How many fashion shows can claim the governor AND his wife AND their kids as audience members and models?
But Colorado's First Family was only one of the things that made this year's Reach for the Starz Fashion Show special.
Children with life-threatening illnesses modeled the hottest labels in this second-annual fund-raiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Make-A-Wish makes it possible for children with serious illnesses to take trips to places such as Disney World and to do other fun things, such as meet famous athletes.
Bacchus Productions was in charge of the event at Nordstrom Center at FlatIron Crossing.
Young models from Aspire Model Agency added their talents to the show, which featured kids of all ages in the cool clothing for Colorado's cold winters.
Local merchants provided the fashions.
