Occupation: Fashion designer, Bri Seeley Designs
Destined for occupation since: My grandmother taught me how to sew when I was 6.
Pets: Two incredibly furry orange-and-white tabby cats
Grew up in: Northfield, Minnesota
Personal mission: Bring fashion back to the glamour and femininity seen in the 1950s
Best quality: It is also the quality that I would say is my worst quality—my honesty. I have definitely been known to fall into the “too honest” category.
People might be most surprised to learn: I have four tattoos.
Guilty pleasure: Shoes
Would spend a million dollars on: A trip to Bali, excessive amounts of fabric, a marketing and sales professional for my brand, and probably some new shoes.
Best place to eat a meal solo in Seattle: Wild Ginger. I like to sit in the bar and write while enjoying a glass of wine with some gluten-free appetizers.
Best way to spend a rainy day: There’s no sense in missing out on the city just to avoid the rain. I dress warm and brave the elements!
Favorite place for a first date: Any place that serves wine receives preference!
Go-to first-date strategy: Dress to impress and be my genuine, authentic self
