On Wednesday, September 26, teamed with Fashion Group International (FGI) and Femfessionals in Seattle, The Bellevue Collection will hold the first-ever Independent Designer Runway Show during the Northwest’s premier fashion event. Six lucky designers, chosen by a panel of judges selected by FGI and Femprofessionals will share the stage with Seattle-area NBC’s Season One Fashion Star contestants Lisa Vian Hunter of Vian Hunter House of Fashion, and Lizzie Parker along with her partner Nicolas Bowes of Los Angeles, also a Fashion Star contestant.
Fashion week in Bellevue will also include three other runway events:
September 27: Nordstrom Fall Fashion Show, spotlighting the best of contemporary and emerging designers. Proceeds will benefit the Detlef Schrempf Foundation. The Detlef Schrempf Foundation was formed on January 1, 1996 by Detlef Schrempf and his wife, Mari, as a result of their belief in the value of a solid family life, and the desire to give back to a community that has given them so much. The Detlef Schrempf Foundation serves as a fundraising entity for Northwest children’s charities, enabling organizations to expand their own fundraising efforts. The foundation’s vision is to assist these support organizations in their quest to provide children a better chance at succeeding in life.
September 28th: Posh Party Beauty and Trend Show, a stylish evening of cocktails, appetizers, a runway show of fall’s must-have fashion and beauty trends – all to benefit Bellevue LifeSpring. The mission of the Bellevue LifeSpring is to promote stability, self-sufficiency and independence for those in need in the Bellevue community through programs and services that feed, clothe, shelter and educate.
September 29th: Front Row Fashion Show, Vogue will present fall trends straight from the pages of the world’s leading fashion magazine to the runway. 100% of the ticket sales from Front Row Fashion benefit The Moyer Foundation.
