Agenda: Flight to Luxury
If there’s one Denver fashion fete at which your presence is all but mandatory, it’s the Flight to Luxury event to benefit Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. The annual soiree, produced by the all-too-fabulous Cuvée Escapes, is known for its over-the-top elegance. Food, wine, jets, villas, jazz and of course fashion all take center stage in the name of charity. Held in two private jet hangars, the red carpet evening is a favorite amongst the city’s see and be seen crowd and always boasts a surprise or two (aerialists pouring Veuve from above, anyone?). This year’s event ups the ante with Art Takes Flight, a specially curated collection from Aspen Art Gallery, whose sales will all benefit Boys and Girls Clubs. Naturally, the fashion will impress too, with a runway show featuring the likes of Andrisen Morton, Gracie’s, Alicia, Goldyn, Mariel, Cry Baby Ranch, ML Furs and Swim N’ Sport. For the foodie, there’s tastings from the town’s top eateries (Linger, Root Down, Old Major and Ocean Prime to name a few) and cocktails aplenty. For the car enthusiasts, check out exotic automobiles from Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini, Maserati and Aston Martin or browse the collection of private jets that grace the hangars with their indelible presence. Of course, the highlight of the evening is the auction – which boasts once in a lifetime trips to the Cuvée Escapes Villas -Tuscany, Cabo and New York among them.
