The 12 Best Looks from Fashion First in Seattle

Oct 6, 2016 | Events & Design, Menswear, Women

They say the number thirteen is unlucky. However, I can say for certain this does not apply to Seattle’s longest running independent fashion show Fashion FirstKicking off Seattle’s fashion season, the show saw an impressive and stylish crowd arrive at the Motif Hotel eager to see which designs the Northwest’s most innovative designers and boutique owners would send down the runway. This year’s theme was “Vinyl Vault” and it was no surprise that edgy, rock and roll inspired outfits were brought to life by show producer Terri Morgan’s fleet of stunning models. Established style destinations such as David Lawrence and The Finerie debuted upscale, sophisticated ensembles. While newer brands Sharply and Divalani Style showcased fresh designs that would appeal to a modern Seattleite’s desire for comfortable, well-made outfits with a stylish twist.

As someone who has produced a fashion show or two, I had a great time sitting back and watch Joan Kelly and Brooke Hubbard’s vision come to life. In a city known for its abundance of flannel and Birkenstocks the good news is these brands are available right in our backyard. Seattle, you’re growing up and I love it.
