Fashion Fusion: Native Textiles in Spanish Colonial Art (Fusión en la moda: Textiles autóctonos en el arte colonial español) es parte de la exhibición que se encuentra esparcida por todas las instalaciones del museo Spun: Adventures in Textiles (Hilado: Hazañas con textiles).

Extraída de la gran colección de arte colonial español del Denver Art Museum, Fusión en la moda observa la influencia que han tenido los textiles en otros ámbitos artísticos.

La colección del Denver Art Museum incluye varias pinturas coloniales en las que se retratan textiles nativos tales como los diseños geométrico reminiscentes de los retablos tocapu del imperio inca y las capas y huipiles similares a los que portaban los hombres y las mujeres aztecas.
