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…

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.

Actually…

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.

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 allĀ  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).
