Independent Designer Runway Show Bellevue Fashion Week September 2017 was held at the Hyatt Bellevue in downtown Bellevue and hosted by the Bellevue Collection.
This show is one of my favorite, locally produced annual fashion shows. In fact, because I was apart of the first year, I will always feel a sentimental attachment to this show. A local version of Project Runway, this show takes nominations in the spring time for local designers to compete for the best collection, with about six months to make it happen.
With a special panel of judges who meet monthly with the designers, it’s always such a treat to watch the video interviews at the beginning of the show before the looks come down the runway. It’s so great to see the local fashion scene thriving in a city that’s better known for tech and business casual.
