project Runway, who will be contributing his work to the show for the second year running. This year’s design theme is “#grateful,” an expression of thanks for the work of Urban Peak’s contributors and the youths affected by homelessness who have been helped by the charity’s mission. All proceeds will go to Urban Peak.
