Ep.9 PAUL ITALIANO of Denver's FashioNation tells the story of how two young punkers with $1000 and a dream built this city's coolest punk clothing boutique.

Pam and Paul Italiano have been hard at work on their dream, FashioNation, Denver's coolest and longest standing alternative boutique for people of all ages (literally from 6mo old, to 99!) for almost 30 years. Starting in 1987 with $1000 and about 40 pieces of clothing, they have built one of our city's most beloved establishments (15 times on Westword's annual Best of Denver list). It's no wonder...They're some of the coolest people you'll ever meet. We sat down with Paul to get the story on how they got started, why they feel they've never gone out of style, and to get some sage advice for young entrepreneurs.
