I cover Carole McClellan often because I really think she’s one of Seattle’s best designers and I totally love her rock and roll style. So, when there’s a chance to share her with my audience, I try to do just that.
On Wednesday, November 13, McClellan is showing off Sovereign, her new leather ready-to-wear line at W Seattle as part of the hotel’s Wear Wednesdays series. From 5 to 7 p.m., McClellan her luscious, lovely, soft and chic leather and cashmere collection, which includes leggings, shift dress, pencil skirt and jackets for women and two styles of trousers, a leather shirt, a T-shirt and two stylish jackets for men, as well as cashmere underpinnings will be available for pre-order for March or April delivery.
There will be informal modeling and W Seattle has created a specialty cocktail in the designer’s honor called the Smooth and Smokey, with thyme and lime infused gin smoked with alder wood and finished with yuzu and tonic—a dollar from each of which goes to Fashion Group International's Seattle Scholarship Fund to support emerging designers, merchandisers and production professionals.
