This was the fashion show I’ve been waiting for! The audience was able to feel like part of the vignettes, we got to interact with models, and see the outfits displayed in an artistic form, it broke the barrier between the traditional set-up that has been the norm for years. The night flowed flawlessly from one theme to another which included a modern, romantic, and avant garde selection of outfits from a mix of designers. Models displayed clothing by brands from Nordstrom including Calvin Klein, Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten, Fendi, Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Valentino and more.

The Season/Shift event took place at Block 41, a 1927, remodeled ice warehouse right in Belltown. You would never know the architectural beauty until you step in the door. This year the invite list was more selective to create an environment that allowed us to talk to the models, see the clothing up close, make orders on the spot, and enjoy the company of the crowd.
When I’m there I want to touch, to feel, and explore all the new designs I get to play with when styling clients. It’s my favorite place to be immersed in all the color. I definitely found my favorite trends of the season including colorful fur, cropped flares, comfortable shoes, and plastic chic.
There’s an array of fabric combos now with technology that faux fur is a big deal. The dyes and prints added have expanded the classic mink coat to something more affordable and fun.
I know you’ve all gotten comfortable with skinny jeans but these look so much cuter on than you would think. You’ll find a new jean favorite to change up your look.
Thank goodness our lives are crazy busy and comfortable shoes are the way to go. My feet thank you designer gods for creating flats I can wear with my very pretty dresses.
There’s nothing to hide, show off your outfit in your rain-proof jacket. This is a great piece transitioning to fall because it’s still lightweight enough to keep you cool. I have yet to personally try on a plastic chic piece…..I’ll let you know how it goes.
