“The Aprés Ski Stagewas the perfect setting for the runway shows at Aspen International Fashion Week. Being outside, seeing all these beautiful clothes and having the mountains and blue skies as a backdrop just adds something special to the whole experience,” commented Maggie Bittner, associate director of events & education, SIA.

“Polarmax was so excited to show our 2014.2015 line at AIFW this year. Baselayer has traditionally been a category that is hidden under other layers of clothing, but as the market continues to demand more multi-functional pieces baselayer is becoming a major player in the Snow Sports Fashion world,” said Jacqueline Wazir, marketing coordinator for Polarmax.’s F/W 14.15 Mega Trends - Presented by Stylesight Show focused on next season’s overarching trends for both the ski and snowboard markets. The five color trends included pink, golden/rust tones, and blues, plus plaids and coloring blocking.
