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…

When Students Compete: 3rd Annual Comcast Fashion Show

April 11, 2011 2 comments

Student fashion shows bring a mixture of different levels of style and standard to the runway. Be prepared to see at least a few designs attempting to push the limits only to come across as overworked, unpolished and costume-y. But along side those designs is the chance to find a visionary. And that’s the reason who’s who pay attention, or at least send someone to pay attention.

April 6th 2011, Club Sur, in the SoDo District, played host to the 3rd Annual Comcast Student Designer Competition part of the Seattle Fashion Week prelude. The competition was also sponsored by Gene Juarez (Psst, that link goes to their Spring 2011 style photo shoot page-it’s pretty cool). They happened to play a hand in judging the competition, well two hands actually… Is that a big deal? Should the sponsors judge? What do you think? On one hand they help make it possible, are very well versed in fashion & style, on the other hand they’re still a sponsor–though it’s very common for sponsors to judge events. After all  the winner will represent the sponsors and show their collection in Seattle’s Fashion Week main event and takes home $1000 to help start their own line (I swear those words have to be copyrighted).

Becky Sulivan Fall 2009 Collection

What is it like winning two fashion design contests in one summer? “It was an amazing feeling,” according to Becky Sullivan. She won the Fall 2009 Seattle Fashion Week Comcast Student Design Contest and the 2009 “Best Everyday Collection” award in Seattle Magazine’s Seamless in Seattle Contest. For the first competition, designers created two outfits, one inspired by Comcast. “I went all out with my Comcast outfit and had computer mice on the skirt, buttons from the remote on the blouse and phone wire on the blouse,” said Sullivan.

Part of her awards included showing her fall collection at the Seattle Fashion Week Show and a limited collection in the Thaw Fashion Show. She is also a featured designer in the September 2009 edition of Seattle Magazine. Read more…
