Fallene Wells is a prominent member of Denver’s creative community and is known locally as a passionate style maven who’s setting the stage for the local fashion scene through her work as a designer, hairstylist, fashion show producer and recent contestant on Project Runway Season 9. She’s also appearing in Sew it All TV Episode 306, in which she discusses how to put on a fashion show and how to make a fascinator. Stay tuned!
Fallene is planning to launch her vintage-modern inspired fashion line with the help of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, an online platform that has helped fund many creative projects worldwide. She has lofty goals of jump-starting her fashion career with the assistance of a team of local creatives and small businesses.
Fallene’s Modern Nouveau Collection, a new fashion line that takes a modern approach to the 1920s era, will update the fabrics, textures and styles of 1920’s fashion for today’s modern woman. With the launch of her collection, she will continue her support of the Denver fashion scene by employing local personnel to assist in the project, from photographers and art directors to other area designers, seamstresses, pattern makers, and business consultants. The clothes will be developed and manufactured in Denver utilizing the skills of local industry and design professionals to ensure quality in addition to supporting the growth and viability of the local creative business community.
Fallene’s Kickstarter campaign aims to raise $20,000 for the project in 45 days! She is counting on the generosity of individuals who believe in sustaining creative local economies; a little donation can go a long way when the word is spread throughout a larger community of supporters who can make this dream possible. In a crowdfunding campaign, individuals contribute what they can, however small or large – even if it’s just sharing a link across social media platforms to help raise awareness, and in return, donors can choose to receive a variety of rewards as a thank you for their contribution.
Fallene is a highly creative, high-energy individual who has been designing clothes since 2007. At the heart of Fallene’s work is a desire to give back to the Denver fashion community. She is a well-known figure in the Denver scene, and is always looking for ways to support and promote the city’s fashion industry. In addition, it is a goal of hers to help the creative small business community thrive. She shops local, raises money for area nonprofits and is a volunteer committee member of the Denver Design Incubator, a local non-profit that helps educate and support indie designers in producing their collections.
