Bellevue Collection celebrates independent designers
Aug '12
The Bellevue Collection celebrates for the third year in a row Fashion’s Night Out, an evening of high style and festivities on Sept. 6, 2012 from 7 - 9 p.m. The night includes a host of store events and special rewards for first arrivals along with a special salute to local independent designers.

Continuing the tradition of celebrating the work of independents, an exclusive Bellevue Square Center Court Fashion Exhibit will feature one look each from the 10 independent local fashion designers selected to participate in this much-anticipated Independent Designer Runway Show during Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection Sept. 26-30.

Seattle-area NBC’s Season One Fashion Star contestants Lisa Vian Hunter of Vian Hunter House of Fashion, and Lizzie Parker along with her partner Nicolas Bowes of Los Angeles, also a Fashion Star contestant, will join winning local designers to contribute one special look to the Fashion Exhibit and will headline the special Independent Designer Runway Show later that month. Other local designers are:

  • Anne Sylvain by Patricia Raskin
  • Ampersand As Apostrophe by Jessica Park
  • Bd Homme by Banchong Douangphrachanh
  • Built For Man by Francisco Hernandez
  • Carole McClellan by Carole McClellan
  • KateS Mensah by Kate Mensah
  • Masha Osoianu Design by Masha Osoianu
  • Olga Szwed by Olga Szwed

“Last year, we have begun a tradition of showcasing independent designers during this worldwide celebration of fashion,” says Jennifer Leavitt, Vice President of Marketing. She notes that the 2011 Bellevue Square exhibit featured independent designers in the ‘Nordic Fashion Biennale: Curator’s Cut.’

“This year, we are celebrating local area fashion designers, each with their own style and sensibility typical of Pacific Northwest designers. We have an independent spirit in this community that is beautifully expressed in the work of our local fashion designers.

“We are eager to do our part to foster and mentor these talented designers to help them build a successful fashion business. This special night, plus the upcoming runway show, will draw attention to their incredible designs.”

Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection’s Independent Designer Runway Show will take place on September 26, 2012.
