The Pacific Northwest is kicking off Spring with four unique events for the Second Annual Metropolitan Fashion Week, April 6 through 13.
Opening Night – Saturday, April 6
Start the week off at the Met Fashion Week opening night at the PRATT Fine Arts Center in Seattle. The dress-to-impress evening will be filled with music, fashion, art, and the Gene Juarez Salons & Spas Avant Garde Hair Show. Designers displaying their fashion creations will include Deyonte’ Weather, Gingerlyn Bellus and international designer, Dar Sara. The PRATT Fine Arts Center will also exhibit art pieces from their canvas project designers, Julie Danforth, Deyonte’ Weather, Gingerlyn Bellus and Milagros Lugo. One hundred percent of the opening night ticket sales will benefit the PRATT, the only facility in the Northwest where beginners and established artists are able to work side-by-side to create art. PRATT offers affordable studios with equipment that is beyond compare and offers artists of all ages, abilities and backgrounds the opportunity to learn, experiment, and create.
