Make it or Miss it? Actually it’s really a “Make it or Miss out?” kind of weekend. Part 1.

June 2, 2011 Comments off

So we have some killer events going on this weekend in Seattle. Of course Seattle has NO idea how to plan things so they don’t overlap and thus we have to rush from one event to the other or completely pick and choose. Luckily this weekend isn’t soo bad. I just don’t get it sometimes. I mean Hello! There are weekends that are completely dull that could be utilized- but no, organizers just don’t plan ahead and don’t see what else is going on. Or perhaps they think their event is so fantastic that it is worth competing. Whatever the case may be at least this weekend there’s only one or three events that you are going to miss. At least you’ll be able to attend a couple events I think are worthwhile- and honestly that should be all that’s really important. 😉 Read more…

Anna D at Seattle Fashion Week 2011: A beautiful collection with a less than perfect production.

May 24, 2011 2 comments

The opening number (in this case runway show) of a production has to be prepared to be the buffer for glitches and mistakes that happen due to technical errors, models forgetting their choreography and other unfortunate mistakes. But normally you don’t have to worry about that on the second night of a production. Unfortunately for the Anna’s debut collection at Seattle Fashion Week, though her garments, hair and makeup were lovely, all did not “appear” to go as planned. At least not from where I was sitting. And sadly the complaints regarding her lighting and models afterwards were far from meek or few. Read more…

Explore and come Face to Face with “Walking Contradictions” in Tonight’s Fashion Show

May 20, 2011 Comments off

Seattle Pacific University is hosting a fashion show tonight. The show, called Walking Contradictions, starts at 6pm. Presented by the SPU Fashion Group, the fashion show will take on contradictions found all around us such as dark vs light, old vs new, rich vs poor, and soft vs hard. While each designer interprets these designs through their own personal styles and means an overall theme focusing on the contradictions involving body image will course through the room as the models walk down the runway.

Voss Rock Steals the Show at Seattle Fashion Week 2011

May 19, 2011 Comments off

Voss Rock was more than just the name of a clothing label at the Seattle Fashion Week Men’s Fashion Show it was a statement.


It was more of an exclamation: Loudly made on the runway and screamed from the general admission area. There were a lot of fans in the audience and for good reason, I quickly found out.

While I’ve been impressed by the construction of Voss Rock and appreciated their designs, I haven’t necessarily been a fan… until now. I will proudly say I want my own Voss Rock clothes; lots of pieces from this collection.

I love the armbands here from Voss Rock. I knew suspenders had been coming back in for a while here and there- but this is glam-edgy with the V peaking through at the top of the crisscross. It's just super sexy.

I also loved the hair accessories-check them out. Hair & makeup did a fantastic job completing the Voss look.

Recapture the Night: SFW Press Reception & Industry Party

May 13, 2011 1 comment

One of the fun and not so fashion centric things about Seattle Fashion Week this year is there seems to be a lot of parties. Though I don’t hear anyone complaining specifically about the fact that there are parties. They’re a great way to relax in between shows and events and better yet get to know other people in the industry and people who just enjoy or have a passion for fashion. Or parties.

So with the help of photographer Jonathan P. Beck, I thought we could relive the evening in style. Through images forever caught in the moment. If you see your photo or recognize someone else and I haven’t tagged it, leave me a comment and I’ll update it.

If you use any of the photos please give credit to Jonathan Beck, you can find links to his sites and more information at the bottom of the page. Click here to jump there now.

Seattle Fashion Week Launch Party: When details change. Does it matter?

May 12, 2011 1 comment

On the official opening night of Seattle Fashion Week, I attended the Launch Party held at Trinity.  The most alluring and intriguing aspect of the description for the evening was also what created the only frustration:

Showcase Seattle designers, displaying custom designs within the event in an interactive, non-runway format throughout the night.

That sounds sweet right? I mean, I envisioned one of two things: either pedestals where models stood with labels describing the designer and the garment or models strategically placed throughout the venue on the floor who rotated spots every X minutes. But instead of an interactive showcase seen throughout the night, for over half the night the ladies’ room was turned into a greenroom; completely overcrowded with male and female models and of course hair and makeup artists. They, of course, were getting ready for the mini-fashion show that took place instead, but if you consider the public attending paid a $10 cover to get in and about $8 for a basic call drink; being able to freshen up without squeezing by 20 people shouldn’t be a requirement.
