After the careful review of 37 talented applicants, The Bellevue Collection’s Independent Designer Runway Show (IDRS) panel of local fashion leaders selected eleven local fashion designers to participate in the second annual Independent Designer Runway Show. The show is set for Wednesday, September 25th during this year’s Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection 2013.
 
Selected Designers are: 
-Benu Cashmere by Claire Kim
-Corban Harper by Corban Harper
-Erin Roby by Erin Roby erinroby.com
-Lastwear Clothing Company by Rowan Rhys lastwear.com
-Lia Pal by Liuba Palanciuc liapalfashion.com
-Michael Cepress by Michael Cepress michaelcepress.com
-Ozen Company by Aykut Ozen ozencompany.com
-Paychi Guh by Paychi Karen Guh paychiguh.com
-Sarsen by Heather Ellrod shopsarsen.com
-Trina Pierre by Trina Kelly
-Wyatt Orr by Liise Wyatt & Karly Orr wyattorr.com
 
Over the next few months, the designers will go through a process of mentorship from the panel with the end result of each designer presenting a ten look collection on the runway. One of the selected designers will receive a prize package that includes $5,000 cash to help build their business and a special display in Bellevue Square during the month of October.
 
“It is an ardent task that The Bellevue Collection took on last year; to give Indie Designers a showcase to put their dreams forth on a beautiful runway and professionally produced show that is on par with New York Fashion Week events I have attended in the past at Bryant Park,” shares IDRS 2012 Winner, Carole McClellan. 
 
“Several of us that night felt the spark of something new and exciting that was created in Seattle for the design community. I do not say community lightly as it was said over and over. Kemper Development really took a risk with this. But they are building community by taking this on. Independent fashion designers finally have a proper forum for nurturing the talent we have here in our region. Patrons, industry executives, bloggers, and general fashion enthusiasts all under one roof.”
 
She goes on to elaborate on projects resulting from her selection last year as the winning designer. “The win of IDRS last year opened new doors for me as well as re-opened a lot of old doors. A lot of new clients for custom work, industrial design for Evergreen Healthcare (signature mammography gowns), a headlined show at EMP for Black Leather Jacket, press interviews with Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Seattle Magazine, Seattle Times, many bloggers and a discussion with a group in Paris for a showing. And not the least, are talks with investors as they finally saw my ability to present looks at a full top-level runway and receive a win and national press.”
 
The event is a featured runway show of Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection, Sept. 25th – 29th, 2013.
