DENVER’S DAY: Hip young things in the Mile High City traded shorts and sandals for slinky summer dresses Saturday night at the high-energy Riverfront Park Fashion Show, where Betsey Johnson was the first of the evening’s three featured designers. The annual runway show and cocktail party benefited the charity Railyard Dogs and drew about 1,200 people beneath the 200-foot Millennium Bridge.“People are surprised there’s this kind of thing in Denver,” said stylist Tobie Orr, who produced the event with East West Partners. “But we have people who have flown in from all over for this.”

In addition to Johnson’s fall collection, Aspen-based designer Gabriel Conroy showed whimsical couture, followed by a Parisian collection from Sue Wong, who has created ready-to-wear separates inspired by the film “Eat Pray Love,” out in August.

In years past, Riverfront Park Fashion has featured runway shows by Catherine Malandrino and Robert Rodriguez.
