The fashion event of the summer came down Friday night when Fallene Wells introduced her Modern Nouveau collection at Fall Friperie, a show at Walker Fine Art. The line received a rave review from its audience, which appreciated Wells’s concept of mixing and matching separates and fun patterns.
The show featured models standing on giant hatboxes and swapping clothes to create new looks — essentially playing dress-up in front of an audience that could buy the pieces and then do the same at home.
Wells, the Westword MasterMind, designer, hairstylist, makeup artist, Project Runwayseason nine contestant and creator of Forever Darling, pulled out all the stops for her first solo show, which featured eleven pieces on five models. The models wore big fluffy hairstyles, towering high heels and garments in both floral patterns and earthy tones including yellow, nude and black as they strutted around the gallery.

Great Write up on Examiner.com!
Fallene moved to Denver from Las Vegas in 2001 and hasn’t looked back since. With her “Let Em Have It!” attitude, custom designs and impeccable styling, she’s a force to be reckoned with. In her own words, “I recently started to pursue my “Passion For Fashion”, from the age of 11 I had a vision of becoming a Fashion Designer, sketching out my collections and planning my future shows. My mom gave me an introductory to sewing and have been self taught since.” Bottom line, she’s a natural talent with good taste.
