With the beautiful Lake Union at sunset serving as the backdrop, some of Seattle’s hottest fashion designers will present their newest designs on the runway, including Devon Yan-Berrong, Jersey Virago Designs, Anne Sylvain Hand Bags, Kimmi Designs and Boring Sidney Hats and Headresses. The art showcase will feature celebrated photographer McCade Dolan’s work, featured in the pages of publications as renowned as Vogue Italia, and the lovely paintings of Anya Zaysteva.

The evening will also include a raffle allowing guests the chance to win VIP bottle service and table packages at some of Seattle/Bellevue’s hottest nightclubs, Suite Lounge and Last Supper Club; a canvas print from showcased photographer, McCade Dolan of Cadeography; a professional wine-tasting class with a sommerlier; a Jersey Virago Designs swimsuit; movie tickets; salon sessions, and much more!

After the fashion show, guests will enjoy a LIVE performance by R&B singing sensation, Rocky Sandoval, nationally touring artist who has graced the stage with and toured with Jodeci, Ginuwine, Boyz II Men, to name a few!

The evening’s festivities will go to benefit the amazing Kris Owens. Following a great run at the former Pnk Ultra Lounge/Wasabi Bistro, Kris Owens took on an exciting new opportunity at Cucina!Cucina! before contracting what he thought was pneumonia. Having won a fight for his life against what doctors discovered to be stage 4 cancer, Kris continues to battle every day to not only keep going, but to keep his head above water. He is dependent upon a $65,000/per year prescription regimen that has bankrupted his family due to his inability to work.

Kris Owens has been part of the Seattle nightlife and hospitality food and beverage industry for over 20 years. He has mentored many of the best of the best in this city, and now it is time to give back! From the deejays he booked and gave their first residence, to the servers, bar staff and so many others that called him “boss,” to the countless thousands and thousands of guests he hosted and entertained, the Emerald City owes a lot of favors to this gem of a man!
