Frisco fashion show is a one of a kind

FRISCO – All eyes will be on the runway tonight at Chill, but it’s all about the clothes.That’s because the models at the hip nightclub will be decked out in the creations of local clothing designers.According to designer Sarah Deutsch, fashion show crowds are usually reserved because people are interested solely in buying and looking at the designs. But tonight’s show will definitely be an exception.”This show is all about appreciating the designer, the models and the clothes,” Deutsch said. “It’s about getting out of the house, having some cocktails and having fun.”Chill will be hosting its first fashion show in more than two years, featuring the designs of Chris Hovland of Chebaby Resort Wear, and Sara Deutsch of Sara Wear. Both designers custom make their products for individual customers as well as local stores and boutiques.Hovland designs clothing for women that can be characterized as classy resort wear, featuring mini-skirts, halter tops and a new bikini line that will be modeled tonight. Evening gowns are on his list of designs as well.”It’s definitely one-of-a-kind clothing; you’ll see a little of everything,” Hovland said.

The designs sell at a few boutiques throughout Summit County, but Hovland is hoping to expand the line. He’s been in business with Chebaby for about three years and mainly works with digital art, photography and graphic design. His clothes are custom made.Deutsch distinguishes her clothes as comfortable, unique designs created with flowing fabrics and bright colors. She creates backless tanks, skirts and party clothes. She also designs dresses and is mainly focused on a spring/summer line. She’s currently working on designing an outerwear line for Levitate, a skate/snowboard store in Dillon.Deutsch started Sara Wear two years ago, shortly after graduating from Colorado State University. To create the original pieces, Deutsch picks out fabrics from Costa Rica, Europe and the U.S. Tonight is Deutsch’s first fashion show in Summit County.”We really need stuff like this up here,” Deutsch said. “I really think there will be something everyone could like.”Deutsch’s designs will be featured in another show at Copper Mountain during the Gravity Games in two weeks.”They’re the kind of clothes you can wear outside and still look pretty,” she said. “A lot of people don’t see anything like that.”
