Designer Adrienne Antonson is one talented lady. Not only does the Vashon Island-based artist craft supremely weird/awesome bugs out of human hair, she happens to be the creative genius behind Capitol Hill shop NuBe Green’s in-house line, State.
When I sat down this afternoon to peruse the runway looks from last Friday's Luly Yang Couture Fashon Show, I was hoping to narrow down my favorites to a neat, tidy top five list. You’ll just have to indulge me with nine.
Here’s your chance to grab hot-off-the-runway style: Local jewelry maven Sarah Loertscher just returned to town after runs at Los Angeles’ and El Paseo’s fashion weeks, where her innovative sculptural jewels were paired with Project Runway alum Mila Hermanovski’s new collection.
As the team at Luly Yang Couture approaches the month-to-show mark next week, the fabulous social media manager Andrew Hoge sent me a quick recap of their week complete with a juicy peek at some fabric being used in the April 27 couture show.
Tomorrow morning, at 9 a.m. sharp, the downtown Nordstrom Rack completes its move from Second Ave to Westlake Center with a grand opening celebration. Last night, I got a sneak peek at roomy new space, and let me say: It is glorious.
If you’re a Project Runway fan, you’ll love Seamless in Seattle. We’re combing the city for the best up-and-coming fashion designers hungry to change the face of local fashion. This year, we’re offering the winners big prizes, such as the chance to launch their line at a premier fashion event. Find complete details on the event below:

So, it’s officially fall now isn’t it? (My pants are still damp from my walk in this morning and it is now 2 p.m.) Rather than get bogged down by the puddles, pull out the proverbial mood umbrella and use these cheery new fall offerings to block out the doom:
Kids, Seattle outdid itself last night: the fun and fashionable were out and about all over town from Eastside to west for Fashion's NIght Out, shopping, gabbing and ready for fall fashion (despite the summer-like heat, though nobody complained too much).
It’s been a big week around here: Our fall shopping and style-packed September issue has hit the newsstands. In case you missed it, earlier this week, I gave readers a little behind the scenes peek at pulling the issue together –and trying to fit in over 100 local finds–here.
Sometimes I am my own worst enemy: Back in March when I first suggested to Editorial Director Rachel Hart that we feature only local products in our fall fashion and shopping issue, I had no idea what I was getting myself into (or that I would play stylist for a day!).
Moms (and Dads) of Seattle tired of schlepping your kids to the pool and getting your cute shoes all wet, rejoice! I have discovered a comfy new pair of shoes for you to knock around in and wear from the pool to the grocery store and even to work if you're lucky to be in a creative line of work as I am.
