Urban Nights Fashion Show
My team & I attended the Urban Nights Fashion show last year, (62 weeks ago to be exact.) I was super impressed with the production and all around show, the crowd, location, everything. It was actually similar to a fashion show i went to in L.A. If your from Denver you know that's saying a lot. I told my friend as we watched the show, my brand was going to be in the next one....
One year later, here we are. Showcasing next to some of Denver's greatest boutiques and brands. It was very special to have my family and friends along side of me as we accomplished this 200ft long runway show.

It’s like nothing Denver’s seen before – a multi-sensory urban experience held in an elegant outdoor setting. Most importantly, Urban Nights generates financial and educational support for the outstanding work of Urban Peak, a nonprofit organization serving homeless youth and youth at risk of becoming homeless.
In October 2012, the Joseph Family Foundation assembled a committee of 50 volunteers forming the vision and beginning the strategic execution for the inaugural Urban Nights held in August of 2013. The event welcomed over 1400 guests, raised more than $150,000 for Urban Peak, and launched Denver’s newest and most exciting fundraiser.
Urban Nights is almost entirely supported by volunteers who support Urban Peak’s worthwhile mission. In early 2014, a new volunteer committee began building on the prior year’s successes laying the groundwork for the second annual Urban Nights.
When you walk onto Denver’s longest runway on August 1st, you will witness the culmination of hundreds of hours of work from volunteers wanting to help youth experiencing homelessness in our community.
Underwriting by the Joseph Family Foundation allows patron dollars from Urban Nights to flow entirely to the beneficiary, Urban Peak.
