Why I love Bellevue Fashion Week


FASHON WEEK
AT THE BELLEVUE COLLECTION
SEPT 23-27th, 2015

Happy Friday!   I have been buried all week in the posts from NYFW and loving all the amazing styles I'm seeing on the runways for fall.  I could not make it to New York, but am so excited that Bellevue Fashion Week is almost in my backyard!  Last year was my first time to go and I could not wait for it to come around again!

 This year is the 10th Anniversary celebration of the Bellevue Collection hosting the show. BFW is the Northwest's leading runway show.  The show promises an exciting experience with four days of packed full fashion feasting!  The highlight of this years fashion week will be the Posh Party Trend Show, hosted by fashion celebrity Rachel Zoe.  She is  a stylist to the stars, has a show on Bravo, and is a designer of  her own line.

The Posh Party event is one you won't want to miss. There will be interactive beauty stations to view and try out the latest trends. How fun does that sound!?!  Admission to the party, also includes an evening runway show showcasing the hottest styles this fall.

On Saturday at 1:30 p.m Rachel,along with Vogue Sylist Cara Crowley, will host the Fashion Forecast event. This will take place in Bellevue Square's center court. This is a free event, so be sure to arrive early to get front row seating.  I absolutely loved the mall event last year!  It was a very fun interactive experience, and I learned a lot. Getting my picture taken with Cara and Celebrity stylist  Lawrence Zarian was also a highlight of my day there!


While you are at the mall be sure to check out all the amazing window displays put together just for fashion week.  Do so at your own risk, ha ha! I had a very hard time controlling my urges, I wanted it all! If you are in the area, I do hope you can make it.  Have you attended fashion weeks in other cities? If so, be sure to share your experience in the comments! 

Thanks for stopping by and see you here again soon!

  10. I definitely dream about going to this party place again. The live music at venues in Los Angeles was an added bonus, providing a backdrop for the fun hours spent imbibing, tasting, and chatting up with the breweries and beer distributors.
