Fashion Week @ The Bellevue Collection
The runway returns to Bellevue 👠
Seattle is allegedly a global (anti)fashion capital with a style identity that pulls from eclectic influences: made-to-be-seen outdoor apparel, vintage thrift store scores, and a love for grunge that never died. To celebrate our weird influences, get playful this fall and attend one of three fashion week events at The Bellevue Collection. Expect to see current (and sometimes contradictory) trends: bold and bright colors, black from head to toe, lingerie-inspired shapes, and menswear-inspired suiting.
Some highlights: The Posh Party Trend Show on October 7, a glam night out with general admission tickets at $100. They include a $20 promo card and a swag bag. The Collective Runway Show on October 8 is inspired by fashion week runways from around the world but presented with a PNW twist. General admission runs $125 and includes a $25 promo card and a swag bag. (For $10, commemorate this moment with an illustration of yourself at the show by fashion illustrator Drawing Blueberry.) Both of these shows are at 6:30 pm at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue, and 100% of ticket sales benefit Treehouse and Dress for Success Seattle, respectively.
On October 13, the What She Said panel will feature trailblazing local women in fashion. Valerie Madison (Valerie Madison Fine Jewelry), Sydney Mintle (Gossip & Glamour), Elisa Yip (Sskein), Brittany Sierra (The Sustainable Fashion Forum), and fashion consultant Lauren Pistoia will discuss their entrepreneurial journeys, lessons learned, and tips for success. This one takes place at 6 pm at the W Bellevue, and a portion of the $65 ticket will benefit Ada Developers Academy.
