Ricky King 

Bringing Western Wear to modern times, Ricky King creates distinct clothing, all made in-house in Denver,CO, exclusively from thrifted and vintage materials.  Started by artist/designer Taylor Ross in 2015, Ricky King designs items that will stay in your wardrobe season after season, & year after year.

These pieces have also caught the eye of celebrities like Lady Gaga, who wore a bustier made out of cowboy boots in the music video “John Wayne”.


GANNI aims to create a memorable outfit. Since hitting the shopping scene in 2000, the label has been focusing on collections comprising fresh and contemporary spins on timeless silhouettes. Ganni not only creates beautiful garments, but also fun and creative shoe wear , that as you can see, will get any cowboy jealous


Inspired by the effortless style of NYC’s downtown It girls, Orseund Iris’ pieces are designed for the confident woman who is adventurous in both her style and life. Founder Alana Johnson aims to create wardrobe staples that feel at once nostalgic and modern.

Minimally over-sized items including the jumpsuits and bustiers are a perfect fit to some rodeo nights, as well as taking your horse to some old town road.


In 2015, Sarah Staudinger and George Augusto co-founded the LA-based brand upon the idea that fashion shouldn’t just empower women — it should be accessible, too. STAUD is design, involving a scrupulous attention to detail. If fashion is a never-ending pursuit of style, then STAUD is what happens after you’ve found it.
