DENVER (October 22, 2014) – ArtDenver, an all-new indoor fine arts experience featuring national fine artists, Colorado makers, art installations, interior design and fashion, announces Justin LeBlanc and Geoffrey Mac as featured designers for the Opening Night Party & Fashion Show on Friday, November 14 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Colorado Convention Center. LeBlanc and Mac will be joining headlining designer Michael Costello and featured designer and creative consultant Mondo Guerra.

As a New York-based designer, Mac has won several national awards for his unique designs that mash up futurism and vintage eras. His distinct and unmistakable aesthetic of clothing and accessories have gained him a celebrity following, including Debby Harry, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Ke$ha.

Similarly, LeBlanc has gained national and international recognition for his novel collections that reflect his life and passions. The Project Runway veteran embraced his deafness in his designs and allowed it to heavily influence his collections.
