Fashion and Edibles mean Hype and Hemp for more

Since the Indy first wrote about the Blackberry Maverick in April last year, the Colorado Springs clothing label has expanded sales into Denver, set up an office on East Platte avenue,and been featured in Los Angeles fashion magazines.
All of which takes us to the brand’s upcoming Spring/Summer collection-referencing the dualities inside of us and themed around stormy sweets-which you can catch at a trunk show, Hype and Hemp at 8.a.m, March 20 Friday, hosted by studio A64(332 E Colorado Avenue,studioa64.com). Entry is 5$ with dresses from $75 to $95.
Blackberry describes it’s approach to design as “Taking the retro woman to the edge”, which includes clothing made from hemp blend, founder and designer Leslie Robertson says via Web Chat. She says “There is a lot of buzz around this choice, It is an amazing fabric”. She says”We are doing this event as a beta test, to see what the actual interest is and are planning to do our second production run utilizing all fabrics that are bamboo, hemp, organic cotton and recycled poly”.
A dress up party with Polarid and digital photographers and marijuana edibles from Sara Giron can be expected by attendees.
Robertson says “We will outfit the area to be a woman’s dream closet we will have rolling racks, Steamer trunks full of accessories and shoes from irregular choice, our sponsor. The idea is to create an environment that will allow women to let out their child and play dress up. THey will also have an opportunity to participate alongside actual models in a fashion show”
