ABOUT OUR COMPANY
My name is Alexis Bennett and I am a graduate of the University of Colorado Denver. I received a BA in Communication and a minor in legal studies. A string of unfortunate events have steered my life into a whole new direction. Up until 2009 I was a professional athlete, ranking top fifteen in the world in big mountain skiing. I was hit by a drunk driver and had to have hip surgery, which took away my career as a professional skier.
Shortly after my accident and subsequent surgery, my father was killed in a gold mining explosion. As the fourth generation gold miner from Colorado my father taught me the importance of hard work and perseverance. He truly loved what he did and if I could speak to him today I don’t think he would have any regrets. He was an inspiration for me and always encouraged me to follow my dreams.
As the fifth generation in Colorado I have always had a dream to open my own boutique. I decided there was no better time than now! I am now officially the owner of Class Act Collective! It’s an intimate boutique that carries a unique variety of apparel and accessories for men and women, new and vintage, from near and far. It’s an urban boutique that is fun, funky, and eclectic and truly has something for everyone. I support local artists and designers and am driven to continue to support my community. I carry many Colorado based companies including my own designs.
A part of my vision was to create an outdoor community gathering place where I can hold events and where friends, family, strangers, and people of all walks of life (I mean we are located on Colfax!) can come together to shop, socialize, listen to music, support local entrepreneurs, and well be merry!
I feel we have lost human-to-human interaction due to the Internet and I created a place where all are welcome to enjoy a good conversation, share stories, play dress up, and smile.
Keep Colfax Classy at Class Act Collective!
