The Inside Scoop: Bellevue Fashion Week

This year Bellevue Fashion Week has a solid line up of do-not-miss events so take my advice and block out your calendar now! Fashion week runs from September 29th- October 4th and will include runway fashion shows, VIP shopping nights and even a couture hair and fashion show sponsored by 7 Salon and the Zebra Club. The main event of course is the Vogue “Front Row Fashion Runway Show” produced by Vogue Magazine using fashion from The Bellevue Collection. Special guest Anne Vincent, Director of Merchandising for Vogue, will be on hand to share her insight on Fall’s Must-Have items.

Fashion Week will kick-off on September 29th with a screening of The September Issue, a documentary that focuses on Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, who is one of the most powerful women in the world of fashion and also the driving force behind the heavily edited fashions that grace the pages of Vogue. The debut will be followed by a special invite-only after party featuring a Q & A reception with The September Issue  Director R. J. Cutler. To view the movie trailer, click here.

“With all of the new luxury brands choosing to open at The Bellevue Collection including Burberry, Michael Kors and Hugo Boss, plus the broad collection of haute designers featured at Nordstrom and boutiques like David Lawrence and Mercer, partnering with Vogue to present our major fashion event was a perfect match,” says Jennifer Leavitt, vice president of marketing, Kemper Development Company (KDC), owners of The Bellevue Collection. “This partnership speaks to the affluence, sophistication and fashionable sensibility of our core customers. We are ecstatic to be able to bring Vogue to the Northwest for Fashion Week at The Collection.”
