A dozen Denver-area fashion designers created, cut and stitched in the Fashion Project at Tamarac Square, a month of challenges akin to those in Bravo’s hit show “Project Runway.” The designers made everything from little black dresses to outfits assembled only from items they bought at Ace Hardware. Last week, Armando Thomas Guerra, 28, emerged the winner. The Arvada native won a trip to New York Fashion Week in September and tickets to the designer show of his choice. The judges said they were consistently blown away by Guerra’s “strong vision.” Not bad for someone says he was a piano-playing “super nerd” in high school. He has spent the past several years at the Arvada Center, sewing costumes and maintaining wigs.
