Seattle Fashion Week is Back!

After a year on hiatus, Seattle Fashion Week Executive Producer, Gabriel Choy and team are back to make their mark on the Seattle fashion scene with exciting runway shows and a full line-up of fashion events. "Let’s show everyone that Seattle has what it takes! It’s time to connect the local fashion industry," says Gabriel. This year their biggest focus is on highlighting independent designers, unveiling fresh talent and showcasing Seattle’s best boutiques. “The Northwest is making a fashion statement,” says Seattle Fashion Week Marketing Coordinator, Andy Karuza, ”Making a statement has become our campaign slogan and it represents our determination to deliver this year's fashion week as a unifying factor in the local Seattle fashion and nightlife industries.
